Etcetera - 01/31/11


Walla Walla High School's annual Conspiracy of Hope Benefit Concert will showcase a variety of student performances, the Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review noted on Jan. 28.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10 and Feb. 11 in the Wa-Hi Auditorium, 800 Abbott Road. A $5 donation will be collected at the door.

The student production will benefit the Dave Meyer Foundation and S.O.S Health Services of Walla Walla.

Dave Meyer Foundation was created to help athletes in low-income families with expenses associated with sports participation such as equipment and camp fees.

S.O.S Health Services is a free medical clinic that serves the greater Walla Walla Valley area. It is a walk-in family medicine/urgent-care clinic to service the uninsured.

More details about the event are available from Arch McHie, Wa-Hi ASB coordinator, via e-mail at

If the kids who ride the bus in the Walla Walla School District are a bit late arriving in the morning or getting home later in the day on Feb. 8, it's for a reason, the Jan. 28 Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review online reported.

The District 140 Transportation Department has scheduled mandatory school bus evacuations a week from Tuesday during the a.m. and p.m. bus routes.

For more information, call Mark L. Clark, transportation coordinator/driver trainer at 509-526-1850.

This opportunity to make a difference has several benefits.

You can clear out that unused exercise equipment that's just hanging around collecting dust, and your donation to Lincoln High School would be thankfully accepted to augment its student fitness programs.

Erik Gordon, a teacher at Lincoln, is requesting exercise equipment for the school's physical education classes.

"We currently have a handful of jump ropes and a half dozen random aerobic workout weights," he said in the Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review.

We would be grateful for the donation. Free weights, exercise balls, yoga mats, cardio equipment, random "as-seen-on-TV" equipment -- we are not picky."

To make donations, contact Erik at 527-3083 .
