QUARTZ HILL – As a fitting tribute to the holiday season’s tradition of giving gifts, the Quartz Hill Woman’s Club has donated $600 to the Antelope Valley Committee on Aging for its Meals on Wheels program. At the recent Christmas luncheon meeting in the community hall at Lane Park, club president Ginny Beaver and member Marilyn Johnson presented the check to Harriett Davis, AVCOA’s executive director and also the club’s immediate past president. “This is wonderful and so appreciated since we still have a waiting list of 100 people for the delivered meals,” Davis said. “It takes a lot of money to fund the project and we almost never have enough. Every dime we get helps us take care of our shut-in citizens and make sure that they get at least one well-balanced meal a day.” Recent donations have also come in from the Boeing Co., $7,000; Boeing Employees Association, $10,000; and the Lancaster Rotary Club West, $3,000.

On Dec. 17, club members assisted with a children’s Christmas party at the park and the Saturday before, provided cookies for the Quartz Hill Town Center tree-lighting ceremonies. Entertainment for the holiday luncheon was provided by The Happy Singers. The all-senior group sang Christmas carols to keyboard accompaniment. The Oliver Handbell Choir of Lancaster United Methodist Church presented a Holiday Handbell Concert in the church’s new sanctuary.
