It looks like we will have several opportunities to be entertained, as well as have a nice dinner here in Sterling in the next few weeks.
On Feb. 16 and 17 the Sterling Senior Center will host "Alaska Gold or Yukon Depend On Me". This will be a melodrama musical set in a rural village in Alaska during the gold rush days. The show on Saturday will be combined with a dinner of prospector's stew, sourdough bread and dessert. The show on Sunday will be accompanied by dessert only.
Tickets will only be sold in advance at the front desk at the center, so be sure to get your tickets early if you plan to attend.
On Friday night the center will host the movie "The Wind and the Lion." Hamburgers and hot dogs are on the snack menu, of course, the usual free coffee and popcorn will be served. Snack service will start at 6 p.m. and the movie will begin at 7.
It's still a few weeks away, but Feb. 23 is the fifth annual dinner, show and auction hosted by the Sterling Head Start. They will work in cooperation with the Sterling Community Club, and this fundraiser will be held at the Sterling Senior Center starting at 6 p.m. They will have a variety show and a prime rib dinner prepared by Chef Michael Even and served by a Skyview High School youth group.
A limited amount of tickets for the show and dinner are available for $25 each at Sterling Head Start, CBC Rentals, The Wedding Brokers or from Vonnie Pierce. If you would like to make a donation for the auction or inquire about tickets you may call Sterling Head Start at 260-7446.
It has come to my attention that the Sterling Winter Fun Days that was previously scheduled for Feb. 17 has been cancelled.
I told you a few weeks ago about the Sterling Senior Center choir's fundraising breakfast. Well, quite a few of you must have been hungry because they fed 82 people and brought in $825 in donations. After paying for the cost of the groceries, the money raised will be used to help pay for new audio/visual equipment and supplies for the February musical production. The choir members want to thank all the people who volunteered and all of you that came to eat and enjoy.
Today, Feb. 4, happy birthday wishes to Louie Edwards; Don Deasy and Carm Bongiovanni on Feb. 5; Carl Lindstrom and William Lowe on Feb. 6; Fern Chamberlin on Feb. 7; and Thomas Vogel, Terry Moxey and Marion Barrett on Feb. 8.
As always, if you have any news you would like to see printed in this section of the paper, get it to me by phone or e-mail no later than Wednesday evening for inclusion in the following Monday's paper (as space permits.) I am especially interested to hear about any family members who are serving in the military overseas.
