Students appreciates teacher opening up contest

Editor, Ceres Courier,

I am writing to thank Mr. Cavenaugh (math teacher at Central Valley HIgh School) for letting us students be part of the math competition. I always wanted to be part of the Math Club since I was a freshmen. Even though the Math Club was started in March, a month before the competition, I am sure everyone in the team at CVHS enjoyed being on the team and will be happy to return to the club next year and win some awards.

Thank you once again Mr. Cavenaugh for making this happen and bringing math club to Central Valley High School.

Jyoti Kanda,

In support of Klein

Editor, Ceres Courier,

As a 30-year Stanislaus County employee in the Auditor-Controller's Office, this coming election will produce the sixth Auditor-Controller I've worked with.

It has been a pleasure to share my working years with the employees of the Auditor's office, one of them being Lauren Klein, who is running in the June primary election for the position of Auditor-Controller.

Lauren has been a contributing leader in the Auditor-Controller's Office since 2005 and has shown both a strong work ethic and competent skills. There is no replacement for county work experience, which Lauren possesses, to successfully fulfill the duties of the position of Auditor-Controller.

Firemen helped at camp

Editor, Ceres Courier,

On behalf of the Recreation Division, I would like to send out a huge thank you to the Ceres Fire Department for their 10th year of support and dedication at our Tiny Tot Baseball Camp.

Fifty pre-schoolers and their parents came out to participate this year and had a blast. The firefighters made time in their day to coach and guide each of the camper, providing them with an unforgettable and enriching experience.

Thank you so much, you are a terrific group of people and we so appreciate your help!

Cambria Pollinger,

Recreation Supervisor,

Clean-up effort due to volunteers

Editor, Ceres Courier,

On Saturday, April 17 the city of Ceres Code Enforcement Division, as part of the Take Pride in Ceres campaign, hosted its third annual Community Clean-Up Event. Thanks to the hard work of community volunteers of all ages and a city of Ceres employee volunteer, we collected and hauled away approximately 2.5 tons of garbage and weeds.

The volunteers arrived at the parking lot of the Ceres Community Center where they were offered coffee and donuts which had been donated by Ceres businesses. The hard-working volunteers divided into groups and set out to do their part to clean up the city. The volunteers pulled and cut down weeds and brush and removed tires and trash from alleyways.

After all of their hard work, the volunteers were treated to lunch, which also had been donated by the generous businesses in this community.

The Ceres Code Enforcement Division would like to give a special thank you to the following businesses for their extremely generous and continued support of this community during our clean-up event: Cost Less Foods, Food-4-Less, Glazed Donuts, Richland Market, Starbucks at Hatch and Mitchell, Walmart and West Mark. We would also like to thank the following volunteers whom without the success of the clean-up would not have been possible. Ceres Cub Scout pack 132, pack leader Jennifer Rushman, Zackery McCleskey, Marcus Robinson, Brian Winchester, Mark Winchester, Vicki Robinson, Kathina Rocha, Jordan Curran, Kierra Calip, Mike Brinton and the many others whose names I did not get.

Frank Alvarez,

Code Enforcement Officer,

City of Ceres
