Letter to the Editor: Rotary Expresses Gratitude
By Linda Hull, president
Rotary Club of Los Alamos
The Rotary Club of Los Alamos would like to thank the community for its generous support of our recent flower bulbs fund-raiser to support our annual end-of-year financial awards to Los Alamos High School seniors.
Through the hard work of a dedicated Club committee and the interest of our many customers, we also collected numerous donations of bulbs purchased for the new LAHS Memorial Garden, which is being designed and built through collaborations among our Rotary Club, Los Alamos Public Schools, Oasis Landscape, and Los Alamos Landscaping.
With several hundred bulbs purchased specifically for the Memorial Garden, it will be resplendent in springtime with red tulips, pink tulips and daffodils. (The garden is now under construction on the LAHS campus between the library and gym complex, close to Diamond Drive.)
Our note of appreciation would not be complete without thanking Los Alamos National Bank, CB FOX, and Dixie Girl Restaurant for providing space for us on several occasions to conduct our sales; a special thank-you also goes to Fuller Lodge Art Center and Crossroads Bible Church for giving us outdoor space during the recent arts and crafts fair held at the church to benefit the art center.
In addition to the many members of Rotary who purchased bulbs for the LAHS Memorial Garden and those who donated anonymously, the Rotary Club would also like to thank these residents who contributed: Don and Sandra Tolmie; Jana Beery; Claudia and Rob Hilko; Ann Perkins; Chris Judson; Robyn and Anthony Ladino; Candee and Rick Haskins; Bonnie Farman; Pat Casados; Bettina Reardon; Anthony Puckett; Lee D’Anna; Tom Lance; Krista Henson; Anne Nobile: Sarah Kelly; Wilette Wehner; Tinka Gammel; Elizabeth Walker; Elaine Jacobs; Elizabeth-Sharon Fung; Judith DeHaven; Shelly Joseph; the Berning Family; the Nash Family; Pam Sutton; and Nancy Bartlit.
Again, many thanks to all who have helped bring springtime colors to the LAHS campus, as well as financial recognition to its graduating seniors.
If you are interested in purchasing red tulips or pink tulips for your garden or would like to make a purchase toward the LAHS Memorial Garden, please contact me at 662-7950. We are grateful for all support.
