Horoscope Weekly May 23 – 30

By Samantha Perkins

Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – Don’t be incredibly competitive at the beginning of this week. It’s better to put the “other guy” first if you want to keep everybody happy. Throughout the rest of the week, expect to become lost in your own thoughts. There’s a lot on your mind right now, and a little time spent reflecting on various issues may be just what you need. Over the weekend, you’ll be at your adventurous and assertive best, just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. Now’s the time to plan group outings to places you’ve never been before.

Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – Your Monday may start off dull, but friends and coworkers may find a way to make the day more exciting for you. Your moodiness may get the better of you this week if you’re not careful. Be sure to keep a lid on any overly intense emotions, especially ones like jealousy and possessiveness. Over the weekend, work on getting your ideas across to others successfully, but also be sure to try and see things from another person’s perspective.

Basket Bingo Providing Fundraising for Band to Attend the Outback Bowl

By Alex Diamond

The Salisbury Music Association is holding a Designer Purse and Basket Bingo at Salisbury Middle School on May 22nd; starting at 1:00 P.M. This event is being held to raise money for the marching band to attend the Outback Bowl. The SMA had the idea of holding the fundraiser after consulting with parents of students in the twirling program, which has held similar fundraisers in the past.

The basket bingo costs $20, which will get you twenty games. An additional four games can be bought individually for an additional charge. Many prizes will be offered at the basket bingo, including Coach, Vera Bradley, and Tiffany designer purses.  There will also be a Chinese auction with themed basket prizes, including lottery tickets, candy making, gardening, coloring book, picnic, bath and body, ice cream sundae, and more. Homemade food will also be for sale at the basket bingo, including Hamburger BBQ, pierogie casserole, mac & cheese, and baked goods.   
Mrs. Mosely, who instructs the marching band, thinks that the fundraiser will help with getting the marching band to the Outback Bowl at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. “The proceeds from the bingo fundraiser will be used towards ground transportation in Florida and defraying meal costs for students.” The marching band will participate in a mass halftime performance at the Outback Bowl with twenty-eight other marching bands, march in the Outback Bowl Parade in the Ybor City neighborhood in Tampa, and enjoy a New Year’s Eve party at Busch Gardens.
