The Murietans who are in Uplifted: percussionist Asher Bloom, 15, and photographer/sound person Donovan Guertin, 14. The video is by Murietan Josh Kelly.

May pole

After participants circled the may pole with ribbons, organizer Pamela Haines worked to wriggle the braided garland from the pole for the participant who won the garland in a drawing. That would be the girl watching intently, Lola Cadwallader, 9, who was visiting from San Pedro and came by with her grandmother, Joanna Walker. The 24-year May Day event, which took place near the North Gate, had trouble getting a young quorum together – first three kids, then four and finally five took part.

Doggie blankets

Back row from left are Sheryl Bray, Kathy Burke, Diane Graf, Marion Connelly, Jane Barnes and Tammy Burkart. Seated from left are Lana Mason and Sue Murphy.
