Page 4 - Wednesday, March 12, 1980 Communi Li By Nobody in Particular TRIBUTE in FRIENDSHIP Three cheers for the Geyserville High School Student Body ,who sent a donation to the C.H.S. Band Fund last week. It was indeed a tribute in friendship between two high schools and the outstanding offer will no doubt extend ifself far beyond the Vienna trip. These young people deserve to be applauded for their in- telligent recognition of worthwhile values. Cloverdale is buzzing with appreciation and want the Geyserville students to know they've earned a great big Gold Star! Hurray for Geyserville! ! ! BERNIE ANDBARBARA Bernie and Barbara (Pick's Drive In) are planning a fund raiser for the Band just as soon as the weather permits. They will open the Drive-In on one of their days off (thats, day off, folks ! ) and give all profits to the Band. We'll expect to see the whole high school out for lunch that day! Bernie has another "good thing" going. Stop by the Drive- In and ask how you might help him..help the Band. CLOVERDALECOFFEESHOP Phyliss Schmidt (formerly Mat's Cafe) has been racking her brain to find a way to help too. She is thinking of having a "day" for the Band just as soon as the new banquet room is completed. Will let you know more later! FORTBRAGG Friends from Fort Bragg heard about the Band over Channel 7 news and made the trip down for the Ravioli Feed because they wanted to help. My son, the fireman, sold them his tickets. I know they'll spread the good word to our home town folk in Fort Bragg. (We've already received donations from there!) Mr. & Mrs. M.B. Carr...thank you for coming! GOOD KIDS If you want to know what some of the Band kids are doing...stop by Cann's and watch them smash aluminum cans on Saturday morning. Knee deep...it takes several hours. Between smashing and practice they are selling soap! CLOVERDALE BOWL Not sure about the other nights, but the Thursday Night Bowling League has been regularly donating money to the Band. Carol Pasquini reports she is banking in about $25 per week. Good girl, Carol! Say thanks to the guys and gals for us,. please. FASHION FLAIR Carol Richards has donated a handmade Macrame hanger which is on display at the beauty shop. The ingenuity of the "Community of Volunteers" is also on display...all around the town. People are coming up with great ideas on ways and means to make money for the kids and Mr. C. RUSS KINZEY TREES We saw Dr. & Mrs. Tony Iriquetti look longingly at those beautiful White Fir trees Russ had on display at. the Winnie Ravioli Feed....and then I saw him buying tickets. He said they were so beautiful he wanted them even though he didn't have enough room on his land for them. WASHINGTON SCHOOL The Junior High is planning a magazine subscription drive  soon. Mr. Kasserman said the kids are going to give a big part of their profits to the Band! Doing this for the Band is a very unselfish act on the part of these students. Monies from Junior High fund raisers are important to these kids and committments in advance go to projects of their own such as...graduation. GRAMMER SCHOOL Not only did Jefferson School offer a donation but they are participating in the aluminum Can drive. These children are Kindergarten thru Grade Three. Beautiful! Hope their *'Friendship Balloons" reach far and touch many. Continued on page I0 Business of the Week FIND THIS BUSINESS ON YOUR WHITE & GREEN PHONE BOOK COVER. Francis Des Lauriers donates painting to raise money for band Francis O. Des Lauriers of Palomino Lakes, one of California's outstanding artists, has donated one of his beautiful water colors to benefit the Cloverdale High School Band trip to Vienna. The Band committee has not yet decided whether to have an auction or a drawing or to accept bids, they said, but it will be used to its best advantage for the band. According to reports the estimated value of the painting is approximately $,500. When interviewed, Mr. Des Lauriers stated, "Music is one of the Arts that I am interested in, also, with the adverse reputation of so many high school students today, it is refreshing to see the dedication of these young Cloverdale High School students. Their response to Steve Connolly is a visible indication of dicipline which proves to me that the young need inspired leadership." Francis- Des Lauriers has painted most of his life as a serious avocation. He has studied at the Walker Art Institute of Minneapolis, as well as the University of Minnesota. Upon his retirement from business he has taken up painting as a full-time occupation con- centrating on watercolor. For the past two years he studied with Dick Phillips, prominent awardwinning southwestern watercolor artist of Scottsdale, Arizona. He is currently furthering his studies with Dr. Marjorie Stevens, A.W.S., prominent San Francisco painter and winner of over seventy-five awards.

Citrus Squares, Square Dance Club news By DENA GAMBETTA At last Monday night's square dance lesson, the Citrus Squares held a sort of a party night, since it was also graduation night for thirty- three Citrus Square mem- bers, with each one receiving a diploma having attended the College of DO Si DOs and Allemande Lefts and having completed the prescribed courses in Fun L, Friendliness and- Good Fellowship. rPhe diploma is for ori,of Square Dancing. At the same tim e , all birthdays in March were celebrated. Cookies and coffee and soft drinks were served. We would again like to invite the public to attend the Beginners Square Dance night on March 17th, at 7:30 p.m., at Jefferson School. It is a great exerciser, as well as fun entertainment. All are invited to come and try the art of square dancing. Visitors as well as spectators are always welcome. If you once come you won't be able (o keep your feet from tap- ping as the music is most inviting. Please come and ha ve fun. At least give it a try. The cost of the three hour class is as little as $2, and where else can you go for that small sum, and have as much fun and good comradeship. We have a very competent instructor and caller, who has been calling for the past six years. She started calling when she and her husband were on Guam overseas, and they lost their caller, and their group loved square dancing so much, that she bought records, and learned to call from the record music. She has called in Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Milwaukee, Klamath Falls, Arizona, New Mexico, and many other places throughout the United States. Most callerS when calling, a understand !
