Wnters:Ma a a a a a The Night Writers of Cloverdale will present a reading of original works on Friday evening, May 1, at 7 p.m. at the Cloverdale Center for the Arts, 105 First Street. The theme for this first day of May reading is May Day! May Day! May Day!, in recognition that a watershed event, or a time of crisis or conflict, can deeply influence or change a life. It remains to be seen how each author will interpret the theme. The writers will host a meet-and-greet after our program in which the public will have an opportunity to talk with the authors. Light refreshments, provided by the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, will be served, and there is no charge to attend. The Night Writers is affiliated with the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, and found its name in the fact that most of the writers must work day jobs to support their writing habit. The group has been meeting for monthly workshops since November, 2006, and held its first reading in conjunction with the Boulevard of the Arts celebration in May of 2007. The writers, now eight in number, have eclectic tastes in literature, authoring works of poetry, fiction, memoir and essay. - Louise Young Swing Dance lessons presented In preparation for this year's Friday Night Live Concert series Swing Dance Lessons are being offered at the Cloverdale Center for the Arts/First Street Gallery every Wednesday evening during the month of May.

By Marge Gray Do you know the word "frugal"? The dic- tionary defines it as "sparing, thrifty, eco- nomical, meager." I really like the sound of that word. In this day and age with our economy such as it is, we all need to learn to be frugal. And how do we do that? I guess a lot of us are frugal by recycling everything we can so that it can be made into something else economi- cally. Some of us are Haiku by Jim Gray thrifty by having a vegetable garden Nature gave us hands and fruit trees and sharing the produce and knowing how we'd with friends, and canning and making use them jam with that produce, made them washable. That old phrase "waste not, want not" comes to mind with the word A sip of wine sparing. So I'm going to try to be fru- a nibble of nuts gal. Will you? a twiddle of toes.
