Grand opening support much appreciated

We had our grand opening at Javahhh!! Espresso Saturday, Nov. 4, and I was very happy with the turnout we had. We are very appreciative of all the new customers we got to meet and our regulars who came to support us.

In the weeks leading up to the opening I approached some local businesses to ask for prizes for our drawing. The idea was to let our customers try other local businesses if they hadn’t yet, and to introduce myself to fellow business owners. I feel I accomplished these goals and I have to thank the people that welcomed me with open arms: Mark and Sara Cook from Morris Floral, Sue Hook from SunnySpot Restaurant, Irene from Fashion Corner, Megan Jensen from Desert Haven, Fodor Chiropractic, Marie and Shellie from Shellie’s Hair Design, Sunny Spot Car Wash, Double D Steak House, Patsy and Cathy from Scissor City. And, we couldn’t have done this without all of the help from Bob and Dinah Curfman from Just Ask Rental.

We do hope our customers enjoyed the prizes they got and we hope to see you again at our Christmas party.

I would like to finish by thanking everyone, including new and old customers and our friends and family for all of the wonderful support we have received in the last month.

Outlook Carnival

a ringing success

The 2006 Outlook Carnival was a huge success! Not only was this a safe and fun family event for our community children, it was our largest fundraiser 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 buy additional P.E. equipment, books for our library and 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!

Next blood drawing Jan. 2

The American Red Cross blood drawing held on Nov. 7 was sponsored by the Nouvella Club. Rita Blunk chaired this successful event.

The quota was 70 units. We had 89 presenters and two first-time donors. Fourteen were unable to give, leaving 75 units collected. Because of their efforts 225 people will have another chance at life.

Many thanks to the sponsors for donating the juice and delicious home-baked cookies, to the United Methodist Church for the use of its hall, to Max for displaying the banner and to the Daily Sun News for the great publicity.

I would also like to thank the following volunteers: Ramona Meek, Alice Benedetti, Myrtis Lang, Ella Mae Lochner, Phyllis Morris, Ruth Stark, LuAnn Roach, Ruth Ganser and Willie Walli.

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

Please join us at the next blood drawing on Tuesday, Jan. 2, at the United Methodist Church hall from 1 to 6 p.m. to give the gift of life.

/s/ Marie Handy, Sunnyside blood drawing chairman
