m r arrives FOR THE ISLANDER Take a glimpse inside life on Catalina Island at the Annual Avalon Home Tour, benefitting the Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation. This year's tour will be held On Oct. 21. If you've ever wondered what living in Avalon is like, this one-of-a-kind tour is your chance to find out. The Avalon Home Tour is a self-paced look into six of the most unique homes on the Island. In addition to touring six homes, guests will also enjoy a welcome reception with light refresh- ments at the historic Tuna Club of Avalon, which is located at 100 St. Catherine Way. This year's tour features one of the oldest and most creative struc- tures on the Island - a real boat that was converted into a home in the 1920s. Guests are encouraged to check- in any time between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to enjoy adequate time at each of the homes. Transportation to homes is included, although guests may choose to walk from home to home. For tickets or more informa- tion, call 310-510-5160.

Photo by Burney Ramming First wall for new shed went up last week BY BURNEY RAMMING FOR THE ISLANDER Six members of the Avalon Lions Club began the framing process for a replacement mainte- nance shed at the Haypress recre- ation area on Saturday, Sept. 30. The previous shed burned down in the tragic May 2007 fire. The new shed will house mow- ers, garden tools and supplies to keep the Haypress recreation area safe and looking good. The Avalon Lions Club hopes to have the shed finished by November of this year. The Haypress playground equipment near the pond has been closed. The old wooden equipment is no longer safe for anyone to play on. There is a red danger fence surrounding the equipment to remind everyone to stay off of it. The Avalon Lions Club is working with the Catalina Conservancy on replacement playground equipment that will be safe, fun, ADA compliant, and low maintenance. The Avalon Lions Club would like to thank the Santa Catalina Island Company Pebbly Beach Building Supply for the discount on the maintenance shed build- ing materials. Lion Dave Zeller of Zeller Construction donat- ed his truck to haul the heavy building materials to Haypress. Lion John Regalado of Catalina Yamaha, Lion Dave Thompson of Dave Thompson Construction, Lion Steve Bray of the Avalon Fire Department, John Macktal of Catalina Easy Go and Retired Lion Burney Ramming supplied the labor to erect the walls of the shed. Also helping, for community service credit, were Avalon High School Seniors Tommy Oddone and Alejandro Meza. Another work party to finish the roof, door and siding will happen soon. The Avalon Lions Club is a part of the largest community service club organization in the world. The members of the Avalon Club are committed to serving our community with time and talents. Should you know of a com- munity need that the Lions Club could take care of, contact Dave Grear, current Lions Club presi- dent, at 858-271-0725. Haypress workers take a break after the first day of work.
