Feeling good


Lots of fun costumes

Passing through the haunted house was pretty scary.

There was lots of candy for the kids and popcorn, hot chocolate, and cupcakes served by Fire District personnel. All in all, young and old had an exciting time.

Seniors celebrate Halloween with costume contest

After a delicious lunch of spaghetti with blood sauce, spooky spinach, scary salad, gruesome garlic bread and witches brew prepared by Kim and Laura, four souls emerged to take part in a costume contest.

Costume Contest at the Senior Nutrition Center

Mary Francis Unterreiner was dressed as Victoria Barkley from the TV western Big Valley. Linda Colvin came as a Pioneer Woman. Sharon dressed as a Witch, and Vicky McAbee as a Patriot. Bruce Hill (not pictured) also joined the contest at the last minute as Dr. Dreidel.

Assembled diners voted for best costume by applause. Senior Center Director Diane and Kim Stier judged the volume and deemed Pioneer Woman the winner of a $20 award donated for the occasion by Mary Unterreiner.

Interact Students perform community service at Bella Vista Farms

From Bob Jehn:

Underscoring their penchant for community service, members of the Interact Clubs of Burney and Fall River High Schools spent Sunday, October 28 performing chores at the only animal rescue center in Shasta County.

Interact students from Fall River and Burney after four hours of hard work at Bella Vista Farms in Cottonwood.

Fall River Interact member Jessica Mayer found a friend at the animal rescue center in Cottonwood.

Sixteen students descended upon Bella Vista Farms in Cottonwood to muck out animal stalls and clear brush for fire protection supervised by Interact Advisors Bob Jehn, Willie Rodriquez, and Brenda Rodriguez. Burney High School Science teacher Mark Harner wielded a chain saw while students dragged branches and weeds into burn piles to be burned later this fall.

Owners and operators of the facility, Chic Miller and her husband Bob, ages 71 and 80, respectively, were very grateful for the help as they depend on only grant funding and private donations to support the operation. The facility houses over 100 animals that have been abandoned, abused, or injured, and as Chic says, “We don’t adopt out – the animals live out their lives at Bella Vista Farms.”

Chic does much of the veterinary work at the facility, and has written a book about caring for animals.

The Interact Club of Fall River High School has also made monetary contributions to the facility to help support the work that Chic and Bob do. After the latest contribution from the Interactors Chic said, “Oh my gosh, I can’t thank you all enough…I can’t tell you how much I love you kids.”
