We are looking for donations for this year's LHG AUCTION. The auction will be upon us soon. Donations of goods and services are greatly appreciated. All usable items will be accepted except books, clothing and furniture (unless considered antique). Unfortunately, computer equipment not working or more than 4 years old also cannot be accepted. Time to clean out those garages and let us help you dispose of those items that need a new home. Phone 449-9927 for pickup. This has been a fun event for everyone and we look forward to seeing you at the auction!

The Livermore Heritage Guild now has a new official Preservation/Conservation Committee. At the February 14, 2002 Board, it was voted to accept a proposal for such from Pat and Clarence Hoenig. They have volunteered to be co-chairs for this year. Joe Bishop, Vanna Born, Bill Junk, Anna Siig and Jim Winnick also volunteered to serve on this committee.

Makes Appeal for Easter at Arroyo Sanatorium

Easter at Arroyo Sanatorium, where 150 patients, 35 of whom are mere children, are making their brave way back to health, will mean only what the people of Alameda county wish it to be to them. Out at the County infirmary, near San Leandro, 750 men and women are waiting the religious ceremonial day with a bit of misgiving. The Alameda County Hospital Association is once more sponsoring the happiness of this band of citizens whose health and poverty have separated them from their fellows. An Easter token -- a basket of candy eggs, a booklet, a card -- are little things that bring a heap of joy. A humble task, perhaps, but the hospital association is asking the public to join them in it.

Besides the little gifts, there will be appropriate Easter programs at the institutions. Automobiles will be needed to carry the participants,
