Members and friends were surprised at the end of the ceremonies by the sound of marching feet and the blare of bugles and booming drums as the Santa Rosa Theodore Roosevelt Post 21 Drum and Bugle Corps made their entrance. Comwjmder Joe Anello had arranged for their surprise performance which was loud and excellent and certainly livened up the audience for a, happy ending to the ceremonies portion of the evening. The Drum and Bugle Corps then led the way to the refreshments - a supper of salads, cold meats, french bread, relishes, wine, coffee, cake and the bar. The opening ceremonies started at 7 p.m. with Commander Joe Anello and President Theresa Tollini welcoming members and guests.

Mayor Domenichelli spoke briefly to the assemblage and complimented the Post and Auxiliaiy on their activities and support of the com- munity.

By JAN FREEMAN Yesterday, June 11, the :Senior Citizens Group invited :some of our men who are fathers to come to their ,Father's Day pot-luck at the Veteran's Memorial building. We graciously accepted, of course, and 3 of our men, :Victor Zimmerman, Philip Fortune, and Whitney Greene, along with myself, 'Mary Johnson from the business office and Gina Colin, my 9 year old Orange aide, ate heartily some of the best food in town. As Mary said later, "Those ladles have been cooking for a lot of years and you KNOW you're going to have a delicious meal!" Roses were given to the oldest fathers and Victor won - hands down because he is 88! Our otther two gentlemen' were older than the others also. Philip is 87 and Whitney is 80. The Senior Citizens are a marvelous group of people that support one another and encourage each other to keep on keeping on. Our society says, "You're too old, sorry but we can't use you anymore." But there are reams of knowledge being shamefully wasted in our nation because of forced retirement and a miscon- ceived idea that when a person reaches 65, he ,has outlived his usefulness. But I know better! Almost allof my volunteers are 60 plus and the oldest, Ruth Godden, is 85, The next oldest is Mil Allen, who is 83 and just retired as Bingo Chairman! The volunteers of Manzanita are busy in so many other activities that they have no time to sit at home and feel useless. Cloverdale has the most active Senior Citizen volunteers I've ever seen. I love every one of them and appreciate them greatly! Almost all of them belong to the Senior Citizen's group and many of those have been friends with the residents of the Manor for years. Victor had so many friends who come over and say hello, you'd have thought it was old home week! I had such a good time just watching the ladles getting everything ready and the men visiting, greeting, and making everyone feel welcome. Rachel Garrison was in charge of the gathering and she does a grand job. She and her husband Chuck have been residents of Cloverdale for about 5 years and settled right in like they had been here all their lives. We're really glad for peolde like this who don't sit ai'ound and "vegetate", but pitch in and give a hand where it's needed. Well, I could go on and on, but time and space don't permit. God bless all of you Senior Citizens, and I want you to know that you're on the top of my list of favorite people! Thanks again for having us.
