Th e Disney-themed breakfast will feature costumed characters, a Disney movie to enjoy while you eat, a coloring contest and face painting. “Disney is very particular with its copyright, but I can tell you there will be a boy and girl mouse there and some princesses,” said Dawn Anglin, choir director at RVHS. “Some of our kids dress up in costumes and it creates a fun atmosphere.” Th e pancake breakfast is from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 2 in the RVHS cafeteria. Cost is $5 or by donation for those under 5 years of age. Th e meal in- cludes all you can eat pancakes, sausage links (small donation for extra sausage), milk and juice. Hannah Marie’s is also donating coff ee. She explained that the music department likes to give band and choir students the opportunity to travel to Disney every four years and this fundraiser helps off set transportation costs for the trip. “It’s $10,000 a bus and just for our two buses that’s $20,000 in transportation,” Anglin said. While at Disney, the band students have the opportunity to perform in a parade and the choir members sing on an outdoor stage. “Th is year we are adding an additional component that we haven’t done the last two years where the students will be able to actually work with Disney musicians,” Anglin said. Th e band will create a Disney soundtrack and the choir will record an excerpt from a Disney animated movie. “We like to do this so the kids have a chance to travel and experience a diff er- ent part of the country,” Anglin said. “A lot of these kids have never been to the beach so we make sure we take time for that too. It’s a great experience for them to be out on the road and in a bigger city atmosphere. Th ey also get the opportu- nity to see our craft in conjunction with occupations. Kids often think the only thing you can do with a music degree is become a music teacher, but this shows them there are many diff erent career paths.” 40 th Wedding Anniversary Lloyd Tenney and Kathy (Tonkery) Tenney were married at the Whitehall Church of Christ in Fairmont, WV on September 3, 1977.
