SAN News:

Thirty volunteers are still needed to chaperone the community-sponsored, all-night senior graduation celebration known as SAN (Senior Appreciation Night) for shifts that begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 31.

SAN was created as a fun, safe alternative to dangerous celebrations for graduates. The event is in its 30th year and typically serves 350 students. 

Volunteers are needed to work a two to three hour shift at the Youth Activity Center, to chaperone a late night carnival and movies from 12-3 a.m. Volunteers may email Diana Martinez at, or call 505.662.3100.

SAN is sponsored by the Los Alamos County Recreation Department, The Youth Activity Center, The Family YMCA, DWI Planning Council, Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos, Los Alamos Public Schools, Atomic City Transit, First United Methodist Church, and some 40 other organizations and local businesses.
