Thank You For Making "The Dance" A Success, Again by Bill Fink Despite the weather, the hearty souls of Julian and the hardiest of the down the hill crowd made "The Dance", in its third year, the most successful of all. Great thanks are extended by the Sons of the American Legion to all who contributed. The merchants and individuals of Julian and surrounding areas that bought banners exceeded previous years sales by a healthy margin. Without the sale of banners, "The Dance" would be an entirely different event. The fellows that were hanging them were scratching their heads figuring out where they all would go and commented on what a great problem to have. There were over four hundred people at any one time and paid attendance bears that out. While cold drink sales were down because of the weather, food sales were great. The effort by the Sons in creating the deep pit BBQ drew great comments. The deep pit seems to be a Legion tradition that finds favor with everyone. The Ladies Auxiliary reported good sales at the dessert table and great response to the raffle. Legion members were there as well and contributed like they always have. The art contest that produced a great logo, and silent auction, was also a success as all the work was bid on and sold. Toward the end of the evening, a couple from El Cajon commented on how thrilled they were with "The Dance" and the small town ambiance. In a show of support they purchased all the work that had failed to draw bids. In addition to the prize-winning entry by Bria Morgan, CoCo Leraas won the high bid award and The Julian News 3 Commercial O Residential g o Payment Options 24 Hour Emergency Service C~I ~i~ MG4SCheck-rAt~,,~ ..... ~iiiii,;, .... ~ L~JCOUHaL Ben Sulser, District Manager promptly contributed her check back to the Sons. For a second year in a row, Tony Thomas bid on and won the First Ticket. The First Ticket, is ticket number 1 from the first dance, and signed by The Working Cowboys. Tony owns it for another year. Thanks to Swingshift is in order for their great performance. There are reasons other than money, that a band of their caliber comes to this small burg to play for us. Glen and Jennifer Smith who opened the show, The Tribal Gypsy Dancers, Blake Rogers and (Jakes Mountain) with Mark Kinney sitting in, and the Sons own Rich Blosdale with Jerry Dillum, contributed their time by performing during Swingshifts' breaks. In some cases theses musicians dashed in to play before or after paying gigs to round out the show and entertain us. The Sons would also be remiss if appreciation wasn't expressed to the publisher Relationships Matter Over 60 years serving the community we live in. 765-0130 of this paper for the generous space provided in reporting this event. A big thank you Mike and Toni Menghini for having a great place to host the event and the willingness to do so. An event like "The Dance" happens for a reason. Above and beyond the great time everyone has, this event goes a long way in demonstrating how a community can care for itself. By supporting "The Dance", the community of Julian affirms the work of the Sons of the American Legion and allows them to continue in their charitable endeavors for another year. Finally, thank-you to the folks of Julian for your part in making "The Dance" successful and so much fun. See you next year.

Mixed Media Artists Plus "Red, White, And Blue" '~,L~_*__ June Jqb,d 2009: At The Olde Ramona Hotel Gallery ~[arun[ ~, In July, two multimedia artists share The Discovery Room at The Olde Ramona Hotel Galley. Margaret Rangel has been drawing all her life, from calendars on the blackboard in first grade to backdrops for high school plays. She now works in oil, watercolor, pastel, geode rock slabs, silk scarves, and polymer jewelry. Her art is on display at Southwestern Artists Association in Spanish Village, Balboa Park. Although she has taken Continuing Art Classes, she is mostly self-taught from books and lots of practice. Margaret is a member of four art groups. Robin Staton says she is "a watercolorist who likes to play in mixed media." She is currently dabbling in encaustic (bees wax), watercolor and rice paper. She has been a member of The Coachella Valley Watercolor Society for three years, and has won awards each year. Her work has been described as bold yet intricate. At present, she is working on two series, "Animals of the Cave" and 'Notable Flower." Her petroglyphs are generally watercolor collage with rice paper and mixed media which contains acrylic, oil, sand, shells, paper, moss, and canvas on hand-made birch panel. Her watercolor flowers employ tea, coffee, often musical notation, and occasionally primitive symbols, Middle East signs or musical notes. In college, Robin studied watercolor with a Native American instructor; in Algiers; she belonged to an art group of teachers from five different countries. Robin believes "...the melody of an artist forever sings through his/her work." In the Featured Artist Room, members present "Red, White and Blue,"a tribute to the Fourth of July Holiday, and to those whose sacrifice keeps that day alive. A reception for all the artists will be held Saturday, July 11 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at The Olde Ramona Hotel Gallery, 845 Main St., Ramona.
