Celebrate the community’s history Saturday, Sept. 12, at the Los Alamos Historical Society’s second annual Fall Gala.

This year’s gala theme is the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII and will include a delicious three-course dinner catered by the Blue Window Bistro, silent and live auctions, and dancing to the sounds of the Craig Martin Experience in historic Fuller Lodge. Funds raised support the operating budget of the Los Alamos Historical Society and Museum.

This year’s live auction features historic experiences such as a helicopter ride over the Pajarito Plateau, a tour of Ashley Pond’s first ranch school in northeast New Mexico, a tour of the famous Santo Domingo Trading Post during its restoration, and a ride to Bandelier in a Model T.

An exclusive pre-Gala champagne reception, along with the announcement of the 2015 Los Alamos History Award winner, will take place at the Hans Bethe House on Bathtub Row.

Tickets for the Gala are $70, and the Gala plus Bethe House Reception ($140), can be purchased at the Historical Museum or online at www.losalamoshistory.org. Seating is limited! For more information, visit the Los Alamos Historical Museum’s website or call 505.662.6272.

The Los Alamos Historical Society is dedicated to preserving, protecting, and interpreting the history of Los Alamos through the Los Alamos Historical Museum, the Los Alamos Historical Society Archives and Collections, and community educational programs.
