Clark & Kendall’s – Weekend Preview – May 24, 2012

The Los Alamos Daily Post's events calendar webcast, "Clark & Kendall's Weekend Preview." Carol A. Clark and Greg Kendall co-host this weekly program, which previews each upcoming weekend's events scheduled for Los Alamos, White Rock and beyond. To compile the list of events, the Los Alamos Daily Post checks the event calendars found in the right hand sidebar and we sample the posters on the front window at Aspen Copies. We cover events that are of interest to the general public.

Things that didn't make the webcast: (Let us know if we missed something!):

Councilor Fran Berting will read the annual proclamation for Memorial Day at ceremonies held at Guaje Pines Cemetery at 11 a.m. The NCRTD "Blue" busses and our own Atomic City Transit busses won't be in operation, and, there won't be any trash or recycling collected on Monday (if that's your pick up day, put your roll carts at the curb on Wednesday morning instead.) The Aquatic Center is also closed on Monday.
