Aspen Party at Ski Hill
Join Pajarito Environmental Education Center from 1-4 p.m. Sunday for an Aspen Party. The Pajarito Mountain Ski Lodge deck area will be filled with activities and things to explore. The party is free to members and the cost for non-members is $10 per family. Families can get ready for the colder months by making nature-themed crafts and investigating life in the fall leaves. Make bird feeders, corn husk flowers or recycled notebooks. Many holidays are fast approaching and who knows, attendees might take home some hand made gifts or get some ideas for Halloween costumes. For more information, visit PajaritoEEC.org, call 662-0460 or email Programs@PajaritoEEC.org.

LASO concert to honor Daniel Pearl
In 2002, young Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and murdered while pursuing a story in Pakistan. Pearl also happened to be a violinist who played in a number of bands and musical groups and often took his violin and mandolin with him when he traveled.
Following his murder, his family and friends established the Daniel Pearl Foundation to carry on his legacy and to use the power of music to “promote tolerance and inspire respect for differences.”  The Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra is part of that group. The  Oct. 5 concert is among the performances being given in October to honor Daniel Pearl and the values he represented. The concert will be at the Crossroads Bible Church. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and tickets ($15 for adults; students and children free) will be sold there. The concert begins at 7 p.m.
