  • Sponsor a family

    The Alpha Zeta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi adopts a family every year through the Los Alamos school system.  They solicit the school counselors to identify needy LA families and give them an Adopt a Family “application.”
    Beta Sigma Phi then goes out in the community and asks other families and businesses to sponsor the families. The sponsors provide each member of the family with one gift (listed on the application) and a Smith’s giftcard (in the amount of $25 per family member) to buy food for a Christmas dinner.

  • Three of the “Poodles” in the Ice Follies Extravaganza, at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center, 3221 Rodeo Road, Santa Fe are from Los Alamos.
    Johanna Story is a fifth grader at Mountain Elementary.  Laney Newton, 8, is in third grade at Aspen School and Helen Liu attends sixth grade at Canyonsito Montessori  School.

  • In an effort to raise money for needy families in Los Alamos, the Salvation Army is seeking volunteers who want to help by being bell ringers.
    Bert Dennis and Tom Marshall have volunteered as bell ringers and Kevin Kennedy has been busy organizing the bell ringers at Smith’s Food and Drug Center in White Rock, but more help is needed.
    Betty Ehart Senior Center Retired and Senior Volunteer Program Director Irene Powell has been working on getting volunteers for the Smith’s on the Hill.  

  • The Holidays are a time for holiday music and that is exactly what the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra will present in its annual Christmas Concert at
    7 p.m. Dec. 10 in the Crossroads Bible Church.
    The program will include standard favorites such as, “White Christmas,” “Sheep May Safely Graze,” and “Sleigh Ride.”

  • In some towns, the sound of Christmas carols being sung on your doorstep during the holiday season is commonplace. Typically, however, it’s not a tradition that Los Alamos residents engage in, unless of course, they are part of the congregation of Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.

  • What began as a woman’s desire to share her love of animals has since turned into a Los Alamos holiday tradition.
    Stede Barber, the organizer of the Mesa Rider’s Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program, had the idea to light up the stables for the holiday season.
    She wanted people in the community to be aware of, and appreciate, the animals at the stables, so she organized the first two events, which were successful.

  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    Every cat only $35 with an extended two-for-one sale.
