Celebrating Orland grads

Graduating high school is an important milestone in any person's life.

The seniors at Orland High School recently achieved that milestone, being given their diplomas and allowed to move their tassel to the other side of their cap.

About 156 students were given their diplomas at the ceremony.

The students will now go on to either college, a technical school or straight into having a job.

Whatever path in life they take, best of luck to them. This is a crucial period in their lives, and making the right decision is important.

Gun show helps VFW

The Veterans of Foreign Wars needs all of the support it can get.

It got just that recently when the VFW held its first gun show at the Willows Veteran Memorial Hall.

About 57 vendors turned out for the show, which was also a fundraiser that generated about $3,000 for the veteran organization's various activities.

"It's fantastic we had a good turnout," said Dave Emery, VFW member and the event's organizer.

Let's hope the VFW can continue to be successful in its fundraising efforts.
