Local students to perform in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Last Saturday more than 700 of the best cheerleaders and dancers from around the county headed to New York to march in the 83rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Once-in-a-lifetime participation in the parade will include Del Norte High School Cheer Co-Captains Bridgette Mayo and Valerie Galindo. Performers are selected by invitation and/or qualification through summer cheer and dance camps.

In order to be eligible to perform in the parade, cheerleaders and dancers had to attend a cheer camp, be a sophomore, junior or senior in high school and be the captain or co-captain of their cheerleading or dance team.

Bridgette and Valerie were selected this past summer at the UCA Varsity Cheer Camp held at Del Norte High School. Bridgette is a four-year Del Norte Cheer Team member and Valerie is completing her third year.

During their short break between DNHS football and basketball seasons, they will spend six days with Mike Miller and Associates Special Events Varsity Spirit experiencing New York City.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade begins at 6 a.m. (PST) on Thanksgiving Day. NBC has exclusive rights to their pre-positioned performance routine in Herald Square.

Scholarship established in local woman’s name

The children of Lucille Ralston have established a continuing scholarship in her memory. They thought that there may be others who knew Lucille well who would like to honor her by contributing to this award.

In order to do so, the donation should be made out to the Del Norte Scholarship Foundation and sent to Doris Whalen, 275 Elk Valley Road, Crescent City, CA 95531. Upon receiving the donation, a receipt will be sent to you and Lucille’s children will be notified.

Thanksgiving side dishes

Caramelized tarts and ravioli mushroom onto holiday menu

There’s nothing like picking wild mushrooms to bring out the gatherer in a person.

It can also bring out the chef — just in time for Thanksgiving.

This is the time of year that mushrooms start popping up everywhere, aided by the rain.

To cook with the fleshy fungus, the gatherer not only needs to know exactly what mushrooms he or she is looking for, but pick the freshest variety.

“There’s a small window of time,” local chef Devon Morgante said about picking mushrooms. “You’ve got to get them pretty quick.”

After finding the treasure in the woods, clean the mushrooms and keep them in a paper bag in a safe spot outside or in the refrigerator, he said.

Morgante used chanterelles, hedgehogs and a king bolete picked locally —  a mushroom gatherer never reveals secret picking spots — to prepare wild mushroom and caramelized onion tarts and ravioli.
