“CRIMES” COMING TO CVHS
Crescenta Valley High School Drama Department will be presenting the play Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley. The play is directed by Lynn De Young, who last year directed 12 Angry Women. De Young is also an accomplished playwright who two years ago directed and wrote her original play Loser Group.

Korean Barbecue Luncheon Planned
Tickets are now on sale from the CVHS Instrumental Music Department for its second annual Outdoor Family Korean BBQ luncheon. The event is a fundraiser for the Crescenta Valley Instrumental Music Foundation, which supports the work of the Department.
The inaugural luncheon last year marked the first time Korean parents had ever led (or so actively participated in) an instrumental music department fundraiser. Chairs Anna Choe and Janice Lee are recruiting dozens of volunteer parents (both Korean and non-Korean) who will help with everything from soliciting donations for raffle prizes and drinks to be served, to setting up or selling tickets at the event, to preparing or serving the food.
There will be a gourmet Korean BBQ meal including Kalbi beef, Korean noodles and rice, salad, a beverage, and dessert. The CVHS Jazz Band and auditioned student (rock) groups will perform.
Prizes to be raffled off throughout the event include tickets to performances at the Hollywood Bowl and Mark Taper Forum; free professional teeth whitening; a Tony Hawk Shred Wii game; and the grand prize of a Disneyland Park-Hopper package for two.
The Outdoor Family Korean BBQ luncheon takes place on Saturday, March 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the CVHS quad. Tickets are on sale through March 14 from any Instrumental Music student or through the Instrumental Music Department telephone (818) 249-5871. The $10 ticket includes the full gourmet meal, one free raffle ticket and free live musical entertainment.
