Assets In Action: Family fun activities near the Fourth

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, we look ahead to some fun community events.
Once again, Time Out Pizzeria in White Rock will host some Assets and community building fun with a Minute to Win It.
Come spend an inexpensive night supporting the Assets program by playing games and building relationships on July 1. The fun begins at 6:30 p.m., so bring a quarter or two, a big smile and little or no skill.
Come buy an ice cream cone, or milkshake and burn those calories with some games for an hour or so away from the television.
Then we arrive at the Fourth of July!
If you don’t do anything else, find a service man or woman and thank them for their service. Past, present, or someone about to leave for basic, thank them for the sacrifice they make so you can live free.
If you don’t know someone in the service, post something positive of Facebook or Twitter and praise them all.
If you plan to spend the day in Los Alamos, head on down to the festivities at the Overlook.
It doesn’t matter if the fireworks fly or not, every Kiwanian you know will be donating countless hours to making a family friendly fun fest for all.
This single event is one that funds so many community projects and scholarships.
You don’t even have to stay until dark, but come make your contribution to the work of so many good people in our community.
Steve Boerigter, Don Casperson, Linda Daly, Kristy Ortega, Morrie Pongratz, Sharon Stover and so many many more. I honestly wish I could name them all.
If you can’t make the event, try and send a few dollars their way, to make ends meet and support their great deeds of daring do.
Have a great fourth and be safe!

Assets In Action is a community-building program of the JJAB and the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.
