He had his daily friends as did I, coffee pals for him, ham radio friends for me. He had a sort of lop-sided grin, that beats a smile by a mile. Smiles have different meanings, a grin is the real thing. He was a top notch volunteer in- cluding ringing bells at Christmas. We met, from time to time, at places such as the bakery,Burger King, Council meet- ings and coffee with cops. We often saw him at community events, where we would give each other a grin and a wave. Often we’d chat for awhile, usu- ally humorous or bantering. He loved to kid me for just about anything. I will Deadline for April 20th issue of the Desert Messenger is WED.

I am thrilled to see that the Focused Future of Quartzsite includes reuniting our children with the rest of our com- munity at the local library. Thank you everyone involved with re- designing our library for the sake of in- ter-generational families like mine who love sharing energy and ideas amidst movies, books, and magazines! The following words are a perfect way A���� 6, 2011 sheer joy of the task at hand. Such was the case of approaching the Quilt Guild in making a Arizona Centennial Quilt for a raffl e item. Barbara Williams was given the task to head the project and oh my, she literally ran with it. I simply outlined a rough draft of the things that make Quartzsite unique and instantly she was thinking of certain individuals who were best suited for the task. At this time I would like to thank each for us to start each day, as we focus on the future of Quartzsite: “Now, we need to go about the business of the town and keep things moving in a positive direction” - Jerry Lukkasson, Quartzsite Town Council Member. Ask ourselves, how can we maximize our potential, then begin our day focusing on the future of Quartzsite. Hygeia Halfmoon, Quartzsite AZ CENTENNIAL THANK YOU Often times when organizing various events or projects we are taken back by the willingness of individuals to take hold and complete it with enthusiasm and will be selling tickets for the Quilt until February of 2012, and will be drawn at the fi nale of our Centennial Celebration. Thanks also to the RC Pilots for their display at the air fi eld during the ATV Parade. This group of pilots are so willing to share their fl ying knowledge with anyone who wishes to become in- volved. They had a beautiful display of war planes and photos, along with a bit of Arizona’s History, an article on Frank Luke Jr. Sharing with one another in the knowledge of our Community and its events makes for a well rounded Town. K & B Tools and Tarps was gracious in donating a canopy for the event.
