CHS gov’t: Courtyard Sale, Senior Citizens Dance

       Coronado High School student government is sponsoring two upcoming events - a first-time Courtyard Sale Saturday, March 3; and the annual Senior Citizens Dance Friday, March 9.
       According to Student Body President Drew MacMillan, the sale is a fundraiser to defray expenses from the dance, which will feature live big-band music and is free and open to all senior citizens.

Jordan Kadzikow-ski, a Coronado High student who takes classes at the NVision dance studio on Garden of the Gods Road, demonstrates a waltz step to members of student government this week, to help them get ready for the Senior Citizens Dance March 9.

       Details on each follow:
  • Courtyard Sale, March 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Coronado campus, in the courtyard outside the gymnasium. “We're trying to get Coronado and the rest of the community to donate items people would like to purchase, and we will try to sell them,” MacMillan said. “If they don't sell, we'll take them to Goodwill.”
           For more information, call the school at 328-3600 and ask for student advisor Dianna Fitzsimmons.
  • Senior Citizens Dance, March 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. For the second year, it will be at the Westside Community Center, 1628 W. Bijou St., rather than at the school. “We believe it [the center] is more convenient for our Westside senior citizens,” MacMillan said.
           Music will be by Rock's Big Band.
           Reservations are not necessary, and no one will be carded. “We're not worried about anyone being a certain age,” MacMillan said. “We will have snacks, cake and a lot of dancing fun!”
           To prepare for the event, members of student government were getting lessons this week on ballroom dancing.
