More than 60 teachers at 14 schools across Taos County and at the University of New Mexico - Taos use The Taos News in their classrooms each week as part of their curriculum. The newspapers are provided free of charge by The Taos News through Newspapers in Education, a program supported entirely by donations.
It is an important service but one that takes community support. The community has an opportunity to support the program and enjoy a great breakfast at the same time by purchasing a ticket to the Short Stack for a Tall Cause pancake breakfast Saturday (March 3) in Taos to benefit Newspapers in Education. The breakfast takes place from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Tickets are $8.50 each and are available from Taos News staff and from the Taos News office, 226 Albright Street or call 758-2241 to have tickets delivered to you within town limits. "100 percent of the proceeds go to our NIE program," said Chris Baker, long-time publisher of the local, family-owned The Taos News.
The pancake breakfast will be held at St. James Episcopal Church, 208 Camino de Santiago at Gusdorf.
