  • A message from Katie Rountree:  “Each fall I try to put together a Giving Box which I keep in my car at all times. The box contains items that might be needed by the homeless or someone caught in a sudden rainstorm. I like to keep jackets and gloves in the box because as fall approaches often times the homeless are unprepared for the colder weather and I can just give them a jacket and some gloves on the spot. A box of dog treats are also in my Giving Box because many homeless people now have dogs as companions and what dog couldn’t use a little extra treat? I carry umbrellas because so many people don’t have one handy in a sudden rainstorm. If I see some caught in the rain I can just hand one to them. Other items are band aids, extra water and anything else I think someone could use. If you have any of these items that you no longer need, I would greatly appreciate a donation to the Giving Box. You may bring items to the next Women to Women Lunch on Sept. 12th or email me for pick up. Thank you! Katie

The 99th year of this Santa Fe tradition, the Fiesta Melodrama lampoons local politicians and issues all through the lens of an “Old West” style melodrama. A dastardly villain is determined to destroy the delicate decoupage of Santa Fe society and it is up to our hero to save the day. The Fiesta Melodrama is written every year by a team of courageously anonymous writers and is presented as part of the Fiesta de Santa Fe celebration.  Aug. 23–Sept. 9 at the Santa Fe Playhouse, 142 E De Vargas St, 505-988-4262
