By Justine Frederiksen, Ukiah Daily Journal 11/14/2015

The City of 10,000 Buddhas in Talmage held its annual Honoring Elders celebration Saturday, and in the spirit of the day, the event began with ushers escorting their elders into the large hall on campus.

As vans from Brookside Retirement Community and Mountainview Assisted Living pulled up, ushers ran out to greet them and help them out of their cars and up the stairs to where the music, dancing and food awaited.

On the day of the Coastal Clean­Up, the student volunteers of DVGS piled out of white minivans, sporting summer camp T­shirts, Dragons sweatpants and work gloves. Joining us were the Ukiah High Spanish Club, local chaperones, and our beloved principal, Jin Jr Shr. Knowing that the summer weather could only last so long, we were determined to spend the day collaborating with our friends to clean up the environment. As school life often leaves students with little free time for relaxed socialization, many of us seized this opportunity to enhance our bonds with each other.

The Senior High said on Saturday they had picked up a significantly larger amount of garbage from the riverbed than they had last year, setting a new standard for the years to come.

Although volunteers surpassed DVAC's expectations of five to ten willing helpers, some key
