  • Assets in Action: Make a difference on Wednesday

    Did you know that Wednesday is Nelson Mandela Day? You can learn more about the worldwide event at nelsonmandeladay.org, but I will provide a nutshell version.
    July 18 is the South African leader’s birthday. An organization created in his name started an annual event on his birthday.
    It is believed that since he dedicated 67 years of service to his community, his country and the world, individuals should try to donate six to seven hours, to make a difference.
    Hopefully you know by now that the local assets motto is, “Take a Second, Make a Difference,” and this week, I’d like to know how you do it.

  • Troop 22 completes Philmont Cavalcade

    Troop 22 of Los Alamos has completed the cavalcade at the Philmont high-adventure camp in Cimarron, N.M.
    Eleven boys, ages 14-16 and three adults spent eight days riding horseback through the rugged mountains of northeastern New Mexico near the Valle Vidal.  
    Starting at base camp, the group was often up at 5 a.m., saddling and packing horses for the day’s ride. They rode to a different camp each day, participating in activities such as challenge events, rock climbing, spar pole scaling, hiking Mount Baldy and finally, a competitive rodeo on the last day.
    They also learned the nuances of horse personalities.  Additionally, many of the scouts overcame self-doubt and bravery in both the handling of horses and activities.
