The event features music, food, dancing and much more to raise money for the annual Project Grad, the night graduating Cloverdale High School seniors have an all- night party at the Cloverdale Citrus Fairgrounds with thousands of dol- lars in entertainment, food and prizes. The Rotary Club is donating 100 percent of the fiesta proceeds to the June 8 student event. Tickets are now on sale at $15 each for the food portion of the May 5 plaza party. Food service will run from 5 to 7 p.m. The cooking crew is headed by Jimmy D, this year's winner of the "Spirit of Sonoma Award" present- ed by the Sonoma County Economic Development Board. Also behind the grill will be Will Jopson, Cloverdale's favorite "hardware guy." Homemade desserts will be sold by members of the Cloverdale High School Interact Club, Rotary's teen affiliate (desserts not included in the meal ticket). Beer is donated by Columbia Distributing, and wine as well as soft drinks will be available. Beverages will be on sale from 5 to 9 p.m. Tickets are available at Cloverdale Eagle Tech Collision and Towing and The Mail Center and from Cloverdale High School seniors and Cloverdale Rotary Club members. Not coming to dinner? Music starts a little after 6:30 p.m. with a great cover band, "Rock on a Roll" featuring favorites from the '60s, '70s and '80s. Admission to the music portion is free. Project Grad is a celebration for graduating seniors and a fabulous send-off party planned and spon- sored by Cloverdale parents and the local community. This alcohol and drug-free cele- bration lasts from just after the graduation ceremony until 4 the next morning. Every year most of the graduat- ing class attends this all-night party that serves the dual purpose of keeping students safe and off the streets after graduation and honor- ing their graduation with a night of activities, food, entertainment and many special memories.

Sons of American Legion and Lions Club begin construction The Sons of the American Legion in cooperation with the Cloverdale Lion's Club have begun the con- struction of a 22-foot extension to the Cloverdale veterans memorial at the Cloverdale cemetery.
