Rick and Karen Alvord win Best of Show at Rex Club Days Mountain Cruisers Car Show

Rick and Karen Alvord from Redding won the trophy for Best of Show at the Mountain Cruisers Car Show at Rex Club Days. Their prize-winning vehicle was a cherry red 1957 Chevy Belair.

Sixty participants from California and Oregon came to enter their classic cars in the show. This is the 26th year that Mountain Cruisers has sponsored the car show for Rex Club Days. Plaques were also awarded for First and Second Place for each class of Stock, Modified, and Open.

Ron Conley, President of Mountain Cruisers said, “Everybody would like to win, but it’s really about connecting with others, sharing  ideas, and having a wonderful time.”

Rick Alvord acquired his winning ’57 Chevy in 1999 and spent 10 years working on it in his garage before it was ready for its first show in 2009. In addition to winning Best of Show, they also won Rex Club Choice.

Mrs. Alvord said, “There were a lot of other cars that were deserving, so we are very honored.”

Proceeds from the car show go to benefit local charities, such as the schools and the library. This year a free night’s swim at the Raymond Berry Community Pool will be one of the projects funded.

In addition to the car show, there was also a fine art and craft fair sponsored by the Rotary Club of Burney-Fall River and organized by Andrew Urlie. Various booths featured items such as hand-made quilts and baby blankets, art photography, jewelry, home-made soaps, great hand-crafted wood items by the McKay brothers, and fine art pottery by Mr. Urlie.

Starry Nights shares the joy of the Christmas season

More than 150 people came to the Word of Life Assembly of God Church (WOLA) on Sunday evening December 17 to attend their Starry Nights program. This year’s program combined the annual chili cook-off with a sing-along of traditional Christmas carols.

Janyce Hamlin hit all the high notes on O Holy Night

Rev. Ken Frazier and Rev. Corey Yake welcomed people the full house to the church and emceed the evening’s program.

Every table was full with more people sitting in chairs lining the room. Three wonderful singers, Tammy Allison, Janice Hamlin, and Carolyn Garrigus, led the entire group for one hour singing favorite traditional carols and a selection of popular Christmas songs such as Jingle Bells and White Christmas.

Tammy Allison, Janice Hamlin, and Carolyn Garrigus leading the Sing-along

Between some of the songs, audience members were asked if they would like to share a story. People responded with personal testimonies and heart-warming accounts of love shared in Christmas past.

After the singing, Rev. Frazier explained the process of the chili cook-off. There were 17 entrees this year. People went table by table through the line and received a small plastic bowl of each chili with a number on it.

Seventeen kinds of Chili to choose from

To compliment the chili, there was a full table of toppings and corn bread.

Lots of toppings

For dessert, there were cookies and baked goods.

Cookies and cupcakes anyone

After sampling all of the chilies, the diners wrote the number of their favorite on a card. WOLA had Olympic like medals for those who received the most votes. The first, second, and third place winners also won a can of almond rocha candy as a prize.

Pastor Frazier announced the results of the tally. Third place winner was Rick Yochum. Ron Edwards won second place. Then last year’s winner Krissi Foutch came forward to present the gold medal for most popular chili to Jennifer Penn.

Rev. Ken Frazier, Krissi Foutch, Rick Yochium, Jennifer Penn, Ron Edwards, and Rev. Corey Yake

Starry Nights is one of the programs that WOLA holds for the public throughout the year to show their love for community as part of their commitment to “Love God and love people.”

The Fall River Valley Community Choir treated the people of Burney to a taste of the Kingdom of Heaven as they performed the Christmas cantata The First Noel at Burney Presbyterian Church on Saturday afternoon December 16.

Fall River Valley Community Choir performing at Burney Presbyterian Church

The 40 minute cantata, written by Russell Mauldin, contains and arrangement of classic carols, hymns and favorite Christmas songs of the season. The songs and narration celebrate the birth of Jesus as messiah and king.

Reverend Penni Elaine Scarbrough, the pastor the hosting church, welcomed everyone and began the program with a prayer.

Opening with a prayer

The performance was directed by Reverend Alison Maki and Ruth Strauch with musical accompaniment by flautist Theron Canrall, pianist Linda Gulbransen, guitarist Jean Rodgers, and  Goldie Christofferson  and Nate Strauch on chimes. Nate Strauch read the narration.

Rev. Maki introduced the choir and gave a brief introduction. The cantata began with “The Birthday of a King Medley” containing arrangements of “For unto us a Child is Born,” “Sing We Now of Christmas,” and “The Birthday of a King.”

Angelic Voices

Then followed six selections: “Glory, Glory in the Highest;” “The First Noel;” “Jesus Born on This Day;” “Light of the Stable,” with “Angels We Have Heard on High;” “In the First Light;” and “Jesus at the Center.”

Reverend Bill Myers sang a solo for Glory, Glory in the Highest.”

Following “Jesus at the Center,” narrator Nate Strauch said a prayer celebrating the birth of Jesus, and then the cantata concluded with a grand “Birthday of the King Finale.”

After the conclusion of the finale, Rev. Maki led the entire congregation as they sang “Silent Night.”

Rev. Maki thanked everyone for coming and announced that there would be a second public performance of the cantata at Intermountain Evangelical Free Church in McArthur the following day at 4 p.m. That concert would also include a performance of six songs by the Fall River Valley Community Children’s Choir.

The concert was performed in remembrance of Melanie Kerns. Mrs. Kerns was a beautiful singer and wonderful pianist. She was also a pillar of the Intermountain Community who was active in both the Fall River Methodist Church and the Burney Presbyterian Church.

After the concert, the audience and choir mixed and mingled as they shared fellowship and enjoyed refreshments.
