The newspaper will receive either a Silver or Gold Crown during the 87th Annual CSPA Convention at Columbia University on March 18.

    Seniors: Fresno City College is coming to campus Friday, Feb. 25, 8-10 a.m., to administer the required math and language tests for admission into FCC or any other area community college. So even if you are not planning on attending Fresno City, but may attend Willow International, Reedley College, or any other community college in the Valley, take advantage of this opportunity! Please sign up in the office with Mrs. Dooley right away! There is no charge for this service.

    This Saturday, Feb. 19, is the annual Parents Choice Awards for the high school Night of the Stars (NOTS) films. We encourage parents to come and vote for their favorite movies. The event will be held at the Peoples Church Multi-Purpose Room at 9 a.m. There will be donuts and coffee for all attendees. Student leadership class hopes that interested parents and friends can make it to support the high school students of Fresno Christian.

    Fresno Christian Schools will host the 28th annual FC Auction for members of the community in the FC Gym, March 12. The event, which includes a silent auction, steak dinner, live auction and other activities, will run from 5:30-9 p.m. All proceeds will support FCS.

    A silent auction will offer a variety of items, including gift certificates, services and desserts. Although the steak dinner will be served at 6:30, the silent auction will continue throughout the evening. The live auction will begin at 7:30 p.m. and continue until the event’s close.

    Police Chief Jerry Dyer will serve as the special guest emcee throughout the evening.

    The success of the FCS Auction is based on a unique blend of guests (bidders) as well as the number and quality of donations. A wide variety of quality merchandise is needed so there are items for all interests.

    Popular items include new merchandise, gift certificates, handcrafted boutique items, all types of professional services, entertainment packages, vacation packages, recreational equipment and outings, antiques, collectibles, jewelry, electronic equipment, landscaping, or gardening supplies, fancy desserts, and of course, cash to help with the cost of the event. Individual creativity is encouraged.

    All donations to Fresno Christian Schools are tax deductible.

    The HS track team has been practicing since Feb. 8 after school. Please meet on the South Field at 3:15 to speak with Coach Michelle Warkentin before practice starts. All students are encouraged to come out, meet the coach and join the team.

Tickets for the tri-tip dinner are only $10 each ($30 for a family of 4) and available by contacting Peggy Lee at 285-1003. Hall of Fame Coach Bob Bennett will be the featured speaker.

    The cost includes dinner, dessert, movies and a facility downtown on the 10th floor of the Grand 1401.

You can go with groups of friends or as couples.

    Scooters are not allowed on the Peoples Church campus or inside any buildings. The only places where scooters are allowed to be ridden are the parking lots. Violation of this rule will result in scooters being confiscated. Scooters will only be returned to parents.
