Dear LAVMC Members,
We are off and running for 2022! Our January meeting dinner was provided
by Gina Kopcrak and Kim Iness. The lasagna was amazing ladies! We had two
new members join us, Greg and Rory Baldwin, and we want to extend a warm
welcome to them.
Olga Reed and Orcutt schools sent a thank you letter for our donation to their garden restoration project. We look forward to an update on their improvements.
Kim shared the goal of making the Men’s Club the hub of Los Alamos, once again. Part of making this goal happen is to have more events during the year. To name a few, dances, BBQ’s, Cook Your Owns, and sporting events.
The club's first sporting event of the year is a Superbowl party on Sunday
February 13th, at 2 p.m. There is no charge, and is open to members and non-
members. Bring your own favorite dish for potluck. The bar will be open and the
bbq pits will be lit if you want to use them. All ages are welcome. Come hang out
with your neighbors!
The club clean up day was a huge success! We had way more help than
was expected and accomplished almost the entire ‘to-do’ list. Closets, storage
rooms and cupboards – there is now a sense of organization! The backyard also
received a scrubbing and looks amazing! The goal is to have the club sparkling
and thanks to the following people, we are that much closer!
Kylin Bray, Kasi Maguire, Timm Maguire, David and Susan Sorensen, Dan
and Kim Iness, Deanna Hearth, Gina Kopcrak, Kristy Williams, Zach Perron,
Rory Baldwin, Brandon Bakke, Brad Vidro, Billy King, Barbara Landon, Pete and
Linda Kopcrak, Rob and Stephanie Cooper, Frank and Kim Costa, Susette
Bennett, Shirley Williams, John Traller and Raul.
The next big calendar event is the building fund bingo scheduled for
February 18th. The building fund bingo is just one of the ways we will be raising
money for future projects. Join us on the 18th for some bingo fun… Hot dogs and
nachos will be available to purchase. Pre-sale tickets are $15.00 - at the door
$20.00. Tickets will be available from Shirley, Kim, Kristy, and Sandra before the
event. We are still in need of bake sale items and raffle donations. Contact
