THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Lifestyle THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 1998 — 5 Canned food avalanche helps Food Bank Over 6,000 pounds of nonperishable food donations were contributed by school children to help families in need of food assistance as part of the fourth annual "Classroom Canned Food Avalanche." Sponsored by the Savings Bank of Mendocino County with help from local businesses, the drive features contests among classrooms and schools in different grade levels based on a measure of pounds per student. The contributed food goes to the Ukiah Community Center Food Bank for distribution. Determining the top kindergarten through second grade class winner was such a close call that awards were made to two classes: a Calpella preschool class taught by Sylvia Byczynski; and Oak Manor's kindergarten class taught by Pat Glasscock, who is retiring this year after 30 years of service. The two classes each received a supply of special markers donated by Mendo- Lake Office Products. The rest of the prizes in the local contest were also designed for delight, coming in the form of pizza parties from Amerigo's House of Pizza. Ukiah High won the honors as the top high school in the county, with two Ukiah High classes also winning pizza par• ties in a close race among local • area high school classes. Charlie Roberts' class won again • this year along with the students in Bill Brunemeyer's class, jointly contributing over 700 pounds of the total 1,074 ' pounds collected at Ukiah High. Likewise Eagle Peak's top classroom, taught by Linda ' Weaver, won the middle school pizza party and helped Eagle Peak win the honors for the top ' junior high collection. The top elementary school \ contribution was again made ! by Hopland, although Kathy Barbara Vmconctllos/Thc Daily Journal Above, Trish Warren's Special Ed class at Eagle Peak had a pizza party after winning the Avalanche of Cans food drive for their school. Andy Sessums borrowed his neighbor's wagon and went door to door collecting 101 cans for the drive. Below, Patricia Glasscock's kindergarten class at Oak Manor were the winners of the primary division of the Avalanche of Cans food drive with was held county wide. Guilfoyle's class this year had some competition to overcome in winning the third to sixth grade pizza party, maintaining a four year winning streak for Guilfoyle's fifth and sixth grade students. Each of the three school winners received a $30 gift certificate from The Mendocino Book Company. "This year's drive had some delightful surprises," said volunteer coordinator Noreen Carnahan. "Two of the classroom winners were special education classes, one of which went out and collected food from their neighbors." "Oak Manor Elementary dramatically increased their donation over last year's," she said, "and a number of schools had participation rates of more than three-fourths of their classes. "This drive is certainly a Graduates at the recent TOPS Area Recognition days in Redding, are left to right- Ohma Elmer, Mary Burbury, Myrl Harpe and Gert Soeth.

Twenty-two members of the Ukiah club journeyed to Redding to celebrate their success, and also to honor other long time KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly). Midge Rhoads was given a special lavalier for 20 years at or below her goal weight. Also hon- ored were Mary Facklam for 23 years, Ethel Jones for 16 years, Sandy Fox for 6 years, Ada Bettcher for four years and Rosalie Tibbetts for three years. Of the members who attend regularly, half of them have achieved their goal weight and maintained it.

"Local companies make very significant contributions to an effort that gives children a chance to experience the joy of giving to those in need." "Unfortunately, food donations are needed to meet the increasing local need for emergency food. Fortunately, this drive makes a big difference," Murphy said.
