In Ocoee:
Health center

to expand
By Mary Anne Swickerath
The city of Ocoee has de-
cided to expand its Employee
Health Center to include a
large room for physical ther-
apy, a plan approved by the
City Commission last week.
The project, which will cost
$15,000 in materials and con-
struction, will further expand
the health care services offered
to city employees and their
families at the center.
The city opened this cen-
ter last April in a renovated
residence at 17 Oakland Ave.
in order to lower health costs
and to give employees access
to health care near their jobs,
thereby reducing the time they
are not working.
In December, Human Re-
sources Director Jim Camrnicel-
la told the elected officials that
the new center had been very
successful in reducing employ-
ee health care costs.
This expansion project will
consist of closing in the pres-
ent carport at the center and
turning the new room into a
physical therapy facility to
benefit employees and further
lower costs.
For an additional improve-
ment to the center, the City

Going on a treasure

hunt in W.O. County


By Amy Quesinberry
If you know where there are
oranges in the sky in Winter
Garden, you are on the right
track for locating a treasure
box. An X will not mark the
exact spot like it does on a pi-
rate's map, and you shouldn't
expect a wooden chest spill-
ing over with emeralds and'
gold coins once you find the
treasure. But searching for let-
terboxes could be a fun way to

tour the community and spend
an afternoon with the family.
A visit to the Orange County
Web site www.ocfl.net/publi-
cartcaches will give treasure
hunters a complete description
of clues leading to the Win-
ter Garden box* "beneath the
oranges" and to other caches
hidden near various pieces of
public art around the county.
They were all placed by Or-
ange County Arts & Cultural
Affairs.
One of the boxes can be
found in the heart of Orlando
near "a giantasparagus," also.
know as the Tower of Light.
Terry Olson, who is with the
county's Arts & Cultural Af-
fairs and is the man in charge
of the public art treasure cach-
es, said this is a fun way to get


people motivated to see the
various pieces of art all over
Orange County.
Not all the letterboxes have
to do with art, though.
At www.letterboxing.org,
searchers can find location op-
tions all over the United States
- and including sites in West
Orange County. Central Flori-
da alone has 306 listings.
Current boxes in Winter
Garden and Oakland have
names like Woodland Crea-
tures, In Bloom and Cycling
is Fun.
Searchers must look for
markers, both natural and man-
made, when seeking letterbox-
es. They could be "a cluster of
rocks beneath a three-trunked
tree" or "an L-shaped build-
ing." Clues might take you "20
steps past the prickly pear" or
"up the stairs of the nearest
public building."
If the letterbox is hidden
outdoors, the final location
could be among bushes, at
the base of a tree or rock, un-
der moss or leaves or off the
beaten path.
A compass is sometimes
handy.
And though they're called
letterboxes, they actually
might be plastic food contain-
ers or film canisters as long
as they are watertight or
they could be disguised as a
rock or other natural feature.
This idea of letterboxing
started in England when boxes
were hidden with postcards
inside, and the finder was en-
couraged to mail one back to
the box's owner or the last per-
son who had discovered the
box. Today, seekers might find
a small journal in which to
leave their names and a small
rubber stamp to document the
find in their own journal. Some
hunters even carry around their
own personal stamp to add to
the letterbox journal or leave a
note for the next person who
locates the box.


'Greek Show' races into Garden Theatre
The Garden Theatre in downtown Winter Garden will pres-
ent the Jester Theater Company's production of The Iliad, the
Odyssey and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less Feb.
13-March 1. Five actors will portray all of the characters as they
breeze through all of the Greek myths while a clock counts down
onstage.
The Greek Show (as it is referred to) is an original comedy
written by Jester Theater's own Jay Hopkins and John Hunter
and has recently been published by Samuel French Play Pub-
lishers. The original cast is performing the work, directed by

While District 2 incumbent
Bob Buchanan and challenger
Thomas Gregory are sweat-
ing out the results of Winter
Garden's March 10 municipal
election, commissioners Har-
old Bouler and Colin Shar-
man will be celebrating easy
victories.
Bouler (District 3) and Shar-
man (District 4) are both run-
ning unopposed and have be-
gun looking ahead at how they
wish to serve the city during
their new, three-year terms.
"I think Winter Garden is
headed in the right direction
and the people in District 4 are
being well-represented, and
that's why I'm unopposed,"
Sharman said. "We're moving
the city well into the 21st cen-
tury and helping make south
side residents feel more a part
of Winter Garden."
Bouler told The West Or-
ange Times: "I feel blessed to
have a second opportunity to
serve and work to improve the
quality of life in our African-
American community while
also branching out and show-
ing that I'm a commissioner
of all the people."
Both commissioners point-
ed to accomplishments in re-
cent years that they are proud
of and discussed their goals as
elected officials for the com-
ing years.
Helping correct drain-
age problems and renovate
Zanders Park were among
Bouler's list of accomplish-
ments, while Sharman boasted
the additions of two new parks
and a fire station in District 4.
Bouler, who refuses to label
his district as "East Winter
Garden," said he intends on
working to encourage his con-
stituents' involvement in city
activities and programs.
"I want to change the mind-
set of African-Americans in


District 3 who historically
mistrust the city govern-
ment," he said. "I think the
city has gone out of its way
to be all inclusive, especially
under the leadership of City
Manager Michael Bollhoe-
fer and Police Chief George
Brennan."
As a result of changes made
late last year to the city's dis-
trict boundaries, Bouler's dis-
trict stretches south of West
Colonial Drive, and he ex-
pressed interest in reaching
out to residents there.
"I want to get away from
this south-of-Highway-50
mentality," he said. "We're all
one Winter Garden; what af-
fects one side affects us all."
In regard to the possible
closure of Maxey Elementary
School, Bouler vowed to do
everything in his power to
help keep it open.
"Closing Maxey is a ter-
rible thing due to its historical
value to the community and
because many of those stu-
dents don't have transporta-
tion," he said.
Keeping citizens safe was a
priority for Bouler and Shar-
man.
"No one should be afraid to
travel through the east side of
Winter Garden," Bouler said.
Both commissioners praised
Bollhoefer's staff for help-
ing keep the city above water
during the national economic
crisis and pledged to continue
providing the same level of
service during their next three
years in office. Supporting the
city's police and fire depart-
ments, they agreed, would be
a top priority.
Water management, Shar-
man added, would be an im-
portant regional issue in the
coming years, but Winter
Garden, he said, should have
adequate resources thanks to
advanced planning by city
leaders.

followed the suspect as he
fled toward Interstate 4 in an
aqua blue pickup truck with a
silver top. The report said the
witness observed the suspect
removing the wig and mus-
tache; the suspect was bald

Because of the suspect's
description and method of
operation, Orange County
detectives believe the sus-
pect is probably involved in
other robberies in the area of
Oakridge Drive.
Individuals with any in-

asked to call Crimeline at

W.G. dedicates new fire station to former mayor


By Amy Quesinberry
Winter Garden's newest fire
station, No. 22, was officially
dedicated Saturday morning,
and guests could tour the facili-
ties during the open house that
followed.
This is the city's first fire
station built south of West Co-
lonial Drive, where there has
been tremendous growth in the
last five years. Neighborhoods,
restaurants and an outdoor mall
now occupy what was formerly
citrus gro es.
In speaking to the public dur-
ing Saturday's ceremony, Fire
Chief John Williamson said,
"Having a fire station now at
this location will significantly
reduce our response times to
emergencies, allowing us to
better serve the citizens in south
Winter Garden."
John Rees, Winter Garden
mayor, also spoke to those in
attendance and then dedicated
the station to the late Ralph
Fulford, who was a city com-
missioner from 1974-78 and
mayor from 1979-85. A plaque
will be placed on the exterior
near the fire station's front door.
Fulford's widow, Anna Fulford,
was present at the ceremony.

Seniors First
needs volunteers
The Seniors First Meals on
Wheels is in need of volunteer
drivers. Meal routes are locat-
ed throughout Orange County,
with various pick-up locations.
The routes are open Monday-
Friday with each route taking
about an hour.
Seniors First is a non-profit
social service agency serving
seniors in Orange County with
Meals on Wheels, neighbor-
hood lunch programs, home
repairs and guardianship ser-
vices.
Anyone who can give an hour
once a week should call Loraine
Shumaker at Seniors First at
407-292-0177, Ext. 260.


Anna Fulford (2nd from left) attended the grand-opening
celebration of the Winter Garden Fire Department's Sta-
tion 22 on Saturday. The new station was dedicated to her
husband, the. late Ralph Fulford, who served as a Winter
Garden city commissioner from 1974-78 and as mayor
from 1979-85. With her are, l-r, City Manager Mike Boll-
hoefer, Mayor John Rees and Fire Chief John Williamson.


Commissioner Colin Shar-
man, who represents District 4,
where the station was built, ad-
dressed the crowd as well.
Josh Sauers, the fire depart-
ment's chaplain, blessed the fire
station and the men and women
of the Winter Garden Fire De-
partment who serve in it.
Chief Williamson then an-
nounced the ribbon-cutting,
which, was done a little differ-
ently than usual. The ribbon had


been stuffed inside two sections
of two-and-a-half-inch fire hose,
and Rees made the cut after Wil-
liamson and Sharman pulled the
two ends of the hose apart.
The chief thanked many
people, including city staff, the
architect and builder and the
firefighters and personnel who
"put up with some very tight and
crowded conditions at Station
24 until we could move into this
station."

In our opinion

Editorials


Sixty-year-old advice still stands today


From the West Orange News, March
30, 1945:
"It is a pleasure to note that some of
our citizens are taking more pride in
their home town. They have become
conscious of the fact that spending their
money in other towns [doesn't] help to
lower their taxes one cent or provide bet-
ter school facilities for their children. We
wish all of our citizens could become
conscious minded and spend their mon-
ey at home.... Every dollar you spend
in [West Orange] circulates and leaves
a profit in every hand that handles it.
When you send it away, you are delib-


erately sapping the life and strength of
your own community. To patronize home
industries is a duty every citizen owes
to himself and town in which he lives."
You don't have to watch cable news
to hear horror stories about the poor
economy and the businesses that are
struggling. Just talk to your neighbor.
Chances are they own or work for a
business that's affected by the recession.
Economic stimulus begins right here in
West Orange County. If you are going
to spend $50, try to spend it with your
neighbor. After all, he may be employing
your other neighbor.

Letters to the editor


Family thanks local business


Editor,
A tragic moment happened in our life a
beloved son, father and friend was taken too
soon to be with Jesus, Rod Andrew Waukechon
Rodarte. When unforeseen things happen, you
are not prepared for funeral services for your
loved ones. Great praise is given to the Ocoee
Family Funeral Home for being so gracious
and understanding in that time of need.
Anthony and Adys worked with the family
and went above and beyond and did more than


any of us could have ever imagined so that
Rod could be put to rest. From all of Rod's
family and close friends, we thank Anthony
and Adys for being so compassionate, helpful
and patient with, all the decisions that had
to be made. No other words can express the
gratitude we all have, and we can never thank
you enough.
Michelle Applegate, Ocoee
On behalf of Big Rod Rodarte,
Lisa Rodarte and Norisa Rodarte

From Editor's Notebook: Driving to Venice
to fetch some new coin racks, it was scary to
find nearly all the gas stations on Florida's west
coast shut down with signs reading such things
as "Sorry closed," Out of gas," and "Regular
customers only." We felt very fortunate to find
someone willing to sell us enough gas to get
back home, and now we're convinced the gas
crunch is for real.

After a year of construction, Winter Garden
city employees have finally occupied the new
City Hall and police station on Plant Street. The
complex, which will include a new commission
chambers, is estimated to cost about $685,000
when completed.
Ocoee's beautiful new elementary school was
on display at an, open house with students acting
as hosts and guides. It was a novelty for those
who had never seen an "open-space" school be-
fore. Conspicuously absent were the traditional
hallways with walls and doors closing the class-
rooms off into little worlds of their own. Prin-
cipal Maxie Cinnamon is enthusiastic about the
new design. Each teacher has her own students
and her own bailiwick called a "pod" instead of
a "room," which allows her to teach separately
or join the "team-teaching" technique.

Many families are without health insurance and can't afford to
visit their doctor regularly or get the health care they need. If you
live in Orange County, we can help.

The Orange Primary Access Coordination Team (O-PACT) is part of
a free community program to link people without health insurance
to the health care they need.

An O-PACT Team, consisting of a Registered Nurse and an Eligibility
Specialist, can assist you by:
Helping with paperwork and conducting an eligibility
screening for insurance programs such as Medicaid
and KidCare.
Conducting health screenings and risk assessments
for chronic diseases.
Providing case management and health education.
Linking you to a health care provider (medical home).

All this can be done in the comfort of your own home.

Are you without health insurance and have a chronic
disease?

The program also provides chronic disease management for
diabetes, heart disease, HIV, and others. The chronic disease
component is managed by a Registered Nurse who works
closely with a physician in one of the medical homes, a Licensed
Dietician, and a Health Educator. Orn ge. *.,

An award for excellence
Just before the end of 2008, Beverly Thornton was award-
ed the Administrative Excellence Medal by Orange County
Sheriff Kevin Beary. Beverly, the daughter of Jesse and
Chloe Thornton of Ocoee, has been employed with the
Orange County Sheriff's Office since July 2, 1979, and is
currently assigned as an executive assistant in the Office

Clients work out with the kettlebells at Zero Gravity Fitriess
in Ocoee.

Celebrity-style workout

hits Central Florida


By Lani Llanes
Chiseled bodies are a must in
Hollywood, and it's no differ-
ent here in the Sunshine State.
In order to maintain a bathing-
suit-ready body all year long,
celebrities like Jennifer Lopez
and Matthew McConaughey
are getting back to the basics
and adding age-old techniques
like kettlebell to their workout
regimen.
This style of training origi-
nated in Russia in the early 20th
century as a way strongmen or
"Bogatir," as they were called,
maintained their physique.
Kettlebells are bowling-ball
shaped, cast-iron weights with
a ti-shaped handle.
Unlike bodybuilding-style
workouts which focus all the
stress on a single muscle group
through isolation, kettlebell-
style training recruits as many
different muscle groups as
possible at the same time. This
trains the student to utilize his
or her body synergistically,
moving as a coordinated whole.
Thus, a kettlebell, when used
properly, develops strength,
flexibility and cardio all at the
same time.
Unique exercise moves are
done in a swinging motion and
in just under an hour, with the
help of gravity and momentum,
one can achieve the benefits of
a full body workout.

lie Nickson has been training
using the kettlebell technique
and says she is seeing the trans-
formations.
"People seem to really be en-
joying it when they're doing it.
They feel really strong and it's
fun; it's not just the same rou-
tine," she told The West Orange
Times.
Kettlebells made their grand
debut in Ocoee at Zero Grav-
ity Fitness, located at 2910 S.
Maguire Road earlier this year,
and, acceding to Nickson, it is
the only studio in Central Flor-
ida who offers it.

It was just another day of leader-
ship filled with meetings, appoint-
ments, planning, & study...
During one of our last hurricane
scares, an elderly woman from
our neighborhood stopped by my
office and anxiously asked for our
assistance. Her eyesight being poor,
she did not feel confident driving
through the storm for her daugh-
ter's doctor appointment. And
recently having had both of her legs
amputated and experiencing some
complications, her daughter really
did need medical attention.
What could I do? I was up to my
eyeballs with all that church stuff.
I picked up the phone and dialed
a familiar number, "Rollin, this is
Pastor Jon, are you busy... ? And
per usual Rollin came and spent
his day serving and I went back to
leading.
Considerable time has passed since
that day and I have never seen that
mother and daughter again, but
I do get to pray for them often.
Rollin, who regularly runs errands
and transports them to their doctor
appointments keeps me up-to-date.
He's still serving and I'm...well
let's just say, I'm trying to dig out
from under that church stuff and
follow a Christian leader.

Dr. Phillips


LaFalce wins Cub Scout Pinewood Derby


Cub Scout Nicholas LaFalce of Turtle Creek
took top honors by placing first in the Webelos
II division of the recent Pinewood Derby at Dr.
P. Phillips Park.
LaFalce, a Windermere Prep fifth-grader, took
first place in all six trial heats before winning the
final race.
Before competing in the race, the Scouts had to
go through an in-depth inspection process to make
sure their cars met required guidelines for height,
weight, width and design. LaFalce is a member of
Cub Scout Pack 84, chartered by the Southwest Or-
lando Jewish Congregation. The Pack is made up
of boys from local schools, including Windermere
Prep and Sand Lake and Bay Meadows elementary
schools and Windy Ridge School.
LaFalce's win qualifies him to participate in the
District Pinewood Derby this month at Festival Bay
mall. Boy Scouts from Troop 84, led by Scout-
master Dorie Cohn, assisted the Cub Scouts with
scorekeeping, lining up the racers and their cars,
releasing the cars to race and helping the event run
smoothly all day.

New branch director named at JCC


After its early November
ground-breaking, the JCC of
Greater Orlando on the Jack &
Lee Rosen Southwest Orlando
Jewish Community Campus
continues to gear up to open
its doors in August by naming
Bonnie Rayman the facility's
branch director.
Rayman, who has nearly 20
years of experience in leading
and managing Jewish Commu-
nity Centers and working with
Jewish youth, most recently
served as chief operating of-
ficer (COO) of JCC of Greater
Palm Beaches, where she man-
aged the agency's budget of $12
million. In addition, she wrote
and secured grants, including
a $1 million grant for parly
childhood education teacher
salaries, and was responsible
for fundraising and sponsor-
ship solicitation, among other
duties.
Rayman relocated to Florida
in 1996 to serve as the Early
Childhood director for the Ka-
plan Jewish Community Center
of the Greater Palm Beaches, a
post she held until 1999 when
she was named branch direc-
tor of the Hochman Branch
in Boynton Beach. In 2003,
she was promoted to associate
executive director of the JCC
of Greater Palm Beaches and
was again promoted to COO


BONNIE RAYMAN


in 2007.
A 1984 graduate of Union
College in Schenectady, N.Y.,
Rayman also holds a master's
degree in education from Les-
ley College Graduate School in
Cambridge, Mass. Among her
professional accomplishments,
Rayman served as president
of the Association of Jewish
Center Professionals (AJCP),
Florida-Southeast Region and
was a member of the Board of
Directors for the AJCP national
office from 2005-2007.
"We could not have asked for
a branch director who is more
experienced or more dedicated


to Jewish youth and education
than Bonnie Rayman," said
Marvin Friedman, executive
director of the JCC. "Bonnie's
many years in JCC manage-
ment and executive leadership
make her the perfect person
to open our doors and lead us
forward."
The new 34,000-square-foot
JCC will house branch offices
of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Orlando and Jewish
Family Services, as well as
the Jewish Community Center
of Greater Orlando's second
facility, the first of which has
been a mainstay of Maitland
since 1973. Other programs
and services include an Early
Childhood Learning Center,
which currently exists on the
property, an after-school -pro-
gram, youth and adult sport
leagues to supplement the ex-
isting youth soccer league, and
a full-service fitness center.
* Along with other local do-
nors and the Dr. P. Phillips
Foundation, the new $3.5
million JCC was funded by a
donation from Orlando hote-
lier and philanthropist Harris
Rosen, president and COO of
Rosen Hotels and Resorts, and
is named in honor of his par-
ents, Jack and Lee Rosen. For

Olympia, DP, Ocoee are top seeds

at district basketball tournament


The area's top varsity boys
basketball teams are converg-
ing on Dr. Phillips High this
week as the Panthers host the
district championship tourna-
ment. Opening-round games
began Monday and the finals
are set for Saturday evening.
The rival Titans and Pan-
thers, ranked No. 2 and 3 re-
spectively in the state Class


6A rankings, headline the
tournament as its top two
seeds. Olympia finished the
regular season with a 22-3,
8-0 record, while DP went
23-2, 7-1. The Ocoee Knights
posted a 15-9 record to earn
the district tournament's No.
3 seed.
The Panthers were set to
play Tuesday night in a quar-


terfinal game against West
Orange, preceded by Olympia
taking on the winner of Mon-
day's game between Edgewa-
ter and Wekiva. Wednesday's
quarterfinal matchups includ-
ed Ocoee vs. Apopka.
Semifinal games will be
played this Friday at 6 and 8
p.m., and Saturday's champi-
onship final tips off at 7 p.m.


The Olympia High varsity
girls basketball team lost to
Edgewater in the finals of last
week's district tournament.
The runner-up finish, though,
qualified the Lady Titans for a
spot ih the regional playoffs.
Olympia plays this Thursday,
Feb. 12, at Palm Bay High at
7 p.m.


The Lady Titans defeated
Ocoee 66-59 in overtime
last Friday night in the dis-
trict semifinals. Stephanie
Cruz nailed a three-pointer
at the end of regulation to tie
the game, and Chris Cartaya
hit a clutch three-pointer in
overtime to seal the victory.
Joanie Gavin went three-for-


three from the free-throw line
in overtime. Monique Bunk
finished with a team-high 22
points, Cruz scored 14 and
Rayelle Garrick added 10-
points.
Olympia's district runner-
up finish is the best-ever by
the Lady Titan basketball
program.


Dr. Phillips High wrestlers and coaches celebrate after the Panthers won their 2nd straight

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do
not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your
hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John
14:27

It seems these days with all the threats of war, im-
morality, rising cost of gas, food, drugs, medical care,
etc. that we lose sight of the fact that God is always
in control. The Bible teaches that we already possess
God's peace.
Do you have doubts about your future? Just take a
look at your past. In Matt. 1:1-17 the Holy Spirit is
making a point. Matthew gives us a picture of Jesus'
lineage. It reads of a not-so-great grandparent list.
If this had been our lineage, most of us would prefer
it not be told! But the Holy Spirit wants us to see that
the common bond between the individuals on this list
was a promise...a promise from heaven that God
would use these people to send His Son.
Why does God give us a testament filled with blunders
and stumbles of His people? Because He knows we
will stumble, fret, and worry. Because He wants us


to know that when the world goes wild, He stays calm.
Want proof? Read the last name on the list! In spite
of all the slips and blunders, Jesus, the blessed Savior,
the last name on the list, was the first one promised.
The famine couldn't starve God's promise, four hun-
dred years of Egyptian slavery couldn't oppress God's
promise, wilderness wandering couldn't lose God's
promise, Babylonian captivity couldn't stop God's
promise. The promise of the Messiah threads its way
through forty-two generations of "stuff" to bring us
a King, just as promised!
God keeps His promise. Sometimes we just need to
look.for ourselves. In the manger, He was there, in
the tomb, He was gone! He is alive, His promises
still hold. The engineer has not abandoned the train.
Nuclear war is no threat to God. A yo-yo economy
does not intimidate the heavens and deranged men
have never derailed the plan. God did and does keep
His promises. Be of good cheer, fot-God is always
near.

Citrus Elementary recently held its spelling bee. Pictured is winner Nakima Rector, who
will go on to participate in the county spelling bee on Feb. 20 at the Educational Leader-
ship Center.

I lumphreys Junior High


Students in the 7th and 8th grades at Humphreys Junior High have been studying the
American Civil War. In order to learn about the impact that Eli Whitney's cotton gin had
on the economy of the South, students hand-picked seeds out of cotton. Students also
wrote research papers about important people from the Civil War, including politicians,
military leaders, abolitionists, writers and artists. Classes featured presentations on the
period's history and culture, which included listening to music and songs.


Kindergartners perform during Lake Whitney's annual Family Fun Night. The event was
attended by more than 600 people. Families enjoyed songs and entertainment from each
grade. Other activities included in the 'Hoe Down' theme were barbecue by Conway's,
cakewalk, hair painting and silent auction.


MetroWest


MetroWest Elementary held its Fun Family Night at Marble Slab Creamery on Kirkman
Road. Serving as guest ice cream scoopers were (1-r) Assistant Principal Bibiana Gavil-
lan-Mondragon, Principal Pat Smith, Assistant Principal Jim Weis and PTA President

Night on Jan. 27. More than
300 eighth-grade students and
their families from Ocoee, Rob-
inswood, Gotha and Lakeview
middle schools came out to
meet with faculty and view
displays from a wide variety
of elective classes, sports pro-


grams and clubs.
Some of the displays includ-
ed an interactive percussion
display from OHS's nationally
recognized engineering pro-
gram. Ceramics teacher Ms.
Cannon brought out her pot-
ter's wheel, the business pro-
gram developed an interactive
DVD display and the TV pro-
duction class had a presenta-
tion on Ocoee High's elective
and vocational classes from


students' point of views.
After meeting with teachers,
the parents and students went
to the performing arts center
for a presentation from the
guidance department on what
freshman parents and stu-
dents must know about making
a successful transition to OHS.
Athletic Director Bill Chambers
followed with a discussion on
athletics and eligibility.

papers. Pictured in front of 1 of the many display tables are (1-r): Victoria English, Tyler
Graham, Connor Graham, Sam Terechenok and Gabriel Hunt.
