Alamosa Seniors: Join Alamosa seniors for fun, healthy activities

What an enjoyable time we had last Friday! Attendance was excellent and so was the tea, food, fashion show and fellowship! Thanks so much to Lolly’s Sweet Shop, North River Green House and The Green Spot for donating some really cool door prizes. Thank you Theresa Rudder, Mabel Cotton and Tawney Becker for donating the amazing vintage dresses, hats, jewelry & purses for our special fashion show! And a big thank you to Amaya Garcia-White Buffalo, Abbey Smith, Alyssa Ruybal, Janessa DeHerrera, Mia Garcia and Areana DeHerrera from Centauri Middle School for modeling the items! You all demonstrate that special spirit of volunteerism that we admire and appreciate so much!
