The ladies of the Antelope Valley Women's Club are working hard preparing their annual fundraising event, the bazaar and dinner. The big day is this Sunday with vendors and crafters presenting their wares from noon until 5 p.m. at the Walker Community Center.
While you enjoy shopping, checking out the Mystery White Elephants, bidding on the ever popular Sack Raffle, admiring the beautiful quilt or simply visiting with friends and neighbors, the ladies will be filling the air with the aromas of a delectable meal. Dinner, your choice of roast beef or turkey with all the trimmings, will start serving at 5 p.m. The cost is only $10 for adults and half price for kids 3 to 10 years old. Good times, great food and a traditional community cause... join them.
Across the street, at the Walker Senior Center and in conjunction with the bazaar, the Antelope Valley Artists will have their annual art show. With so many talented artists living in our area, there will be some beautiful works to admire and possibly own.
Antelope Valley Fire District
I received the following from our local firefighting group:
Antelope Valley Fire District is looking for community volunteers to serve on the Five-Year Plan committee. Meetings will begin in mid-November, with the task being to formulate a fire protection plan for the next 5 years. This was done originally in 2005, and within the last three years about 80 percent of that plan has been accomplished. Having a road map keeps us on track and focused.
We now have 18 trained firefighters, updated equipment/apparatus, increased water access within the valley, three stations (Walker, Larson Lane and Topaz) with two 5,000-gallon water tanks and a structured training program that includes interaction with surrounding fire departments, medics and sheriff's department.
Please feel free to stop by and see the progress on the new station at 1166 Larson Lane in Coleville. We need your input and support as we move forward. Contact Dave Robbins at (530) 495-1802.
With all the disruption of the construction at the schools, the library hours changed a few times. They are now Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and 3-7 p.m. Tuesday hours are 9:30-11:45 a.m., 12:30-1:45 p.m., and 3-7 p.m. Saturdays are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Also, remember that the library's free services include public access computers with high-speed Internet connection, used book sale and exchange, magazines, newspapers, and much more. Drop by and visit the friendly staff.
High school sports
The football team will be playing against Wells in the Northern 1A playoffs this Saturday at Coleville High School, 1 p.m. The last time they played each other, Coleville won by a score of 54-18. We hope they can do it again and move on in the playoffs.
The volleyball team is in the Northern 1A tourney, with a game against Austin this Friday. The girls have also had a banner year, so we wish them lots of luck.
