Author James Vollbracht, of “Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand, How to Create a Culture that Cares for Kids,” will Skype his way into Los Alamos, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Chamisa Elementary.
The Assets In Action, JJAB and Los Alamos Public Schools event comes after a series of community discussions and group book reads kicked off by community leaders like Heather McClenahan, Charlie Kalogeros Chattan and Ellen Ben-Naim earlier this year.
What would Vollbracht say to those who feel that one person can’t make a difference?
“If we go out of our way to talk to a kid, ask them about their hopes for the future, help them make contacts, it's a life changing experience; not always, but probably most everyone had a coach, choir director, parent, uncle, grandparent, who changed their lives,” he said.
LA MainStreet also is sponsoring the event.
