  • On behalf of the Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter, I would like to thank the Posse Shack for allowing us to fundraise at their April’s first Sunday of the month pancake breakfast.
    It was a tremendously successful event where we raised more than $3,000 for the animals of Northern New Mexico.
    I would like to extend special gratitude to Bob and Steve, who flipped hundreds of pancakes that morning.
    Sandy, who labored in front of a hot griddle, turning out bacon and sausages endlessly and Mark, who cooked eggs with skilled finesse.
    And last but not least, a big shout-out of thanks to Randy, who masterfully juggled overseeing the entire operation and directing the volunteers to chores that needed attending to.

  • On April 29 the Los Alamos Phi Beta Kappa Association will hold its 56th annual banquet to honor the top graduates of Los Alamos High School at 5:30 p.m. April 29.

    The banquet for the honor graduates, Phi Beta Kappa members and their guests, will be at Fuller Lodge and will be catered by Decadent Table.

  • When local French horn player, John Hargreaves, was asked if his instrument is the hardest instrument to learn to play well, he just smiled, didn’t give a direct answer but said, “French horn players are always asked that question!”
    Hargreaves will solo with the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra April 27 at the Crossroads Bible Church. As he described his journey to becoming an accomplished horn player, the answer to that question points to an obvious “yes.”

  • K-Kids, a Kiwanis-sponsored club at Barranca, shows their seedlings for the Los Alamos Youth Food Project. These seedlings will be planted at the LAMS garden site in May during the LAYFP Planting Festival.
