THE EAGLE FLYER IS ON-LINE! Yes, you, too, can now read all the news from Sunol Glen School right on your computer screen. Just go to www.sunol.net, click on Sunol Glen and then on Eagle Flyer and you're there. And of course for those of you who prefer your news on newsprint, this column will continue to keep you up to date on happenings at the center of the community, our wonderful little school.

That said, it takes longer to put the Eagle Flyer together for the on-line version, so submissions need to reach the school office no later than 2:50 p.m. on Monday to be included in Thursday's newsletter. It is a perfect way to reach all the Sunol Glen families with announcements of community events and expressions of gratitude for school volunteers.

BE A BROWNIE OR JUNIOR GIRLSCOUT! The first meeting of the new school year for Sunol's Brownie and Junior Girl Scout troops is Wednesday, September 24. Returning scouts should be contacted soon by their leaders with specific meeting time and place. Returning Brownies can contact Cathy Morris at 925-862-2350, while returning Junior Scouts can contact either Lori Nielsen (925-862-2970) or Victoria Barnes (925-862-0204). If you are interested in becoming a Girl Scout, please contact Lori. Girl Scouting is open to girls of all ages and if enough girls and volunteer leaders are interested, Sunol will form more troops.

NEWS FROM SUNOL 4-H: The first meeting of the fabulous Sunol 4-H Club is Thursday (9-11) at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. All interested youth and their parents are invited to join the fun. As always, there are many project areas being offered, including beef, carpentry, cooking, drama, horse, leadership, mini-4-H, rabbit, scrapbooking, sheep and swine groups. And if you have an interest you'd like to share, volunteering as a leader for a new project is a very rewarding experience. There are also camping and skating trips, parties, barbecues and much more in store for Sunol 4-H members. For information, please contact Teresa Donovan at 925-862-2118.

AYE, MATEY, IT'S WALKATHON TIME! Sunol Glen's annual Community Club walkathon is on the calendar for Saturday, September 27. The all-day super fundraiser has a fun-filled pirate theme this year, and it's called Walk-the-Plankathon. There are numerous ways you can be part of this special day - donate a prize for an exceptional walker (contact Carolyn Glass at 925-862-2325), and sign up in the school office to help at the event setting up, helping with registration, passing out lap treats, painting faces and more.

You can also be a sponsor and/or get your employer to be one. Donors of $500 or more will have their logo on the walkathon t-shirt, and donors of $150 to $500 will have their name or company name on the shirts. The deadline for receipt of your logo (a business card is fine) and confirmation of all sponsorships for t-shirt printing is Friday (9-12), so get your info and your check payable to Sunol Glen Community Club to the school office pronto! The office has formal request letters on Community Club letterhead to provide to your employer, and donations are tax deductible. For sponsor info, please contact Linda Krikorian at 925-426-1474.
