Page 10 - Wednesday, May 7, 1980 American Legion Auxiliary By DENA GAMBETTA This is the second year that Claudia Reck is giving leadership to a most im- portant program of William Russell Ledford Unit 293, American Legion Auxiliary, which is the Poppy Program. The Poppy program is a year round program but in April and May is the culmination of the whole program. "Early in September the Poppy cans, I.D. cards and other Poppy necessities must be ordered. Also the local unit pur- chases each year 1050 poppies, which are made by the Veterans at the California Veterans Home. These poppies cost the Auxiliary five cents a piece, which covers the materials in making the poppy. The hand: made poppy consists of four red petals, with a green and black stamin, and a green wire stem, wrapped with green paper. These poppies are made at the Poppy Production shop, and the men gel a remuneration for each poppy made. Most of the men at the California Veterans Home get little or no monetary funds, except their care and their families, and so making the little poppy, gives the veteran a chance to make a few extra dollars, and the making of the poppy is excellent moral builder and very theraputic Early in January the Poppy Chairman takes Poppy Poster rules into the schools, and then the students work on their posters until April. In April they are picked up and judged. In the Poppy Poster Contest there are several groups. Group I, 4th and 5th grades, Group II, 6th and 7th grades, Group III, 8th and 9th grades, and Group IV, 10th, llth and 12th grades. This year in group I, 4th and 5th grades, we had 71 poppy poster entries, and the 1st prize winner went to Wilson Quijang $5; 2. Rohyn Kramer $4; Sara Larson, $3; Frank Ramos $2 and Richard Pinchard Jr. $1. In Group II, 6th and 7th grades, 1st went to Gary Bate $7; 2. Loretta Shepherd $6; 3rd Kata Zagorites $5; 4. Kristi Wirt $4; 5. Tina Baumgardner $3. "All of these students also received citations. On Thursday of last week these prizes were awarded at an assembly at Washington School, at which time Tammy Kaserman, Miss Western Poppy helped with the presentation by handing out the awards. Present of course was our fantastic chairman Claudia Reck, and Joe Anello Commander of the Post, who contributed funds towards the prize money. We congratulate the students, and especially thank Claud Williams, principal for always being so gracious in allowing this extra-curricula into the school throughout the years. Very special thanks go to the teachers of these students who encourage them to enter the contest. It is dedicated teachers like these that inspire the students to participate. The first prize winners will be sent off to district for further judging. We hope that both first prize winners will be winners on district level. Poppy Days are designated to be May 16th and 17th, so why not wear a poppy for those who gave their all for us, so that we can continue to help the living veterans and their families. Last Thursday, Donna Wooldridge, National Security Chairman con- ducted a first in Cloverdale, which was the Cancer Detection Clinic. The Clinic was held at the Veterans Memorial Building from four until eight in the evening, with hostesses, refreshments of homemade cookies and coffee, with a film, and with nurses and doctors being present to answer questions. All went very smoothly, and we are happy to announce that nearly sixty-five persons came and picked up their self-do-it packet out of one hundred packets that the auxiliary had purchased. The remainder of the packets will be given to the doctors offices. We felt it was a successful venture and hope to repeat the clinic again next year. If you missed this clinic, why not contact Donna, and be on the list for the next Clinic. "The Poppy of Sacrifice" Little Flow'r red, Proudly lift your head. You're the symbol of Heroes Brave Each poppy fair is for a boy over there Made by others whose lives were saved Let us help them live, Let us gladly give for the Poppy Sacrifice. So small, so red a remem- brance of the dead From boys who have paid the price for the Poppy sacrifice. Elsie Karr, Membership Chairman is reporting 22 paid up members. Come on all you members, please send your dues to Elsie today before you forget. Next Unit meeting will be on May 14th. Last meeting of this, year. Please try to come to express thanks to our president! Citrus Squares By WES CROSS New square dancers, who are attending the Citrus Squares beginners class Mondays at Jefferson school are: Joy Cunningham, Gudrun and Nick .Sabanovich, Jenny Frederick, Liz Pearson, Nicole Tobener, La Von Ball, Eva Arreguln, Walter Spain, Tim Wilson, Sandi Smith and John Cranford. The new square dancers have learned a few basic steps and after only a few weeks instruction can "do sa do", "aleman left", "circle right", "promenade", "weave the ring", "right and left thru", "curtesy turn", "Pass through", "go around one and form a line". Many of these basic steps can be executed from a large circle of alternating boys and girls, and from two parallel op- posing lines. The large circle concept dates back to folk dances and barn dances of a century ago, when neighbors came together for most any reason to potluck together, and then shove the tables and ch@irs back to the edge of the room, and dance. These were always family affairs, and the little children who became sleepy after awhile, would crawl on to a heap of the family's coats and sleep while their older brothers and sisters, and morn and dad, and aunts and,uncles would enthusiastically dance until the early morning hours. It wasn't unusual for the small fry to fall asleep at the country school house, late at night and wake up in the morning in their own beds, having slept right through the dance and transport home by buckboard. The two parallel lines of opposing dancers dancing to Roy Alexander returns from training operations in South Atlantic ,, a com- Navy Electronics Technician 1st Class Roy H.

He is a crewmember aboard the amphibious assault ship UUS Nassau homeported in Norfolk, Va. The naval maneuvers lasted more than a month and demonstrated the United States' commitment to, and interest in, the South Atlantic and Caribbean Sea areas. He and his fellow shipmates had the opportunity to visit the namesake city of the ship, Nassau, in the Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic. While in Nassau, more than 40,00O people toured the ship. Static and operational displays of equipment were presented. The Atlantic Fleet Band conducted a concert for 4,000 people, and several Marines visited, Fort Mon- tague the site of the first amphibious assault by the U.S. Marine Corps in 1176. The Nassau is 820 feet long and carries a crew of 800. Primarily designed for amphibious operations, it has the capability to embark, deploy and land a fully- equipped Marine battalion landing team by helicopter, many of these basic steps, was popular in the 1700-1800 AD era fancy parties in the United States and abroad. The men were resplendent in their lace and colorful breeches and knee length hose and the ladies wore their beautiful gowns sweeping to the floor at the bottom and exposing bare arms, and elaborate hairdos above. "Do sa dos" and "aleman lefts" or "swing your part- ners" in this tmusphere, were elaborately executed and were performed so elegantly that it is difficult to believe that the square dance of today is related to these splendid occasions. Workshops are held every Monday night at the Jef- ferson School all purpose room. Beginners class is 7 - 8:30 p.m. Advanced workshop is from 8:30 - 10 p.m. The public is invited to join or watch.
