Chamber website wins gold award for best business site It's been just short of a year since the Catalina Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau launched a brand-new website, but all the hard work has paid off. Last month, the American Advertising Federation's Coastal California chapter hosted the 2017 ADDY awards luncheon. Searle Creative, the company hired by Chamber Secretary/ President and CEO: Jim Luttjohann, received gold awards for Consumer Website and Business-t0-Business Website. The Searle team nominated, which they developed, so win- ning a gold award is also a win for our chamber. The March 19 event was chaired by Mark Landon, chair of the American Advertising Awards Coastal California chap- ter. Tell your Island friends that our Catalina website is literally gold. The salt water valve replace- ment project has caused some minor disruption, but continues on track. The City of Avalon says they are on schedule with plans from last week. Excavation work along Front Street and upper Tremont will continue to expose the valves for replacement. The tentative schedule for salt water shut off next week, April 10, is as follows: Monday April 10: Clarissa to by Dixie Redfearn Metropole/Crescent to Tremont. Tuesday April 11: Tremont, Banning Drive, Upper Metropole and Country Club Drive. Tuesday April 11: Clemente to Eucalyptus/Tremont to Beacon Thursday April 14: Catalina to Metropole/Crescent to Beacon On Monday, April 10, offi- cials hope to .have the salt water service back on by 5 p.m. It is anticipated that Monday may go longer into the evening, however, this will prevent the need for shut off in those zones Tuesday for valves #1, 2 and 3. The Green Pier and Cabrillo Mole restrooms will be in ser- vice during any salt water shut off times. We will keep you posted on any updates, and be sure to check for more details, including a pdf map highlighting the expected areas impacted by each shut off. Claudia J. Davis writes, "I'm looking for a copy of a 1947 high school newspaper. "My father graduated from Avalon High School in 1947 and I was wondering if you had any copies of The High School Sugar Loaf, Volume XXI, Number 35, dated Thursday, June 26, 1947. I have an old photocopy of Page 10 which has photos of the graduat- ing students and I was curious if there was any more to it. Thank you for whatever information you can give me" Her father was Dean S. Davis. Davis can be reached at davisc34 Dixie Redfearn is editor of the Catalina Islander. From page t process. There were many reser- vations prior to the event on how well some of the individuals thought they could do but with some great guidance from Porschia and her staff, the group was able to take a nice piece of art work home with them. Special thanks goes out to Mayor Anni Marshall for joining us; the Sandtrap for providing lunch; Kathleen at the M Restaurant for the wonderful desserts; Yoli and Sana for the use of the Conference Room at the Metropole Market Place; and of course Porschia Denning for host- ing the wonderful afternoon. On April 19, the Prime-Timers will be going into the interior for an Airport In The Sky Tour and lunch. They look forward to seeing the green hills and the beautiful wild- flowers along the way.
