As one of the country’s oldest art colonies in the United States, Taos is recognizing the 100th anniversary of the formation of Taos Society of Artists with celebrations on July 15, which falls between the 30th annual Taos Pueblo Pow Wow and the Spanish celebration of Fiestas de Taos, and throughout the year. Other major milestones include the 400th anniversary of Taos Plaza; 300th anniversary of La Lovata Acequia, a system of hand-dug ditches that irrigates the lush Taos valley; 200th anniversary of San Francisco de Asis Church; 60th ski season at Taos Ski Valley; and 50th anni- versary of the Rio Grande Bridge, one of the highest bridges in the United States.

This past October, the world lost a business and philanthropic giant with the passing of Paul Allen. Here in the Northwest, his absence will be deeply felt. Among his many achievements, Allen co-founded Microsoft; founded Vulcan Inc., Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, Allen Institute for Brain Sciences, and Allen Institute for Cell Science; and was owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers. There doesn’t seem to be an industry that he hasn’t touched, expanded and improved, including the meetings and events industry, particularly in the Seattle area.
