Several Lama artists will have items on display-and for sale-at the annual Yuletide Arts and Crafts Fair at the Civic Center on Civic Plaza Drive. The dates are Saturday and Sunday, December 6 & 7, and the opening hours are from 10 AM to 5 PM.
Peggy Nes will offer hand-printed notecards and Christmas cards. Georgia Gersh will have her collage-cards on sale; and CeCe Dove will have Epicurean baked goods on sale.
At another booth, Lynn Speier will have her original weavings on display. Cheryl Lama is presenting signed prints of her art works. Also on sale will be notecards and postcards of paintings by the late Marylou Reifsnyder.
Several other Lama residents may have items for sale at the two booths.
Julie and Al Sutherland are now taking orders for Christmas wreaths. They also have their traditional assortment of herbal products, smudge sticks and clackers...The juniper balm is not to be missed. Call 586-1657.
Polly Fox is offering her outstanding marbled greeting cards and flower essences. Call 586-1607.
Tree Planting Project
Julia Vasquez is organizing a large-tree planting project. If you are interested in participating, call Julia at 586-0708.
Tree Seed Grants Available
The Lama Community Reconstruction Fund has announced that it is making available grants in the amount of $200 each for the purpose of purchasing tree seed and/or seedlings. Grants are available to Lama residents who lost trees in the Hondo Fire.
To apply for a grant, write a letter to LCRF (HC81, Box 3, Questa) stating the need. Although there is no deadline, we suggest that you respond promptly. Approximately five grants will be available.
US West Foundation Grant
The Neighborhood Association applied for a $10,000 grant from the U. S. West Foundation for the purpose of partially funding a combined Community Center/Fire Station. We are to be notified of success or failure during this first week of December, so we should have the information available at the December 14 meeting.
In an earlier letter, we sent information on the Hantavirus situation in Lama. We purchased and have available rubber gloves, respirators and Clorox that should be used in handling potentially infected mice and their droppings. Give Bill Reifsnyder a call (586-1151) if you need this equipment.
LLNA Board of Directors
The LLNA board welcomes two new members: CeCe Dove and Dylan Trachtman (representing the Lama Foundation). Other Board members are Justin Friedman, Alicia Clyde and Bill Reifsnyder.
Taos County Land Use Regs
Taos County recently adopted new Land Use Regulations, Land Subdivision Regulations and a County Planning and Zoning Plan. This last includes the Neighborhood Vision Statements, Objectives and Action Plans that have been accepted by the County Commission. It is incumbent upon each Neighborhood Association to submit a final draft to the Commission, then present the plan at a hearing of the Commission for final approval.
Lama has finalized its Vision Statement; but still has work pending on Goals and Objectives, and the Action Plan. It is in our interest to finalize these documents and have them accepted by the County.
Copies of these documents can be borrowed for your perusal. Call Bill Reifsnyder, 586-1151.
