A Letter from Community Services It’s summer in Los Alamos... Dear Community, Visitors, and FriendsThe weather is exceptional, and the outdoors are calling. If outdoor recreation is your passion, we hope you enjoy our trails, campground, wildlife, and beautiful views. If you like your outdoor adventures a little closer to town, enjoy a concert, walk the historic trail, take in a round of golf, play volleyball in one of our local parks. For those that feel more comfortable with indoor pursuits, we offer indoor Open Boating at the Aquatic Center, or feel free to drop by the Los Alamos Public Library, located in Los Alamos and White Rock, for a book or enjoy one of the fantastic programs for adults and youth. Also, the Los Alamos Public Library will be hosting its first ever Atomicon, a Los Alamos spin off of a Comicon – that is bound to be fun for ALL ages! Our long-standing Friday night Los Alamos Summer Concert Series kicks-off May 20th—are you ready for the great line-up that is in store, and the summer events that follow? Mark your calendars for the return of in-person events such as: Mud Volleyball, the Triathlon, ScienceFest, Los Alamos County Fair and Rodeo, Tuesdays at the Pond, the Horse Exhibition, and LOTS More! In this guide, you’ll find summer possibilities galore and I am sure you will find something to enjoy as you “Discover LA today”! Sincerely,

Cory Styron Community Services Department Director

Benefits of Water Fitness Aquatic exercise promotes and enhances physical and mental fitness. The water’s unique properties allow the pool to provide an environment for people of all abilities. Buoyancy creates a reduced impact that is easier on joints and water resistance challenges the muscles. The beauty of water is the ability to offer aerobic activity, resistance training and flexibility all at the same time. Water is thicker than air, so muscles get stronger.

Fitness Classes Deep Water Fun & Fitness: Zero impact, comfortably paced class that uses the water’s resistance to improve your fitness, flexibility, range of motion, strength, and balance. Therapy Fun & Fitness: Low impact, warm-water class held in the therapy pool. Includes working on range of motion, toning, stretching and balance. Participants with orthopedic concerns, arthritis, asthma and other conditions have found this class to be beneficial. The maximum class size is 18 students. WaterWorks!: A low impact, but effective water aerobics class designed to improve flexibility, range of motion, strength, muscle tone and cardiovascular endurance while using the resistance of the water to cushion the feet, knees and back. May use equipment including noodles, belts, bands and boards. Water shoes recommended. Aqua Zumba: Splashing, stretching, twisting – even shouting, laughing, hooting, and hollering! Salsa, Merengue, Disco, and more in chest deep water for a great low impact but challenging workout. Integrating the Zumba philosophy with traditional aquatic fitness, Aqua Zumba classes blend it all together into a workout that's cardio-conditioning, and body-toning. Water shoes recommended. Safety Note: All deep-water classes use flotation belts for support. Swimming skills are not necessary. Participants should be comfortable in deep water. If you arrive late or leave class early please include time for an individual warm up and cool down. Students work at own level.

LOS ALAMOS JJAB

Restorative Justice

The Los Alamos JJAB provides youth and their families with programs and services that work to reduce youth risk behaviors, facilitate positive development, and build resiliency. Their focus is on providing prevention, intervention, and diversion programs, by partnering with community organizations to collaborate, leverage, and coordinate resources. All JJAB programs and services are FREE.

This is an approach to justice in which the response is an organized meeting between the victim and the youth offender. This approach aims to provide the offender the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions, to understand the harm they caused, give them an opportunity to redeem themselves, and discourage them from causing further harm. As a victim, this provides an active role in the process.
