-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- SUNDAY, MAY 9, 1993 — 3 Get your applications in now for Ukiah's Hometown Festival Applications for the Hometown Festival Parade are now available. Those who want to enter the parade should contact the Ukiah Chamber of Commerce immedi- . ately at 462-4705 or Charles Kelly at 485-7709 to get an application. Entries can be as eclectic as human imagination allows but should be in good taste. If possible, entries should play off this year's Hometown Festival theme of "Small-Town Pride: Building on Diversity." "We won't be awarding prizes this year, but every participant will get a ribbon," said Kelly, chairman of the parade. "We want to encourage a feeling that everyone wins just by participating." Entries cost $10 apiece, and entrants need to furnish proof of insurance. The busiest Hometown Festival in years is set for May 28-31, presented by the Chamber and the Ukiah Daily Journal, according to Elizabeth Christian, executive vice president of the hcamber. Masonite Corp. is the festival's primary sponsor. Century 21/Les Ryan, Realtors is also a major sponsor. "We've had tremendous response from a large variety of community groups," said Christian, executive vice president of the Chamber. "Almost every hour of the four-day festival offers at least two options of fun events for young and old." The schedule includes everything from the traditional Main •Street Wine Tasting on Friday night to comedy sketches and music in the park on Sunday evening, courtesy of the Ukiah Players, the Ukiah Symphony and the Civic Light Opera. A rich menu of other activities is also on tap, including daylong events at every major shopping center in town during the four-day period, a golf and tennis tournament, the Magical Moonshine Theatre, the action-packed Potter Valley rodeo and related events, a huge book sale by Friends of the Library, a skate race, the Main Street Faire, and, of course, the Memorial Day Parade down State Street. A Daily Journal special tabloid will be included in subscribers' papers on Wednesday, May 26, with complete scheduling information. The advertising deadline for the tabloid is May 17. Several thousand extra copies of the tabloid will be printed for distribution during the Festival's many events. The theme of this year's festival, "Small-Town Pride: Building on Diversity," is in celebration of Ukiah's recently being named the best small town in California by author Norman Crampton. County kids overdue for immunizations Mendocino County tuts a long way to go to reach the nation's year 2000 hfealth objectives for toddler immunizations, according to Linda Brawley, immunization coordinator for Mendocino County Public Health Department "We are very concerned," Brawley said. "Half of our two-yeaM>ld children are overdue for immunizations and could fall victim to preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough." For the past 10 years the Health Department had held a special campaign each May to get toddlers into their doctor's office or clinic for needed immunizations. California rates have improved from 36 percent to 50 percent of toddlers up-to-date since Toddler Immunization Month began. This is still significantly lower than the objective of 90 percent up- to-date, which is a national goal for the year 2000, Brawley said. "There just is no reason why Half of our two-year-old children are overdue for immunizations and could fall victim to preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough." —Linda Brawley county immunization coordinator every child in this community is not properly immunized," she continued. "Parents can take them to any physician or clinic or HMO or can bring them to our low cost health department clinics. To make the impact we need, everyone involved with children will have to help us get the message out to parents." Work is under way now to develop a plan to make a bigger impact on toddler immunization levels through a community effort. "Unprotected toddlers are an easy target for diseases with serious consequences," she warns. "We must get them protected!"
