Does having fun while helping our local youth sound like a good idea to you? Does dancing to Big Band music and great food interest you? Then, grab your honey and gather friends and family to attend the 1st Annual Kiwanis Club of Yreka Dinner Dance featuring the Siskiyou Big Band and a delicious Top Sirloin/Chicken dinner prepared by Kermith Walters to take place on Friday, May 31, 6:00 to 11:30 pm at Winema Hall, Siskiyou Golden Fair Grounds.

Kiwanians Karen Evans and Clarence Barger presented their bright idea to the Club early this year and planning began for the Club’s most ambitious fundraiser of all. The Big Band Dinner Dance will fuel the club’s community service projects and donations to a large complement of needs and activities that enrich the lives of children and strengthen families. Many of you may know a Kiwanian or two but may not know of the time, hard work, and dedication they freely give. To be a Kiwanian is to dedicate yourself to changing the world one child and one community at a time. No Host Social Hour begins at 6:00 pm followed by the delicious top sirloin/chicken dinner with all the trimmings. Then get “In the Mood” for dancing to the 25 piece Siskiyou Big Band till 11:30 pm. Not a dancer? They’re great to watch and so are the dancers! (more…)

Trinity softball wins one over Weed before rain out

The Trinity Lady Wolves needed one win in their double header against the Weed Lady Cougars on Monday to ensure entry into the playoffs. As it turned out, the squads were only able to play one game, with Trinity winning 11-4, before thunderstorms necessitated cancellation of game-two.

Trinity jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning. Bradlee Plotzke led off with a base hit, stole second, and moved to third base when Savannah Brown grounded out. A single by Tess Johnston brought Plotzke home. Johnson went to second on a wild pitch. Cheyanne Noland reached on a fielder’s choice that erased Johnston. Noland scored when Laurel Dummer reached on an error. Cesalie Merryman tripled to drive in Drummer. Merryman continued home when the throw to third went awry.

Brown singled with two down in the top of the second inning, went to third on a passed ball, and scored on a hit by Johnston, making it a 5-0 lead for the Lady Wolves. (more…)
