Carnival a success
The 2005 Outlook Carnival was a huge success! Not only was
this a safe and fun family event for our community children, it was our largest
fund-raiser for the year.
The Outlook Booster Club raises money each year to support
our staff and students at Outlook Elementary. Because of this event we can
purchase P.E. equipment, books for our library, die-cuts for the staff, reward
prizes for our reading and math programs, plus much, much more.
We wish to express our sincere appreciation to the Outlook
staff, parents, school board members, Sunnyside High School Decca and Key Club
students, Sunnyside Explorers and community members. Several of our local
businesses donated cash and groceries for the taco and pizza feed, as well as
prizes for Bingo. Many people provided their time in the kitchen, at the
carnival and during the clean-up at the end of the night.
This event would not have happened without your support.

Belated thank you
I want to thank those who helped weed, edge and compost the
flower beds behind the Fifth Street "handprint" guardrail.
The compost, which was very much needed, was donated by Ted
and Pam Durfey and delivered by Arlie Huffman. Those that edged, weeded and
spread the compost were Beverly Duncan, Dan, Bengie and Anthony Aguilar, Juan
and Alex Aguilar, Debbie and Dianna Mendoza, Cristina Klatovsky, Susie
Zamarron, Blanca Susana, Santiago and Margarito Lopez, Don Outhet, and Carrie
and Delbert Stone.
With your help we can make a difference!

U.S. should aid weaker people
It makes me sorry and sad to read and hear the hateful
remarks about the President and the war in Iraq. It seems that the people who
say these things don't have any compassion for the Iraqi people and the
tortures many of them suffered when Saddam Hussein was in control.
I believe our nation was raised up and blessed to come to
the aid of weaker people and nations, and that God is orchestrating this war of
deliverance. His WORD says that there will be people from every nation, tribe
and language in His Kingdom and that He has sent our nation to take the Light
of the World into the land of the Garden of Eden between the Tigris and
Euphrates Rivers where civilization began, and give the people there a chance
to respond to Him.
I heard the stirring
Battle Hymn of the Republic
today. Written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861, some
of the words are, "In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the
sea, With a Glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me. As He died to make
men Holy, LET US LIVE TO MAKE MEN FREE, While God is marching on!...Glory!
I truly believe this will turn out to God's glory and for
the saving of many souls.
