Happy Camp Basketball Homecoming was Friday night. Posters both for the spirit week competition “dress up themes,” and for the students running for royalty, decorated the walls. Butte Valley teams came to Happy Camp for the games.
Sammi Jo Goodwin and Sterling Conrad were the past year royalty who kept us in suspense until they selected Daniela Sanchez for Homecoming Queen and Brent Boykin for Homecoming King. The freshman candidates were Rosie Conrad escorted by Brandon Tripp and Cayla Hammon escorted by West Timbrook. The Sophomore candidates were Kassandra Polmateer escorted by her big brother, Joey Polmateer and Corey Burnett with Summer Goodwin. The Junior Candidates were Daniela Sanchez escorted by Ronald Reed and Brent Boykin accompanied by Jessica Camarena. The Senior Candidates were Brandon Alexander accompanied by Mardee Towers, and Violet Stearns escorted by Sean Hacking.
With the devastation from earthquakes in Haiti which have been in the news recently the Campus Life Club wanted to use their cake raffle to collect a donation to the disaster victims. They invited the rest of the school population to join them in baking for the Quake Bake raffle. There was a great showing of delicious looking baked goods, cake and cookies, cupcakes and brownies. Some who wished to do more also made pledges for certain donations per point that the teams scored.
Over $400 was raised to help the people of Haiti.
Four energetic basketball games filled the Hokanson gym Friday.
There was a 6.5 magnitude earthquake off the coast of northern California! some from Happy Camp, and even as far as Nevada, felt a bit of the tremor, but not all recognized it. There was broken glass and items moved around or shelves emptied but nothing as major as building crashing in Eureka or neighboring towns. Residents were asked to stay indoors and electricity was out in many homes. Repairs were going ahead.
There were expected to be further aftershocks. Despite the magnitude of the quake which was over ten miles deep at Eureka, the community felt mostly shook-up and no tsunami warnings were issued.
