All Ages View-November


By Abbey Murphy This has been the most busy time in my entire life. It seems like my friends and I have been working non-stop on college applications, IB test sign ups, essays and SAT tests. I even had to miss out on being the MAMA Award girl because I had a monster math test the next day. Senior year was supposed to be easier than this! Oh well, there is always spring.

We have just finished an exciting waterpolo season and were so happy to share the MMC title for Varsity Girls! Way to go girls! So after sectionals on Nov 3, it is time so slow down a bit and start to get in to the fall baking season. I love to bake. Anything. Cookies, pies, pop tarts, you name it. I have been browsing recipes and can’t wait to get in the kitchen. Best of all, it is fun to share your baking. If you are worried about all the pies on Thanksgiving, start your day at the Turkey Trot at Legion park and get your 5K in.

This fall our Project Hope club has been doing many amazing project and we have helped contribute to projects in Haiti and Ghana. It is very rewarding to see these things happen. This month, the Modesto Peace life center has a fundraiser at the State Theatre on November 3 featuring the new CD release of the amazing Homegrown, with MoHi teacher Patrick Durr. We are so luck to have them headling this State show that raises money for the Modesto Peace Life Center. Get a great show and help a really important cause.

As it is dark so early and it will really feeling like winter soon, you can enjoy the all ages music here in Modesto. I love the local bands that play at Queen Bean, Deva and Barking Dog. It is so good to have places where we can go with our friends and our parents and have a good time and hang out. If you like a band, make sure you get a CD and tell people. Check out the Thursday Ramble or the open Mic night at Queen Bean on Sundays and Monday nights at Firkin andFox. But whatever you do, get involved in Modesto and see things things you can do to make it better and more interesting.
