On July 1, the Rotary Club of Los Alamos begins its new year, 2015-16, and will kick off the month with two events over the 4th of July weekend.
On Independence Day, we cordially invite the community to attend the naturalization ceremony at Bandelier National Monument. The program, which bestows American citizenship on qualified applicants, begins at 11 a.m. behind the main building. As one of its sustaining principles, Rotary promotes international peace and good will and is pleased to provide refreshments for this meaningful event.
On Sunday, July 5, we look forward to serving you a Cowboy Pancake Breakfast at the Posse Lodge, 650 North Mesa Road. This all-you-can-eat breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, coffee, and juice is only $7 for adults and $4 for children under10. We are grateful to the members of the Sheriff’s Posse who make it possible for our Club to raise money to benefit our many service projects. This Sunday’s funds will support New Generations, our varied and vibrant youth programs, including:
- Inbound and outbound student exchanges;
- Week-long leadership camps for high school students;
- Essay competitions for 8th graders; and
- Support for GED students at UNM-LA.
As a sneak peek, stay tuned for our July 25 ¡Fiesta Los Alamos!, a lively evening at Fuller Lodge, catered by Blue Window, with mariachis and activities for children and adults. This event is sponsored by STARS (Service To All Rotary Satellite), the branch of our Club that meets evenings to accommodate work schedules. Fiesta funds will help provide overnight lodging for parents in Juarez who must now sleep on the streets while their children are hospitalized nearby.
Please celebrate the Rotary ‘New Year’ with us beginning this weekend!
