Trujillo and Rondea have been selling raffle tickets and getting sponsorships from local businesses
Rondeau is a member of the Los Alamos Fire Department.
“I am a firefighter/paramedic. I decided to be a lifeguard when I was a teenager and I believe it to be a privilege and a gift to provide aid to my community as a firefighter/paramedic,” Rondeau said.
Trujillo works at Los Alamos National Bank.
“I am a commercial loan processer. I find it rewarding to work in the financial industry and am happy to help people who have found themselves in tough times,” she said.
Trujillo grew up in Chimayo and Rondeau in Albuquerque. The couple has been living in Los Alamos for a year and enjoy the access to year-round outdoor activities in town.
It is important to the couple to be role models within the community and both volunteer in Los Alamos.
Rondeau not only protects the community as a firefighter, but also works as a volunteer rescuer and Trujillo volunteers with several local organizations.
