Photo courtesy Plumas Arts OUR PRIVATE EDEN TIME FORGOT In Woodland Hills, beneath our overhang, Adorned with clusters of wisteria, We brunched as from the hifi divas sang. Dramatic airs from some grand opera. Surrounded by camellias by our pool We watched the carp and koi swim here and there In rhythmic movements lone or in a school, Which soothed the nerves and dissipated care. I built a bridge and flagstone waterfall And bamboo posts with ropes for holding fast And all was fenced with gate and six-foot wall Cemented in and anchored there to last. We shared with cats this lush, festooned, idyllic spot; Sequestered in our private Eden time forgot. Salvatore (Sam) Catalano December 22, 2014 "I think this will be a great event. It will be right up there with our 'Star Follies,'" said Carolyn Shipp, the executive director of the foundation, "and the best part is the public will get to see firsthand where their money is going: to the students running around in staff shirts." "It is just so nice to see people come rally around activities where the funding goes directly towards students," said fundraising co-chairperson Lisa Kelly. "It is rewarding to support education in Plumas County." Ticketfor thq eventare $10 for general seating, $25 for individual floorside tickets and $200 for a whole table.
