Lunch with a Leader

General Information

Lunch with a Leader is a monthly program featuring Los Alamos County leaders. The programs are normally scheduled at 11:40 a.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, on the top floor of Mesa Public Library, with catered lunch. The public is cordially invited to attend. It is not necessary to order lunch. (Note that the December 2017 Lunch with a Leader will be held a week earlier - on December 12th. But sure to put your lunch order in by December 9th)

The catered lunch must be pre-ordered. The total cost is $10, including tax and gratuity. Download the menu and send your order to Karyl Ann Armbruster or call her at 661-6605 by the Sunday evening preceding the lunch date. You can just write out what you want to order rather than trying to fill out the form. (EXAMPLE: salad, 1/2 turkey with cheddar on sourdough with avocado.) If you do not hear back from Karyl Ann that she got your order, please send it again or call.

June 19 Lunch with a Leader

Bill Hargraves will be this month's speaker for Lunch with a Leader. His topic will be the proposed charter school - Polaris.

Hargraves will explain why he and his colleagues believe it is important to provide an alternative way of learning for children, and how the proposed charter school will be different from traditional schools. Hargraves is one of a core group of five people who came up with the idea and has been working diligently to write the application to submit for approval.

Charter schools must be authorized by either the local school district or by the state. Community members and teachers have been attending the full-day workshops presented by the Charter School Division of the New Mexico Public Education Department.
