Saturday, July 18 saw more than 25 volunteers from all over the community come together to spruce up a World War II veteran’s yard in Los Alamos. 
 
These volunteers represented organizations such as the American Legion Post 90, the Legion Riders Chapter 19, American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, Police Explorers, JROTC, Elks Lodge, and others who just showed up to help.
 
The sounds of mowers and weed eaters could be heard up and down the block. In a little more than three hours, the entire yard and even the gutters were mowed, trimmed and cleaned up. Three trailers were loaded with yard waste and hauled away. 
 
This is truly a community effort and shows the caring nature of this great community. A heartfelt thank you to all who volunteered some of their Saturday for a great cause.
