|Coins for Cancer|
Myself, First Princess Corrin Veiga, Second Princess Diana Mendoza and Third Princess Heather Van Corbach would like to express our appreciation to all the local businesses that contributed their change in the Coins for Cancer fundraiser. Two hundred dollars was collected, which will be added to the previous $800 from earlier fundraising, to make a total of $1,000 that will go to the American Cancer Association.
The Miss Sunnyside Court would also like to thank the community for bringing their cars to the car wash fundraisers, as this money will be used for us to attend parades. A big thank you to Colortyme for sponsoring and providing their business space for the car washes.
We so appreciate all your help in making a difference in our community.

Why no signs?
On June 30 I took two kids to Sunnyside's city pool at about 1 p.m. I can't be in the sun long so I found a tree with shade, the closest shady spot so that I could see my kids.
I was standing there talking to a friend on my phone when a man drove up in a white truck, got out and came up and ordered me to get off the sod. I didn't understand his words the first time so I asked him what he said. He said again, "Get off the sod!"
I mentioned to him that it wasn't blocked off and there was not a sign anywhere telling people to stay off. I got off the sod and had to go stand in the sun. I was at the pool/park two hours.
Minutes after he drove off there were six people sitting on the sod in lawnchairs and on towels. When I was rudely kicked off I was the only person and was standing on thick grass.
Some questions...how long has the pool been open? How many people have freely walked in that same area? Why isn't there a sign? Why isn't it blocked off? Did it do a lot of good to come by and order one person off the sod? Since the man went to the trouble to hop out of his truck to order me off, couldn't he ask a person nicely?
I thought it might be his job to drive around patrolling the sod area, but when the pool closed at 3 p.m. he still hadn't come back. I went to the desk at the pool and asked about that. Maybe someone will think to put signs up, then hope for the best.

The evening of June 21 at about 5:15 p.m. our son, 17, and daughter, 15, while on their way to Grandview were involved in a one-car rollover. As a parent, that is one phone call you never want to receive. Thanks to the seatbelts, our children both survived the two and a half rolls with only minor bumps, bruises and scratches.
Our children said that before they could get out of the car several people had stopped to help, and that is the reason for this letter. We want to thank all the people who helped our children in their time of need when we could not be there for them. They both said how very nice and comforting everyone was.
Thank you to the Sunnyside Fire Department and doctor and nurses for their kindness while our children were in their care.
As parents we are comforted knowing that so many people stopped to help. We don't know who you are and it hardly seems enough, but to all of you, a huge thank you.
