The Johnson Valley Community Center will be the meeting place of the Lucerne Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees on Wednesday, October 17, at 5:30 p.m.
Johnson Valley is in the LVUSD. Fiscal decisions made now will affect not only the future of the Schools, but possibly your future property tax bill. Everyone is invited, more details to come.
Ladies Salad Luncheon
• It’s here! The Ladies Salad Luncheon at the Johnson Valley Community Center is next
Saturday, September 22, at noon. We bring our favorite salad or dessert dishes (with the recipe, too) and enjoy some good food and conversation with neighbors and friends.
The Salad Luncheon has been held on Saturday several times now, so our weekenders are able to attend. Everyone welcome, no charge.
Johnson Valley Oktoberfest dinner
• Tickets are selling now for the Johnson Valley Oktoberfest dinner, so call me ASAP at 760-364-2646, or come to the Saturday Breakfast at the JV Community Center between 7-10 a.m. and I will have tickets for you.
The annual celebration is on Saturday, Oct. 6. The patio Biergarten will open at 4:30 p.m. offering a fine selection of German and domestic beers, three special Johnson Valley brews just for this occasion (made with JVIA Well water), German wine, soft drinks or bottled water. Enjoy big pretzels just out of the oven and honey mustard Brussels sprouts on toothpicks.
Your dinner ticket is only $7 per person, and you can’t beat this for the money. Between 6:00-7:00 take your choice from the buffet of German-style dishes, including tasty brats, potatoes and sauerkraut. For dessert, German chocolate cake of course.
This event grows in popularity each year, drawing guests from all over – don’t miss it, it’s worth the trip!
Dale Haverty passes from Cancer
• Dale Haverty is at rest after her long standoff with cancer. She died in hospice care early on Tuesday morning.
She was born in Canada in 1942. When she moved to Johnson Valley in 2000, she was a member of a Yucca Valley choral singing group. Dale loved to dance at the Landers Moose Lodge and the Johnson Valley parties, and was an expert line dancer.
She loved to travel. She also loved horses and trailing around Johnson Valley backroads with friends when the opportunity arose.
Her accomplishments as an artist are not widely known, but she did skilled charcoal drawings of animals and specialized in portraits of pets. I treasure her picture of my beloved cat Tigby.
As her health slowed her down she gradually gave up these pursuits, but she could and did make it to the Community Center to join the pinochle group and the Bunco players, and to her last days she still loved to practice polishing up her pool game.
At her own request there will be no memorial service.
