The freshmen and other newcomers stepped up and helped accomplish our work goals quickly, the group as a whole was fun to be with and our families were gracious as always.” Lewis likes to point out to the youth that when they arrived on Monday, the family had no home, but by the end of the week, they had a new home because of their efforts.

  • A big thank you for fun in the sun

    Each year around April 22, the nationally recognized day to emphasize caring for the Earth, is celebrated through various activities by Pajarito Environmental Education Center. This year activities included a display at the Betty Ehart Senior Center, an Earth Day speaker and a festival. Each activity was an outstanding success due to the efforts of a large number of volunteers and the support of many sponsors. This letter is to thank all of these volunteers and sponsors and those who attended one of our events this year.

    DOGS
    Chica —One-year-old Chihuahua/Wire-Haired Terrier-mix. Spayed female. What a doll! Small, gentle, housebroken. Good with dogs and kids.
    Salvador (Sal) —Two-year-old neutered male tan Chihuahua-mix. What a sweetie. He is a little frightened right now, but solicits attention. He is housebroken, but has been known to chew a little when left alone. A nice crate would be a good solution.

  • We thank Los Alamos National Bank again for a very generous contribution to the Gift Fund of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.
    LANB’s support allows lower-income children and adults in Los Alamos and surrounding communities to have access to our programs of lessons, exercise and recreation.
    During 2011, recipients of all ages were supported by this program and greatly enjoyed using the Aquatic Center.

  • An opportunity is available Saturday at the 2012 Dog Jog to participate in a $20 reduced fee microchip clinic. Veterinarians from Animal Clinic of Los Alamos and Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital have donated their time and expertise to implant the microchips.
    The fee includes the registration of the microchip to a database that can be read by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the United States.
    No sign is up required ahead of time, just stop by Chamisa Elementary School in White Rock from 9-10:30 am. The clinic is open to the public; participation in the Dog Jog is not required.
    The best reason to have an animal micro chipped is the improved chance that the animal will be reunited with its owner if it becomes lost or stolen.
