Photos by Bob fsler. I Senior Citizens News By MILDREN ZARUCCHI The October 8 Senior Pot Luck luncheon to honor the ,"Golden Wedding" opened with "Happy Birthday," "Happy Anniversary," and the doxology sung by an present. Rev. Jarrett gave the opening prayer. There were 116 members and guests present. We were met at the door and greeted by Henrietta and Gerry Ruppert. Henrietta was our piano player and a ladies quartet sang beautiful love songs as a salute to the Golden Weds. The following is a list of those 20 couples who have been married 50 or more years: Mr. and Mrs. Harmon Austin, 59; Mr. and Mrs. Peter Ioli, 50; Mr. and Mrs. Nels Jansen, 62; Mr. and Mrs. Paul Cavallo, 60; Mr. and Mrs. Bud Taylor, 57; Mr. and Mrs. Gino Mon- toya, 51; Delmar Michael, 50; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Barron, 55; Mr. and Mrs. Archie Sones, 59; Mrs. and Mrs. Ralph Bower, 50; Mr. and Mrs. John Terso, 50; Mr.. and Mrs. Albert Ot- tohoni, 57; Mr. and Mrs. Milton Jarrett, 53; Mr. and Mrs. Marion Stewart, 54; Mr. and Mrs. Brice Sum- mers, 54; Mr. and ,Mrs. Tom Powers, 50; Mr. and Mrs. Charles Snelgrove, 51; Mr. and Mrs.Vaile Taylor, 51; American Legion Auxiliary William Russell Ledford Unit 293 By DENA GAMBETTA William Russell Ledford Unit 293, American Legion Auxiliary, members have many programs in their organization, but they consider Children and Youth one of the most im- portant programs we have. Children and youth are our future generation, and so th'ough education, health and other programs, perhaps we can contribute a bit, to a better tomorrow. Our unit particularly gives nearly half its funds to Children and Youth, through the Girls State program, educaton scholarship, RIF, Americanism Essay Awards, Poppy Poster Awards, Past President's Scholarship in nursing, and contributing to many youth organizations. During last summer when. our unit manned the refreshment stand at the park, one of the nicest groups to our organization were the sponsors of Little League. This group was so generous in letting our group have an the ice we needed for our snow machine. (It seems that if the ice machine can run regularly, it operates better.) So, to all of Little League, we the auxiliary salute and thank you for your generosity. This week some of the ladies from the auxiliary presented to the little League a check in the amount of $100 to express in a small way our thanks and appreciation. It is indeed a delight to have worked with Little League! Giving leadership in a ver important program in the auxiliary is Luella Lamp- son. She is the chairman in the Leadership program. For many years now te American Legion has had an extensive course for the inen and women which gave the history, purpose and executing the ideals of the American Legion. The auxiliary did not have such a course offered in their branch. On March, 1980, the National American Legion Auxiliary Extension Course became a reality. The course is tailored for all newly elected and appointed auxiliary members, and for an the members. This ex- tension course is geared to benefit everyone in the auxiliary. The enrollment fee is one to three enrollments, $3 each, four or more is $2 each. Several of the local auxiliary members have indicated that they would like to take the course to further their knowledge of the auxiliary. So at our next meeting we will be taking applications and if you are not at the meeting, please contact Barbara Peugh, our secretary, at the City Hall, and she will take your name and we will enroll you. Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Chairman, Theresa Tollini, is asking everyone in the community, and especially the auxiliary members, to please make a contribution of any amount to her before November 1, or send a gift in the value of $5 for the Veterans Christmas Gift Shop. Most of the veterans at a veterans' hospital are noncompensated. They get their care and their family's care, but no extra funds to purchase a Christmas gift for the family. So everyone please be generous, as we are sure that making someone else's Christmas a bit cheerier will also make your own nicer. The District is planning a tree decorating outing at the California Veterans Home in December, as well as an all-day Christmas Party distributing gifts to all, providing a talent show, with a closing evening of homemade cake and coffee with I00 $1 bills as door prizes concluding the evening. If you have never been to such a function, please go, if only once. It is really worth it. Halloween is coming up, and in the future issue of the "Reveille," we will give you tips on how to keep Halloween safe. This year the Department and National Children and .Youth chairmen have set three major concerns in the yquth projects'.' 1) Special Olympics, 2) Reye's Syn- drome, and 3) Drug Abuse prevention. They are asking that all members become involved in these programs in some way by volunteering your services. Elsie Karr, membership chairman, says thank you for her little "busy bee" which she received for being first unit in district to make quota. She says it is because everyone was so prompt in paying their dues that this achievement was made possible!

During the last regular meeting held on Wednesday, October 8, many subjects were discussed, from inviting all. nonmember Vietnam veterans to a dinner and free first year dues to condeming the oil com- panies for dispensing fuel in metric measurements in- tead of the "Good Old American Way," gallons. Ray Gobielle took the first step in forming his choral singing group. He was able to sign up nine Legionnaires accompany the group on the piano. Gobielle will now set' up dates for meetings and practice. This may be the next musical group to travel to Vienna, Oklahoma! Just keep tabs on them, we may all be pleasantly surprised. The fact that the Cioverdale Police Depart- ment is not opening and closing the gate at the cemetery as promised by the city council, was discussed. It was decided that another trip to the city council meeting may be necessary. to use on the weeds at the cemetery and that Bob Thompson has agreed to inform the local coun- cilman. The members voted to purchase an all-weather flag for the King's Valley flag pole if the center would furnish a light on the flag in order that the flag can be allowed to remain on the pole overnight. It was also noted that the city's flag, at the police department, is not lowered at night and has no light on it, apparently the Continued on page i3 Mrs. and Mrs. Herbert Arnold, 50; Mr. and Mrs. Umberto Venturi, 57; Total years of marriages, 1080! The tables were decorated with golden streamers, greenery and mini marigolds, six beautiful varieties of roses were on the main table. The couples wore golden mini mums. Supervisor Nick Esposti was with us, too. The kitchen crew was thanked for their able help, as were the table and chair crew. Thos who decorated tables, were given praise as they were beautiful. We all appreciate their efforts. Financial Savings donated the delicious wedding cake. Viola Herman cut the cake and Dorothy Montoya sang for us. Guests were: Bud & Lenore Taylor, Maxine Allen and Albert and Evelyn Austin, who were charter members of our club, came over from Fort Bragg for the occasion. Sorry Ken, I must have missed you in the shuf- fle, last month! Those who won door prizes were: Mirna Lee, lone Pellegrini, Viola Groves, Harry Zarucchi, Anita Venturi, Verna Bishop (our able kitchen aide) Thresa Ioli, Peter Ioli, Ruth McNeil and Theresa Wenz. Each of the couples told how they met their mate, their courtship and marriage. It was quite interesting, which brings to mind something my mother told me, "How to keep married for a lifetime:" "Never go to bed without kissing and making peace with your loved one." These people who have been married fifty years or more are a good example of the old saying, "Kiss and make up." There traditional Thanksgiving November 12. luck and $1 for !
