Local church really helps

The Antelope Valley United Methodist Church, also known as the little white church with the red roof, has just finished filling 35 shoe boxes with goodies for children in approximately 90 Third World countries. The shoe boxes were filled with everything from toys, toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, etc. They have been sent to a church in Minden, from where they will be shipped to North Carolina for distributions in appropriate countries in time for Christmas. Thank you all.

Coleville High Boosters dinner

The boosters will hold their barbecue dinner Saturday, Dec. 6, at the Walker Community Center, starting 6 p.m. The doors will open at 5 p.m., after the Antelope Valley Lions Club Basketball Tournament. The cost for adults is $12, children 6-12 are $5, and children 5 and younger are free. There will be many door prize and raffle items, as well as silent and dessert auctions. The really special part of the evening for the children will be a visit from Santa. The boosters greatly appreciate any donations, as the funds raised will support our students at Coleville High School. Please plan on attending this last community event of the year, especially for their good efforts.

School sports

The Coleville High football team may have lost in the state semi-finals to the ultimate champions, but Jason Peters completed a record year. He is the 11th highest in the nation in passing yards, and the No. 1 for 8-man football, as well as setting records for the Nevada state division. In addition, he was the leading tackler for his team. Great year, Jason!

The middle school basketball team finally lost a game to Virginia City last week, but they still have a record of 5-1 for the season. They get this week off, but start again Tuesday at 3 p.m. against Smith Valley in Coleville.

This and that

We hope all of you out there have a great Thanksgiving, especially if you are getting together with your families and don't get to see them all the time.
