The show is a child-friendly version of the classic ballet that includes tap-dancing mice and other surprises. Workshop classes will be held at Legion Hall on Wednesday mornings and after school hours. The cost is $100 per child. This includes six weekly classes and the child's costume to keep. Tickets for the production will be $5 and will be sold at class and at the box office. To register, call (949) 715-0449.

Students work with Meals on Wheels

First- through fifth-graders at Top of the World Elementary School participated in a PTA Community Services Program-sponsored project benefiting their local Meals on Wheels Program on Oct. 6. During the lunch period, the students decorated more than 100 boxes, placing messages of kindness and encouragement inside. The boxes will be delivered to Richard Arguile from the Laguna Beach Meals on Wheels Program at Mission Hospital and to Larry Arms from the Suzi Q Senior and Community Center today.

Meals-on-Wheels home-delivers two meals a day, for seven days a week (including holidays), and provides modified diets, to seniors ages 60 and older. Meals-on-Wheels are delivered to seniors' homes by volunteers. Frequently the volunteer may be the only person the senior sees all day, providing human contact and a safety net, particularly for those seniors living alone.

Working to make the event a success were Carol Mindte and Missy Palino, co-chairwomen for the PTA Community Services Program, Maryann Thomas and Jennifer Chaney.

PTA officials said the activity focuses on the importance of charity and giving and encourages the students to use their creativity and talents to help make the world a better place.
