All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial Monthly Movie Nights To Begin At Wynola Farms Marketplace Fans of movies, fun, food and the community are invited to Monthly Movie Nights in Wynola. The merchants and business owners of Wynola Farms Marketplace will begin hosting a free movie night the third Friday of every month, beginning this month. On Friday, June 18th, the blockbuster animated epic "Avatar" will be shown. This will be a fun time for all, with this PG-13 entertainment filling a 10 foot screen, complete with surround-sound, beginning at 8:00pro Through September, a different family-friendly (now accepting suggestions) movie will be shown at Wynola Farms Marketplace, outside on the patio between the marketplace main building and Mountain Beadworks. Beginning in October, they will be moving the show indoors. The movies are free and everyone will be treated to complimentary popcorn. The schedule of upcoming movies will be available soon. As a special bonus, for opening night, the Sons of the American Legion will be on hand selling Hot Dogs and Brats, soda and chips, and other movie munchies to help benefit the SAL's ongoing charitable efforts in the community. In the future plan to arrive early, 6:00 pm, and participate in a community potluck, featuring your favorite salad, main dish or treat. Food and drinks will also be available for purchase. Orfila Winery and Julian Hard Cider will be selling their signature beverages, and all businesses at Wynola Farms Marketplace will be open until the movie begins. Bring a flashlight, and your own chairs, cushions or blankets for these evenings of family fun. The gathering for the potluck will start at 6:00 pm, and the movie will begin at 8:00. For additional information, call Patricia McConnell (Mountain Top Antiques and Cedar Works) at 760-765-1139. All the businesses of Wynola Farms Marketplace have generously made these events a reality: Mountain Beadworks, (open every day, featuring hand selected beads, classes and activities) Julian Hard Cider, American to the Core continued on page 11 ....

Highway 78 765-0370 iiii i!iii iii i approximately $100.00 each and so, we need $6,000.00 per grade in order to buy every student a textbook at each grade level (9th - 12th) and the teacher materials to accompany it. Astoundingly, we have been able to raise $18,000.00 out of our goal amount of $24,000.00 thanks to the following remarkably generous donors: The American Legion with $6,000.00, Fred and Katie McNorton (of Ramona Coldwell Banker) with $7,000.00, the Sons of the American Legion with $2,276.00 (breakfast fundraiser), the Julian Triangle Club, The Women's Auxiliary (dinner fundraiser), Mrs. Eileen Tellam, The Julian Pie Co., Poway Toyota with $250.00, and Shirley Schuessler. Thank you so much! Every little bit counts and every donation matters greatly; because of these funds, we are well on our way to meeting our goal. We are going to be able to purchase three out of the four class sets of textbooks needed by the end of this school year with Pearson/Prentice Hall and hopefully raise the rest of the funds during the summer and purchase the next set of classroom textbooks to have them ready for students to use during the fall of August 2010. These new textbooks will last us several years and will bring us up-to-date with the rest of the nation's curriculum. Students will now be able to complete their homework at home from books that are in excellent condition and the entire textbook will be online as well, so they can access their textbook from any place that has the internet with their student account. The school will have the textbooks online and the library has agreed to help us by allowing students to access their student account to access their textbook online as well. Not only will students be able to access their textbook online to be able to read and view the short stories, poems, and excerpts to novels; but they will also be able to view mini videos based on the stories, see authors giving accounts on the background information of their stories, view historical context, look up the vocabulary with pictures and framework, see grammar in a new technological perspective, and they will be able to submit their homework to me via email or from their online account. It truly is amazing where education is headed in this day and age and we will finally be able to be in there competitively and technologically. It is exciting to see what our students will have access to and how much this will indeed improve their academic performances. Again, as you can see every donation has indeed made a huge difference and giant impact. Mrs. Wylie's freshman english class. Donald F. Duncan introduced the yo-yo in 1929. The toy was based on a weapon used by 16th century Filipino hunters. We still have $6,000.00 to go, but kids' education be the best and proceeds will go to the pu ase I am confident that we will be able most enriching one available - of new English textbooks and the to raise this money together - those big schools have nothing other half will go to the American we, as a community, can achieve on us.
