Play poker for a good cause

Our local Relay for Life team, the Antelope Valley Survivors, is having a poker night, 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Walker Community Center, which will be a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The cost is a $20 donation for this fun evening. There will be a 50/50 and other raffles, and cocktails will be available. Please come out and support their efforts.

Speaking of the Survivors, I am so proud to report that they were the second highest overall fundraisers of all 63 teams in the Carson Valley group, as announced at the Relay in Gardnerville on July 26. That is pretty darn good for the team from possibly the smallest area participating. Congratulations and many thanks to all the members who worked so hard to have this success.

How Big is Big? fishing derby

The derby finished last Friday, and the winner for this year was Craig Harner, whose 6.8-pound, 23-inch trout was the largest registered. Nice work, Craig! If you didn't give the derby a try this year, come out next year. Besides having a lot of fun fishing, there are some really good prizes to win.

Regional Planning Advisory Committee

The Antelope Valley RPAC will hold their monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Walker Community Center. It is a good opportunity to hear what is proposed for our area and its future. Please feel free to come and give any input you may have.

Board of supervisors meeting

The Mono County Board of Supervisors will hold an evening meeting, 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18, at the Walker Community Center. They have these special meetings during the year to discuss issues that affect our area. It is a good evening of information and a great chance to give your opinion. Hope to see you there!
