Women's Club readies for Nov. 9 bazaar

The Antelope Valley Women's Club annual bazaar is noon to 5 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Walker Community Center. There will be many good raffle prizes, as well as the opportunity to see the many crafts booths. At 5 p.m., dinner will be available. This is always a good chance to look around for holiday gift items and see so many people we know.

Antelope Valley artists' show

Nov. 9, across the street from the community center, at the Walker Senior Center, the Antelope Valley Artists will be holding their annual show in conjunction with the bazaar. You can enjoy the talents of our neighbors, as well as purchase one of their beautiful creations if you desire.

Memorial service for Rich Boardman

As most of you are now aware, longtime Valley resident, Rich Boardman passed away Oct. 22. Saturday, Nov. 8, starting at 11 a.m., a memorial service in his honor will be held at the Walker Community Center. Rich contributed to so much in this valley and will be sorely missed. Our sympathy to Nancy and family.

Regional Planning Advisory Committee

The Nov. 6 meeting of RPAC will take place 7 p.m. at the Walker Community Center. Due to the publicized changes within Sierra Pacific Power, they have been asked to come to the meeting and discuss our local service. The public is strongly urged to attend and hear the future plans for our power.

Mono County Library survey

All residents of the Antelope Valley recently received a survey form from the county library system regarding some suggested changes in our facilities. Please take the time to fill out this pre-stamped survey and return it to them.

Holiday mailing to our troops

I received correspondence from Josh Armstrong, Coleville postmaster, regarding the cost of and deadlines for mailing to our troops overseas for the holidays. The U.S. Postal Service is being very helpful with the service and cost, but you will need to find out the information that applies to your own needs. You can call the post office at (530) 495-2133 for what will affect you and your mailings.

This and that

n Local resident Chris Baker has been suffering from lung cancer, breast cancer and brain cancer for the past many months. She is undergoing extensive radiation treatment and will then face chemotherapy. As we all can imagine, the expense of the necessary treatments is monumental. A benefit dinner will be held for Chris on Nov. 15, 5:30 p.m. at the Walker Community Center. The dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger. There will be raffles after dinner. Please try to help with this very worthy event. Hope to see you there.

n The Coleville High School football and volleyball teams just keep on winning. The football team has a record of 8-1 for the season, 7-1 being in league play. The volleyball team has a league record 12-1. Wow, we have some good athletes in our valley!

n The Walker Thrift Store very generously made room to offer T-shirts for a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. They are very nice shirts and only cost a donation of $10 each, with all funds going to the fight to beat cancer. Unfortunately, there was one person who obviously liked the shirt but didn't feel it was necessary to make a donation, so they shoplifted the shirt. Whoever out there did that, I hope you are really proud of yourself, but you should sure hope that you are never diagnosed with the disease.
