For the second year in a row, the Lucerne Valley Elementary School Booster Club paid for a carnival to help students celebrate a successful school year.
While a DJ played the hits of the day, students enjoyed an assortment of carnival games, including a basketball toss and ping pong ball throw into a bowl of water. Students ate snow cones and cotton candy and had opportunities to earn goodies and toys if they met challenges at the attractions.

Lucerne Valley residents are helping contribute a flow of ideas as the region braces for an increase in water resource-related challenges.
Last Tuesday, attendees of the Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association meeting at the Senior Center participated in a Mojave Integrated Regional Water Management Plan workshop. The event, and similar future workshops, will help the Mojave Water Agency to build a dialogue for water resource solutions.
The Lucerne Valley Economic Development Associated last Tuesday voted to donate $250 to the Lucerne Valley Veterans Memorial Monument.
The donation was proposed by LVEDA president Chuck Bell.
The donation brings the committee’s fundraising to a current total of $3,004.75, according to committee member Patti Riddle.
