Victory in Europe Day, generally known as V-E Day, VE Day, or simply V Day was the public holi- day celebrated on 8 May 1945 (7 May in Common- wealth realms) to mark the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany's un- conditional surrender of its armed forces. London served his combat duty in England for 8 months as a Staff Sergeant in the Army Air Force as Engineer Gunner. London was chosen to be a representative of the United States, one of the Allied nations and Commonwealth coun- tries that fought alongside Britain. Through the efforts of his grandson, who lives in London, the UK government is making the contribution to- wards the cost of going to London for the VE 70 commemorations. ����� | S������ R��� B���C�� �� ����� | S������ R��� B���C�� Local youth "Turn up the music" during Young Americans workshop Blythe, CA - Quartzsite & Eherenberg youth participat- ed in a three-day Music Outreach Worshop April 17-19, 2015 at Palo Verde College in Blythe, concluding with a spectacular show for the community. The Young Americans (YA) is a non-profi t educational, performance institute that was founded in 1962 by suc- cessful Hollywood music composer Milton C. Anderson. Anderson's philosophy remains unchanged today, "To provide talented young student performers with educa- tion in music, dance, performing arts and teaching. Then support these members as they teach and inspire younger students throughout the world." This world-renowned performance group with a cast of 40 Young Americans helped over 100 youngsters enjoy a memorable work- shop containing three days of singing, vocal technique, dancing, stage presence, microphone usage and many other technical aspects of performing. Parents are hop- ing to bring the YA workshop to Quartzsite next year.
