LAHA- fellow Los Alamos Recreation Bond Supporters,
We need your help to get the word out. We are down to the final days! We need lots of volunteers to hang door hangers on doors throughout Los Alamos and White Rock over the next two weeks. You don't need to ring door bells, just hang them. They have information so no-one can claim they didn't know about the bond! Kids can help you and you can do it at your own pace, during the day, on the weekend, whenever, as long as we get the word out.
If you are willing and able to help, please respond with your name and email address.
Longview Self Storage, White Rock - 105 Longview Dr.
If you rented equipment for the 2016-2017 season and have not yet returned it, please do so. Please clean your equipment before you return it. If you can't make this session, make arrangements with Chrislynne Bingham at
before Saturday. If you do not return gear, your account will be charged for Summer Rental.
If you need to exchange any equipment you are re-renting, come to this return session, and one of our coaches will fit you with new gear. If you are happy with the gear you currently have, there is no need to attend this session. The summer rental charges will be added to your account.
Two LAHA Executive Board positions are up for election, and the Board is seeking nominations. Anyone may be nominated. The membership votes from the list of candidates, and these Board members serve a 2-year term. Following the election, the five voting Executive Board members meet to decide which positions they will serve during the coming year, i.e., President, VP, Secretary, Treasurer, and Member-at-Large.
The positions require commitment and lots of positive energy to help make the association work. These positions are critical to making the association enriching for the players.
Nominations will be accepted through Monday, May 1, 2017. Self-nomination is preferred. If you are nominating someone else, please verify his or her willingness to serve if elected. Please submit your nomination to the executive committee (
Thank you all for a great hockey season. Without many hard working volunteers LAHA would not be successful. If you see these folks around town, please thank them!! Also, think about next year and how you can help make LAHA even better. We are in need of several volunteers to fill key positions, so please let us know how you would like to help!

Hello Hockey community! LAHA is a strong advocate of Los Alamos County’s Recreation Bond initiative which includes a recreation center housing an indoor multi use arena (indoor ice rink during winter months) and gym space (see link below). We wanted to get some information out on the project and ask for your support. This is an extremely important initiative for LAHA.
The advertising campaign to get the recreation bond passed has just kicked off. Ballots for voting on the bond package will be mailed early in May so time is of the essence. The link below is for the GoFundMe site that has been established to support the bond advertising. All of the money will be spent to buy advertising and develop informational materials such as banners, yard signs, and flyers. Additionally, many residents are volunteering their time to plan and participate in events, knock on doors, and encourage their family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to vote Yes.
100% of your donation will be used to spread the word throughout our community about the projects; the reasons why our community should support it; and how the bond will impact property taxes. Any size donation is welcome and greatly appreciated! LAHA and other organizations will be contributing as well.
We need your support now. Thank you for your interest and contributions!
Please remember, the background screenings can take 2 - 4 business days, and then have to be manually entered on the LOEAHA site. Therefore, should you not see your name on the list after 4 days, please email me directly before running another unnecessary screening.
This part takes a couple of hours, but is required. Remember, you do the initial training with a subsequent 'refresher' course every two years.
