Club makes holiday gifts

Santa Soroptimist was at it again! Soroptimist International of Crescent City made two more donations over the holiday season, one to CASA of Del Norte and one to Harrington House.

The donation to CASA of Del Norte was for gift cards for use by their volunteer advocates, and the children they advocate on behalf of, at community establishments, such as McDonalds, Tsunami Lanes, and Crescent City Cinemas. Since CASA advocates are all volunteers, outings such as these are usually paid for out of their own pockets. This will allow the advocates and children to enjoy a special time together at no cost to the advocate.

The donation to Harrington House was a cash gift to be used by the shelter for food costs, one of its main expenses.

 Soroptimist International of Crescent City is dedicated to helping women and children in our community through service projects, awards, and donations.  To learn more about the club, visit www.soroptimist-crescentcity.org or visit one of their club lunches on Tuesdays at noon at the Apple Peddler.

Campground wins awards

The Crescent City/Redwoods KOA Campground, owned by Kevin and Joan Fallon, received two of Kampgrounds of America's top honors at the recent KOA Jamboree held in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

 The campground, located at 4241 U.S. Highway 101 N., Crescent City, received the KOA President’s Award and the KOA Founder’s Award. The President’s Award is given to KOA campground owners who are recognized by their campers as among the best in the KOA system of more than 450 campgrounds throughout North America. The Founder’s Award is even more prestigious, given to only those campgrounds that receive the President’s Award and that also rank at the very top of KOA’s annual camper satisfaction surveys.

“It's an honor for me to be able to recognize our very best campgrounds, and this KOA is definitely among the finest in our system,” said Shane Ott, president and chief operating officer of Kampgrounds of America, Inc. “The owners and staff of this park know how to deliver great customer service to their campers. There is nothing like spending your valuable free time at a relaxing, affordable campground with people that know how to take care of you.”

 Kampgrounds of America was founded in 1962 in Billings, Mont., and has grown to become the world’s largest system of family-friendly campgrounds.

I would like to thank all the members and everyone for all the hard work we have put in for 2008. We, the Del Norte County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, especially thank the Humboldt Area Foundation and the Wild Rivers Community Foundation for providing funding so that families were able to get holiday food boxes.

For the first time in Smith River, holiday food boxes were given out to families who weren't able to obtain one. Over 50 boxes were given out. This project will continue in 2009.

Thank you, Smith River Baptist, La Espuela Market, Mr. Gary Leal, Hilda, Alexander Dairy, Starbucks, Safeway, Auto-Parts, Wal-Mart and the Del Norte Office Supply for all you do, all year around.

There are so many people we need to thank. It’s great to live in a community that supports one another. We have accomplished great things in 2008 and we will accomplish even greater things in 2009. A very special thank you to Huarache. Happy New Year’s - Feliz Ano Nuevo 2009.
