Lunch with a Leader

General Information

Lunch with a Leader is a monthly program featuring Los Alamos County leaders. The programs are normally scheduled at 11:40 a.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, on the top floor of Mesa Public Library, with catered lunch. The public is cordially invited to attend. It is not necessary to order lunch.

The catered lunch must be pre-ordered. The total cost is $10, including tax and gratuity. Download the menu and send your order to Karyl Ann Armbruster or call her at 661-6605 by the Sunday evening preceding the lunch date. You can just write out what you want to order rather than trying to fill out the form. (EXAMPLE: salad, 1/2 turkey with cheddar on sourdough with avocado.) If you do not hear back from Karyl Ann that she got your order, please send it again or call.
