Spring activities picking up speed


The Antelope Valley Lions Club's Pasture Golf Tournament will take place Saturday at the Baldo Giorgi ranch on Topaz Lane, Topaz, Calif. It's easy to find, just one mile off Highway 395. As always, this will be a fun day of pasture golf, with a fantastic barbecue lunch of ribs with all the trimmings. If you haven't signed up yet or would like more information, you can call Dave at (530) 495-2822. Hope to see you there.

Library game night

The Coleville Library will be hosting a game night for young people ages 8 to 18 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday at the Coleville library. Call 495-2788 for details.

New RV resort in the valley

The new Meadowcliff RV Resort has opened at the Meadowcliff Lodge and Restaurant site. The resort offers everything an RV traveler could wish to have, including cable TV, a clubhouse, laundry facilities, computer access, and a whole lot more. If you or any of your friends want to spend time in the Antelope Valley, enjoying all the recreation available, call Tim or Mary at (888) 333-8132 or visit their Web site at www.meadowcliff.com. To make things even more convenient for travelers and local residents, starting April 24 the restaurant will be serving dinners on Friday and Saturday nights. These days may increase as the season moves on.

Dinner and poker

The Northern Mono Chamber of Commerce is holding their annual fish fry dinner on Saturday, April 25, Walker Community Center. In conjunction with their dinner, the Antelope Valley Survivors Relay for Life team is planning another fun poker night after the dinner. I'll have more details of times, etc., in my next column. Jot it down on your calendar now.

Thrift store bag sale

The Walker Thrift Store will have their $3 or $6 bag sale April 21 to April 25. You can buy all the clothing that will fit in the brown paper bag for $3, or you can get anything in the store, except jewelry, that fits in the bag for $6. Such a deal!

This and that

The Beta Sigma Phi sorority's corned beef and cabbage dinner was its usual success, and there were some lucky winners of the three large raffle prizes: Pat Shanahan won the Visa gift card, Jamie Sanchez won the ridge trip, and Edna Tracy won the beautiful necklace from Out West Gallery. Congratulations to them and the other winners.

The Eastern Sierra Region Lions Club speakers contest was won by Andrew Oliveira in very tough competition with Kristina Blum from Bishop. Both of their speeches were excellent, and I'm glad I didn't have to be one of the judges to decide on the winner. Andrew now moves on to higher competition in the state, with scholarship funds available for the ultimate winners.
