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.

Match Preview Jose Mourinho Antonio Conte Manchester United ChelseaThe significance of the FA Cup has diminished for England’s traditional ‘big clubs’ in recent years thanks to the influx of television money and the head-turning allure of contintental competition, but that won’t take the sheen off the the season’s closing showpiece between Manchester United and Chelsea on Saturday.The Premier League campaign has concluded and both teams are assured of their places in next season’s European competitions, but the FA Cup final is the last chance for both clubs to get their hands on a piece of silverware – something that would serve as a fitting final flourish for players and fans alike.The Red Devils narrowly came out on top when the sides last met in February, winning 2-1 at Old Trafford, but the Blues edged out as 1-0 victors at Stamford Bridge last November, so the teams are evenly matched, despite 11 points separating them in the league.Winning the famous competition is arguably of greater importance to the legacy of Antonio Conte, as the Italian coach looks to soften the blow of missing out on Champions League qualification. Indeed, it may even be his final act as Blues boss as speculation swirls around his future and he will be desperate to bid adieu in style.United have already booked their place in next season’s Champions League by finishing second in the league and, while that may be an improvement on his maiden campaign, Mourinho will surely be disappointed if he finishes his second term without a single trophy.last_img read more
