CAVE at the Christmas Faire
The Silver Dollar Fairgrounds’ 23rd Annual Christmas Faire will take place Friday, Dec. 5, through Sunday, Dec. 7. The faire features two buildings with 150 professional artisans displaying and selling their fine hand-crafted items plus two stages of continuous live musical entertainment. Santa will be on hand with free balloons and candy canes for the kids. Numerous food booths will be located throughout the show. The Christmas Faire is a major fundraising event for Community Action Volunteers in Education (CAVE) with a percentage of the proceeds to benefit the twenty volunteer programs. CAVE is an Associated Students- and United Way-funded program and celebrates thirty-one years as a community service organization. This is a great opportunity to do your Christmas shopping and help CAVE, too. Be sure to drop by the CAVE booth and purchase a chance to win an adult Dyno-Glide Cruiser and a child’s BMX bike from Campus Bikes.

Chico Symphony, University Chorus Present Holiday Concert

The Chico Symphony Orchestra, joined by Chico State's 150-voice University Chorus, will present a special holiday season program, Baroque Holiday, Dec. 12-13 at 7:30 p.m. in Harlen Adams Theatre.

Works being performed during the concert will include Corelli's Concerto grosso No. 8 Telemann's Concerto for Flute, Vaughn Williams' Fantasia on Greensleeves, Vivaldi's "Winter" from The Seasons, and J.S. Bach's Magnificat BWV 243. Among the instrumental soloists featured during the concert will be Bill Barbini, violin, and Jan Roberts, flute.

"In past years we have always done a Messiah performance during December," noted CSO maestro David Colson. "This year we decided to change things a bit. We are collaborating with the University Chorus in a holiday season favorite, the Bach Magnificat."

Chico Symphony Orchestra concerts are jointly presented by CSU, Chico's Department of Music, College of Humanities and Fine Arts, and School of the Arts.

Advance tickets for Baroque Holiday: $15 general, $12 senior citizens, high school and Butte College students, and $8 children and Chico State students, are currently available at University Box Office (898-5791).

Executive Officer Review

The Executive Officer Selection and Review Committee is currently conducting a review of Provost Scott McNall. A questionnaire will be sent to a sample of staff, faculty and others. Selected individuals will also be interviewed. Others who wish to be interviewed should contact Gary Francis, Chair, Zip 430, x5244.

Outstanding Academic Advisor Recognition

The Outstanding Academic Adviser Recognition Program is conducted each year by the Faculty Recognition and Support Committee of the Academic Senate (FRAS). This is an opportunity for students and others to nominate faculty who have made a difference in students' academic and personal lives through their advising. Advising can be one of the most significant factors in student success.

At least ten outstanding academic advisers at our Chico campus including Mack Reynolds, Chico's nominee last year, who was honored posthumously, have also gained national recognition by the National Academic Advising Association, a noteworthy distinction.

The deadline for nominations to FRAS is Friday, February 6, 1998. Call Caroline Aldrich, Academic Advising Services, for more information x4878.


Yvonne Lydon, Financial Aid, was mis-identified in the "1997 University Needy Children's Program" story, page 2, in the November 13 issue of Inside Chico State. The caption for the picture should have read Yvonne Lydon rather than Gerda Lydon. Yvonne Lydon also co-authored the article.

Abe Baily, who spearheaded the Enhancement of Multicultural Understanding Award endowment drive and was in the picture of the EMU endowment celebration on page 3 of the November 13 issue of Inside Chico State, was left out of the caption.
