Calvary News:

Calvary Los Alamos has hosted a Pumpkin Patch each October for more than 10 years but do to the second wave of COVID-19 have decided that it is not feasible to host it this year.

Calvary had thought of doing a “drive-thru” event but felt that even had too high of a risk. 

The congregation is very saddened by this turn of events and hopes that all of the precious families that have come yearly will understand this decision.

There was much hope and planning
