Thieves strike

This is for the person(s) who broke into my Pathfinder on Lincoln Avenue the morning of Nov. 1. I hope you enjoy the new stereo and Gameboy you took as much as we enjoyed them.

I hope that if you are giving these items to someone you love for Christmas that they enjoy them also. Wishing you the merriest of Christmases.

P.S. Please give me back my registration and insurance card for this vehicle for they are of no use to you, unless you plan to take the car next? Leave them in my mailbox. Thanks.

Aguilar excellent role model for all

Now that the 2005 election season has ended, I want to extend my many thanks to ex-Sunnyside Councilwoman Bengie Aguilar for the years of service she unselfishly gave to our community. Ms. Aguilar brought integrity to her position, always driven by her convictions and compassion towards the needs and concerns of the citizens of Sunnyside.

She sought to work collaboratively with those around her to ensure that issues brought before the Council were resolved in a timely and appropriate manner.

While on the Council Ms. Aguilar proved to be a courageous visionary, at times taking a stand on topics others might have shied away from. By always soliciting and seeking input from the community, Ms. Aguilar kept herself grounded and never lost focus of why she was elected to office.

I believe Bengie Aguilar is an excellent role model for all; from young to old, women or men. She has opened and paved the way for aspiring future leaders in our community.

Again, thank you Bengie!

Blood drawing successful

Sponsored by the Nouvella Club, with Rita Blunk as chairperson, we had a very successful blood drawing on Nov. 8.

Teh quota was 77 units. We had 94 presenters and nine first-time donors, 15 were unable to give, leaving 79 units collected. Because of their efforts, 237 people will have another chance at life.

A big thank you to the sponsors for donating the juice and home baked cookies, to United Methodist Church for the use of its hall, the Daily Sun News for all the publicity and Max of Washington Corrugators for displaying the banner at Centennial Square.

And then there are the volunteers whose services are always appreciated: Alice Benedetti, Myrtis Lang, Ella Mae Lochner, Lu Ann Roach, Patti Leifeste, Phyllis Morris and Ruth Stark.

A very special thanks to the donors, who are the lifeline for the flow of blood in the Valley.

We hope to see everyone at the next American Red Cross blood drawing on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at the United Methodist Church hall from 1 to 6 p.m.

/s/ Marie Handy, Sunnyside blood drawing chairman
