I want to extend my thanks to everyone in the Los Alamos community who helped me host a local Geocaching event this past Saturday.
The event was held at the Coffee House Cafe. The staff did a wonderful job with our crowd. Everyone raved about the food, coffee and accommodations. The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce put together welcome bags with useful local information.
This was the first time in Los Alamos for many of the geocachers; others said they have not been on the Hill in years. The information pack contained maps, lists of shops/dining, and information on the Historic Walking Tour and other local sites. They were appreciated and used immediately. Thanks also goes to Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Community Programs Office for LANL 70th Anniversary pins and lanyards that were added to the welcome packs.
Lastly, a big thanks to Craig Martin, the County’s Open Space Specialist for new trail maps hot off the press. Many geocaches are located on the trails around town so people really appreciated having the latest maps. I heard many, many positive comments about Los Alamos at the event and since. The event brought 20 people to town, mainly from Albuquerque, Denver and Santa Fe.
Thank you for helping me show off our town.
