Before handing the event over to CHS music director Austin King, Cory took a moment to recognize former music di- rector Marsha Roby, who sat in the front row. "We have a celebrity here tonight," Cory said warmly. "Marsha Roby, who taught and developed the music pro- gram here for 15 years." Cory went on to praise The Lake Almanor Elks Lodge No. 2626 extends its annual Christmas giving to support yet another program focused on overcoming challenges for local teens. Lodge Secretary Dave Henise (left) presented a $500 check to Almanor Basin Community Resource Center volunteers Tawnya Drake and Juanita Nix Dec. 13. The volunteers are working to provide local teens with two special holiday activities under the auspices of what they have named "The SD Project." The first activity is a Christmas Eve dinner and party and the second is a New Year's Eve pizza party and dance. The remaining funds will be used to assist with the personal needs of the teens. The donation came from the Elks Lodge, the annual Wheel Around Lake Almanor handcycle event and the Elks National Foundation.

The CHS Junior High band took to the stage first, per- forming "Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer," "Dragon Slayer" and "Kings, Kings, Kings." Next" the Chester High School band played "Post- wood March," "The Little Drummer Boy," "In Quest of Uluru" and "The Christmas Song," best known for its lyrics about chestnuts and a fire. Midway through the band's performance King stopped and took a moment to talk to the audience about the band. "The (high school) band is entirely made up of ninth- graders," King said, "and they're performing some pretty advanced stuff, and doing really well." Following the two bands came the CHS choir, accom- panied by Lori Metcalf on pi- ano. The five singers that comprised the choir per- formed "Somewhere Out There," "Winte.r Wonder- land" and "Hallelujah," a song popularized in the ani- mated movie "Shrek." The finale of the night was the CHS jazz band, joined by guest pianist Marsha Roby. The band performed several pieces showcasing each mu- sician's talents in impro- vised solos. "The solos weren't written out ahead of time. The stu- dents actually come up with them on the fly as they play," King told the audience. "The students weren't sure about performing the solos at first, but they've done a great job with them." After the performance, King thanked everyone who helped make the concert pos- sible, and he thanked fhe parents for both encouraging and allowing their students to practice at home. Christmas ch v v v v The Lake Almanor Elks Lodge No. 2626 continues into its second week of Christmas giving when lodge secretary Dave Henise presents Teen Angel program founder and coordinator Barbara Haines with a check for $600. She said the funds would be used to purchase gift certificates in Chester, her determined way of helping to boost the local economy. Christmas certificates for the youth will allow them t 0 eat out with friends several times a week, get a haircut and/or style and purchase school supplies. This is the second year Haines has coordinated the community program and the second year the Elks have contributed to its success. Henise said the funds for the donation came from three sources: the Elks Lodge itself, the annual Wheel Around Lake Almanor event and a grant from the Elks National Foundation. Photo by M.
