Taborski Co-0wner/Publisher Keri Taborski Sherri McConnell :M!usic to Rotary's ear While conducting the annual music contest over the past cou- ple of decades, it became obvious to the Quincy Rotary Club that music instructor Johny McDonald has devoted much of her life and a tremendous amount of her time to helping stu- dents advance their musical endeavors. To recognize her dedication to both the students and the art, Director Jim Boland presented her with an honorary award on behalf of the local service club. Taking first and second place this year were Kelsey Kepple, playing the violin, and Natalie Kepple, seated at the cello. While the two sisters competed against one another in a field of seven contestants in all, Kelsey was accompanied by her younger sister in one of the two songs she performed before the club at its weekly luncheon meeting. Photos by Mike Taborski ;00lumni name Chester gym after teacher "In the '50s, '60s and '70s there were no sports for girls. Luana was an English teacher, gym teacher and coach. She was responsible for beginning many of the ex- tra curricular sports and cul- tural activities for girl stu- dents," Sayre said. The Feb. 23 vote continues the most recent process start- ed by several of the alumni in December 2009. At that time they presented an initiative to the Plumas Unified School District board in which they Stated their desire to name the school gymnasium after Adamson. As a result of the presenta- tion, Lake Almanor Basin board representative Sonja Anderson formed a local com- mittee to discuss the idea. An- derson, who attended the meeting, said she would re- port the results of the vote when the PUSD board meets March9 in portola. Anderson also said, "Al- though I am ohly one vote M. Kate West Chester Editor chesternews@plu "It will still be the Chester High School gym, it will just have Darold Adamson's name on it," said alumna Joan Sayre Feb. 23 at the conclu- sion of the vote on the initia- tive to name the CHS gym. Although other names were mentioned in discus- sion, Adamson was the only individual nominated for the honor. "Darold was a CHS teacher, coach and principal from 1957-1984. There have been other coaches, but the longevity is his," said Sayre. Sayre commented on the unanimous vote, "We can also do a plaque and place in the gym or other area of the school where we recognize all coaches--past, present and fu- ture." Among those Sayre thought should be listed is Luana Gakle. NEwsMAKEK Navy Seaman Trista F. Chronister, a 2005 graduate of Plumas Charter.School, Quin- cy, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Re- cruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Chronister com- pleted a variety of training which included classroom bs, gills & m00re CLUB ~ lst-3rd~ study and practical instruc- tion on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An em- phasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations." This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is de- signed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacri- fice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each re- cruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commit- ment. Its distinctly "Navy" flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor. Meets first Saturday of each month at 10:30 a.m. 373 W. Main St. in Quincy '28:-BOO K (2665) Mon. - Sat. 10 - 6 Sun. 1'24pm among five, I don't anticipate any obstacles to your request." July 3 dedication In anticipation of PUSD board approval, the group be- gan planning a dedication ceremony, barbecue and so- cial near the football field. In looking at a date that would likely work best for the great- est number of alumni, July 3, was selected, because nearly all those that return home usually do so around the Fourth of July. Nonprofit or not Chairing the group of ap- proximately 25 alumni, Bing Miller brought up the topic of checks being received in sup: port of a formalized CHS Alumni Association. She talkedabout the need for a federal identification number to cash the checks and open a bank account. Discussion was held on the potential of start- ing a nonprofit organization. Miller also said, "Alumni Bill qickman has sent infor- mation :on the possible use of the Plumas County Education Foundation to deposit these funds." She said he verified the foundation was current in status and only needed to seat a new board of directors. She said the foundation was a totally separate entity from the school district and banking through that organi- zation would protect those alumni funds. CHS Principal Scott Cory advised members that schools in Chester also had a similar organization called the Re- naissance Foundation. He said this foundation, too, was not connected in any way to the school district and he of- fered it as an option to the alumni. "We could also use a couple of more board members," he added.

In follow-up, school secre- tary Cheryl Henry said Feb. 25 that she would be working to set a meeting date within the next three weeks. Trophy cases Miller said alumna Marie White had spoken to Janice White of the Collins Company about the potential donation of lumber for the construction of trophy cases and that feed- back about the donation was very positive. During the continuing dis- cussion, Cory was asked if it would be possible for the wood shop students to build the cases. He agreed and sug- gested that members of the group get together with him to do a walk around the school to look for potential sites where the cases could be located. Cory said it would be an im- portant first step to ensure ap- proval wasTeclved by the school's insurance program. A committee will be formed to do the walk around and basic design of the trophy cases. Improved communication "We are extremely pleased with ,the number of alumni who are e-mailing and calling in their input. It is our goal to have past students from every decade join and be in- volved in the association," said Sayre. She also said the group was building a master list of names, graduation years and e-mail addresses. During the Feb. 23 meeting, the group asked all interested graduates to send an e-mail to member Marie White at top- For more information about the proposed association or the dates of ffl.ure alumni meetings, contact committee members Bing Miller at 258- 2533, Joan Sayre at 258-2677 or Marie White at 258-9800.
