‘Benny’ loves babies Clear Lake funder
set for Saturday
Jan Schueller was Benny-
ed at the Keizer Safeway last
week when she bought some
baby food for her day care.
When she opened the pack-
age of Gerber Graduates the
following day she found a
$100 bill signed “Benny.” But
the rain of hundred dollar bills
didn’t end there.
She called to tell her
daughter, Heather Adair, who
had bought the same prod-
uct, of her good fortune.
Adair opened her package
and found her own $100 bill.
Jan found a second $100 in
another package of the baby
food. Jan and Adair found a
total of $300.
“Benny was very nice to us
that day,” said Jan.

For the past several years, the
Clear Lake Parent-Teacher As-
sociation has been raising funds
for the installation of an asphalt
track at the school. They are
planning to have it completed
“This is a community thing
because the whole neighbor-
hood uses our space at the
school, and we’d like to have
them contribute,” McVay said.
“We still need some volunteers
for in-kind donations and fi -
nancial contributions can be
given at the school offi ce.”
Baldridge said she’s seen
more community use of Clear
Lake facilities than any other
school she’s worked at.
“Even though the PTA con-
tributions to Clear Lake class-
rooms don’t directly benefi t the
greater community, the addi-
tion of a paved track will be a
great benefi t to the entire com-
munity, all year long,” Baldridge

ner and auction, contact McVay
