From left: Kyonna, Parker, Amy and Frank. "1 love being with my family and Follies is a great way to bring the family together," Frank said. Quincy Star Follies: We fa "ly " are mz The Quincy Star Follies, the popular show that benefits the Feather River College Foundation, is back for its fourth year. "The great thing about this event is that it has something for the whole family both in the show and in our audience," said show producer Lisa Kelly. The cast is made up of community members of all ages -- from elementary school to college students, rooms and dads, and grandparents, too. This year several families are performing. "It is an incredible bonding experience for the families involved whether they are doing a number together or just cheering each other on," Kelly said. "This year we've got all the kids front and center because they are so important to the show." Amy and Frank Carey perform in the show with their three children. Their son Parker isn't keen on rehearsal, but likes to perform. "It seems like punishment now, but during the show you are really happy you did it," he said. Another performing family is Jim and Aleda White and their three daughters: Eldest daughter Pamela likes the experience because she works and dances with people that she wouldn't know otherwise and her sister Lillian likes it because "it's exciting to be on stage and hanging out backstage with my friends." Mimi Hall brought her children to the show three years ago, and then saw their dad perform the following year, and this year the entire family of five -- Mimi and Thom, and children Thommi, Kai and Melia -- will be on stage. "I love sharing my own family with the Follies family," Mimi said. "I owe Lisa and all the peoPle behind the production a great big thank-you not just for doing this great fundraiser, but for helping to build a sense of community through Quincy Star F011ies." Her daughter Melia shares her enthusiasm. "My favorite part of the Follies is doing something new with my best friend and my brother and sister, while we're raising funds for our schools," she said. Kelly said that "everyone has an important role" and the Star Follies coes together with a dancing, jumping, jiving collection of music from contemporary to old school. "If you like big band, rhythm and blues, rock 'n' roll, or Broadway, you will love us and never want to leave," Kelly said. "The sound is big and the costumes evenbiggerP ...................

MARGARET COOKE February 28, 1914 April 20, 2014 In life, there's not a friehd nor worthy cause That Margaret Cooke has failed to touch with love; And even as our grief-struck hearts must pause, She shares with angels now the light above. And as we focus on the roadahead, Without remorse for what we've left behind, So Margaret Cooke asthmatic bonds has shed And breathes a freedom of the sweetest kind. Though Margaret's music swells our hearts no more, And we shall see no other quilt she's sewn, The heavens echo with her organ's roar, And quilts she sews warm heaven's highest throne. So evermore the choral hosts of chosen souls Shall harmonize to Margaret's mighty organ rolls. Written at Margaret's request.
