Sure, you could go out of town and choose a large, impersonal company to decorate your wed- ding or special party event--but what's their incentive to make your wedding look perfect? It's silly to go out of town when you have the award winning talents of certified floral designer Mary- anna Reynolds at your disposal. Maryanna describes herself as a "special event designer", and has worked on numerous wed- dings, parties, and special events like school dances and the Cit- rus Fair Gala. She gets all of her supplies and flowers from San Francisco and Santa Rosa and only buys the very best. She understands how important quality is to her cus- tomers. Maryanna got started in the business 20 years ago when she was an interior decorater. Since then, she took courses at SRJC and got her floral design certification and has been shar- ing her talents with people ever since. Every year she co-ordinates the Bridal Exchange that fea- tures local businesses involved in some way in special events and travel, at the Citrus Fair- grounds. =My main goal when I do the I I DIRECTORY CLOVERI Instant Computerized Worldv4de Reservations for: Airlines Cruises Hotels  Tours- Cars "-','; ",,:, Discounts for Sen ior Travelers -J'. :' TravVideoLa / T.

She wrote the sto- ry at the Cloverdale Autobiogra- phy Writing Workshop held at the Cloverdale Senior Center on Thursdays from 1-3 pro. The class is taught by Scott Reid and is free.

Cloverdale Capers Part II Three of my siblings ran the Perry (Orpheum) Theater, and our family members were ad- mitted free. Susie sold tickets in the front booth, Grace collected them, also acted as usherette,, and Hubert ran the upstairs pro- jector. We saw every movie that came to town. They were silent in the twenties, but when the first talkies were introduced, we felt we had died and gone to heaven. We kids always felt honored when we could sit down in front. The rowdies sat far back in the rear, cat calling and whistling at the least excuse. Everyone ate peanuts, candy and popcorn, throwing wrappers on the floor, which were later swept up by my sister and broth- er, who acted as janitors, with all their other theater duties. Hubert had to go through the mortuary next door to collect the cleaning articles, always keep- ing his eyes averted, never know- ing "what or whom" he might see! After everyone was seated, Grace, sat up front behind a screen, operating the player pi- ano, the music chosen appropri- ately for each movie. One night she allowed two of my young nephews to sit with her. They were good boys until they got bored and became restless. They started bickering and shoving, finally falling off the bench, knocking the screen over, expos- ing them all. Grace was so start- ed and embarrassed she stopped playing and the silent picture went on with no accompaniment. The audience roared with laugh- ter, but Hubert had to stop the projector and they finally just began over, from the beginning. When the Toby Shows came to town, our parents would take us kids, never allowing us to go alone. They were traveling peo- ple who held their shows they carried with them from town to town. Toby was a red headed clown, who was the main attrac- tion, and we children thought him very funny. There were more serious performances by other actors, enjoyed by adults, but not as interesting to us children. These shows were held on prop- erty belonging to Sam Visgart, a livery stable owner and horse trader. His house was located on the West comer of First and Com- mercial Streets, the shows were held close by, on Commercial and the stables were located across the street, approximately where the Veteran's building now stands. Sam always had lots of horses for kids to look at, but they weren't all gentle enough to pet. Dad once told me, "Sam nev- er sells a horse over 'nine' years old. Before nine, you can tell its age by its teeth. After that, for- get it." Dad had bought a "nine" year old horse from Sam, that soon died of old age. Sam also rented out space for carnivals, and one time when a group of "carnies" came, they brought a huge crocodile, with unblinking, cruel eyes and doz- en of babies. She was in a pit so shallow we could have touched her, but there was no danger of our doing so, we were terrified just looking at her. There were concessions where you could win all sorts of prizes. dolls and animals and colorful g as Carnival ware, both are now highly a dime, to win some worth hundreds Inthe miniature golf course the library.

That was usually the t ghost stories to kids would huddle mock fear. We went home tired, with lots of sand clothes, for my mother tend with the next day. There was plenty to us in those days, but in the perfect life we living, we were just average kid today. Mothers often complaint then, as now--' isn't anything to do."
