A student salute

Students at Lillian Larsen School held their own Veterans Day tribute last Friday. Honored guests were veterans Robert Phillips, Keith Lay and Steve Cedillo. A color guard from Camp Roberts presented the flags, and students recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Principal Judy Bedell organized the event, which gave students a greater appreciation of the meaning of Nov. 11.

How to help typhoon victims

Our hearts go out to our friends and neighbors whose families are suffering from the disastrous typhoon in the Philippines. Locally, the Filipino-American Association of North County is accepting donations to purchase emergency supplies that will be sent out in aid packages. Checks may be made out to FAANC and mailed to Meth Vicente, P.O. Box 4480, Paso Robles, CA 93447. For information, leave a message for her at 805-237-1380.

Remembering a friend

My dear friend Gay Walker Garrison passed away Monday afternoon. For the past several years she was slipping away into a world where she could no longer share in our lives. She was bright and creative, and we had a lot of fun together with our families and friends. In the 1970s we began writing a column, "San Miguel by Lynne & Gay" in the Paso Robles papers, which we continued for about 10 years. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. She is missed.
