Antelope Valley residents fear no more school buses

This a scary possibility for Antelope Valley residents and their school children.

We have learned that the anticipated transportation budget for the school district may very well not have funds for the buses to continue taking our students to and from school.

This will be discussed at length 6 p.m. Nov. 16, at the Antelope Elementary School multi-purpose room.

If you have school-age children who attend our local schools, it is imperative that you attend this meeting and learn what the future holds for their getting to school.

Since a lot of the parents in our valley work away from the valley, and can’t drive their kids to school, this is truly important for all.

Mountain Gate workday

This Saturday, November 12 between 9 a.m. and noon, there will be a work day to pick up litter, collect wood debris for burning, as well as other tasks.

In the past few workdays, the Marines from MWTC have been a huge help, outnumbering our residents in their help with this future boon to our area.

If you can, please come out to help. Bring rakes, shovels, gloves, etc.

Mobile Food Pantry

Just another reminder that at 10:30 a.m., Nov. 18 and Dec. 16, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, in cooperation with Mono County, will have their food pantry at the Walker Senior Center. For more information, call (800) 541-1822, ext. 26.

Arts and crafts

Sunday, Nov. 20, the Antelope Valley Women’s Club is holding their 44th annual Christmas bazaar at the Community Center in Walker, with many craft booths, door prizes, etc. The doors open at noon, with a roast beef or turkey dinner available from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

On the same day, across the street at the Walker Senior Center from noon to 5 p.m., the Antelope Valley Artists will have their annual pre-Christmas Fine Arts show and sale. There are fantastic works of art by our talented locals, including paintings and jewelry. It is always fun to go and see their beautiful work and have the chance to own it.

Boosters dinner

The Coleville High School Boosters will have their annual fund-raising dinner Dec. 3, starting 5 p.m., at the Antelope Valley Volunteer Fire Department, 1166 Larson Lane. There will be silent and dessert auctions, and dinner will be barbecued baby back ribs and chicken. Dinner will be $12 for adults, $6 for kids under 12.
