Page 6 - Wednesday, May 7, 1980 Chamber Chatter By VIVIAN WEER WEATHER TODAY: "Pole-ish"... And the Geyserville Chamber certainly brought in the month of May in style, complete with the traditional May pole festivities. ,_.. BOUQUETS: To a reader, Mrs. Ward Hanes who sent a check from Boonville for the Band Fund. We thank you! Bouquets also to Connie Seymour and other boosters who made "A Very Special Evening" very special indeed. ,Connie would like to extend a great big thank you to all who made it: ..'. possible. SHOPPER STOPPER: Prank Rose is still shaking his head over an incident he encountered last week in Healdsburg. It seems the couple with whom he had business apoligized for being late for their appointment, but they had gone to 01overdale to shop. "You live* in Healdsburg and shop in Cloverdale'" asked , Frank. "Oh, yes," they replied..."We would much prefer shopping in Cloverdale because everyone is so friendly." They come once a week for groceries and truly enjoy it. Speaking of merchants, I called a business the other day to see if they had garbage cans. They didn,t, but .quickly suggested two other stores (in Cloverdale). I not only found a garbage can, but it was on sale and the proprietor even delivered it because I was a lady in distress (no truck, see). GOPHER IT: Well, in Chamber Chatter's plea for ideas on how to discourage the gophers in the back yard, we had4he overwhelming response of one. (It'ssolonelyatthetop...) Gallant A| Gambetta stopped in to relate a sure-fire cure for gopher pests. He quickly explains that it is not an idea originating with him, but that it has been handed down through generations. Al says you bury a wine bottle in the gopher hole allowing . about 5 inches of the neck to stick out above the ground. The wind catches in the neck and creates a whistle sound which causes the gopher to go someplace else. Al says the more bottles you use, the fewer rodents will hang around. I guess if you didn't have enough empty bottles,.. you could drink more wine and eventually you may not even care whether you have gophers or not. MES6AGE CENTER: For the lady who called about the Father Fahey. Judge Joseph P. Murphy. Jr., retired Judge Lincoln Mahan, attorney John Shea and Gene Benedetti were among thefriendshonoring Judge V.A. unit visiting Cloverdale, we checked and that service has been discontinued up here at the north pole...Watch out for turtles these days as the big race is on again at the City Park on the 4th of July...Watch for the new look at Dann's Owl Plaza coming soon...If you are a Wednesday reader, don't forget the St. Mary Guild Luncheon and card party today. And yes, it is a benefit for the band. BACK IN THE SADDLE: Just as I ran out of news this week, Adamae Rege called to say that the riding club is planning a trail ride June 21 & 22. This will be the last time for this particular ride until after the dam is finished. It will commence and end at the site about 7 miles out Hot Springs Road. The Dinner will be catered again by Los Robles Lodge and a hot western band will put on the show. Remember, this is for all of you drug store cowboys, too. So lasso that date on your calendar and watch for more on this later. Calendar of Events Wed. May 7th .
