Thursday, May 5th, was the time for a great dinner at the Grange for Cinco De Mayo!! I was talking with Bonnie Alvarez as she was preparing the food along with Nena Creasey and everyone loves their cooking specialties. They made a delicious New Mexican Casserole!! There were Pork Tamales, Spanish Rice, Refried Beans, Fresh Salad, Chips & Salsa and the desserts!! There was such a nice variety, and I loved the Fiesta Cake!! To say nothing of the cobbler and cheesecake and such a tempting assortment of delicious desserts!! Chris Magarian and Laura Mayten also helped serve dinner.

Ruth Bain or Carol Sharp had tickets, or you can stop by the Happy Camp Community Service District or Marble Mountain Gifts for tickets as well.

The proceeds of the dinner will go to the medical needs of Jay and Stella Clark. Jay was the principal of Happy Camp High School from 1973 until his retirement and has been elected the past few years to represent Happy Camp with the Siskiyou Union High School District which includes the Happy Camp school.

If you couldn’t make it, but want to help out the Clarks, donations will also be appreciated. But it was a great chance to enjoy a great dinner and visiting with friends and neighbors at the Happy Camp Grange on May 5th!
Thank you Ruth Bain and all the Grange workers!!16Col&Career_0252

  • For many Americans, Cinco de Mayo means enjoying Mexican food and probably a few margaritas as well. But Cinco de Mayo, which means May 5 in Spanish, is probably one of the most misunderstood Mexican holidays.
