Proceeds from breakfast to help Haiti

Laguna Beach High School students will be raising money to help the earthquake victims in Haiti.

The ASB Leadership Group will be cooking scrambled eggs, sausage and pancakes in the outdoor quad area before school Thursday.

The breakfast will cost $5 and includes juice.


About 30 kids have signed up to help with the breakfast.

“We hope to serve 200 or more breakfasts and raise over $1,000," said Sandy Jones, ASB accounts clerk.

“We have been offered a few donated items of pancake mix and syrup, and the ASB will pick up the rest."

Parents can get a Valentine’s night out


The Boys & Girls Club’s Breakers Keystone Club will offer parents an inexpensive “babysitter" for kids 4 and older on Valentine’s Day so they can enjoy a romantic evening together.

The club will host a fun-filled party for the kids from 5 to 11 p.m. at the Main Branch, for just $30 per child, that will include Valentine’s Day crafts, group games, gym time, Wii tournaments, table games and access to the exclusive Teen Center for an evening movie and popcorn.

The Valentine’s Day Parents Night Out will be facilitated by six high school students under the supervision of two adult Boys & Girls Club staff, who are both CPR/First Aid certified with more than 25 years of combined experience working with youth.

All proceeds from the event will go toward sending four teens to the 2010 National Keystone Conference in Pittsburgh in March.

Keystone Clubs are designed to help teen members become more productive citizens and leaders.

Keystone members elect their own officers and implement their own activities in three focus areas, community service, academic success and career preparation.

Dinner is included and club membership is not required for this special night.

‘Seussical the Musical’ will be at Thurston

The Park Avenue players will present “Seussical the Musical" at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Thurston Middle School’s Black Box Theatre.

Directed by Mark Dressler, the show is a compilation of Seuss’ classic children’s stories that will highlight many of memorable characters including Jojo, Gertrude, Amazing Mayzie, Horton the Elephant, and, of course, the mischievous Cat in the Hat.

“People of all ages will be drawn to this show because we all hold a special place in our hearts for these imaginative stories," said music director Roxanna Ward.

“But they will also be delighted with the music which features some really beautiful compositions."

Performances will be at 4 p.m. Thursday, and 4 and 7 p.m. Feb. 5 and 6.

Pizza and baked goods will be sold prior to all performances.

Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for adults and may be purchased at the door 75 minutes prior to showtime.
