Support fireworks request Monday
Most people believe that the 4
fireworks are provided by the City of Sunnyside. The Sunnyside Lions Club,
local VFW and VFW auxiliaries sponsor the annual 4
fireworks display. We work hard for 12 months to raise funds through donation
jars, private donations, fundraisers such as the VFW dinners (like tonight’s
chili dog feed) and other projects.
Every year we approach City Council for a contribution
toward the fireworks expenses, and every year we struggle to make them
understand the value and the importance of this patriotic display in the
We will present our request to City Council again this year
on Monday, June 12. If you wish to voice your support, please attend the
council meeting at 6:30 p.m.

a big success
Thank you to the many generous parents who volunteered their
time and talents throughout the school year in an effort to provide a fun and
safe graduation party for our Sunnyside High School class of 2006.
The party was held immediately following graduation until
the wee hours of 2 a.m. Lots of food was consumed by hungry, new graduates, as
bingo and casino gaming areas were set up with great prizes to win. Music and
dancing was enjoyed, along with fun-for-all gaming activities.
Thank you to all the senior parents who helped during the
entire year, those who donated supplies or who volunteered at the party. Thank
you to the junior class parents for supply the desserts and vegetable trays for
Thank you to all the merchants for their donations for the
A special thank you to the following parents who found the
time to make sure things got done: Molly Ramos, Kim Taylor-Morris, Mike
Aguirre, Laura Simmons, Cheryl Huenefeld and Sharon Tyler. Apologies for anyone
The graduating class of 2006 ended its special evening with
memories of eating, dancing, playing and laughing together. Some of the larger
prizes raffled off consisted of two-way radios, luggage, mountain bikes, Play
Station 2, Game Cube, digital cameras, I-POD Nano’s, TV’s, microwaves, BBQ’s, a
laptop and a 1995 Jeep Wrangler.
As you can see, it took a lot of support from parents and
merchants to leave these young adults with great memories of their senior
graduation evening. What an awesome accomplishment!
Thank you, once again, to all those who took the time to
make it happen. It was definitely worth it.

Sunnyview Park improvements appreciated
Our family would like to thank the City of Sunnyside for its
recent hard work in improving the conditions of Sunnyview Park. We are a
softball family, so we’re there once or twice a week playing league games.
The new dirt on the softball fields, the shorter grass and
the newly paved parking lot are all much appreciated, and have made coming to
the ball park much more enjoyable for our entire team.
We have heard further improvements might be planned, and we
think that is a great idea.
We would also like to urge other teams and visitors to the
park to help keep it clean by not leaving behind any garbage. This would be an
easy way to show the City of Sunnyside that we appreciate its hard work, and
would appreciate any other improvements that could be made.
Thanks, again, for a much more enjoyable summer at the park!
