March 10, 1994|By SALLY BUCKLER

Hot, aromatic Italian food served in a fancy restaurant at a price you can afford. Doesn't that sound heavenly?

The Catholic Youth Ministry at St. Louis Church in Clarksville is turning the school gym into an Italian restaurant, complete with music and banners, from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. on March 20.

Chef Joe Firetti promises great spaghetti, meatballs and lasagna, served with beverages, garlic bread and homemade desserts. Dinners are only $6 per adult and $4 per child for spaghetti or $7.50 for lasagna. There is a discount for families of five and more. Adults may purchase wine with dinner.

The young people of St. Louis parish will serve, and proceeds will support the CYM programs.

Sixth-graders at Glenwood Middle School are beginning a cross-disciplinary study of Asia. This month and next, learning will shift from the traditional Western view to an Eastern one in social studies, the arts, literature and language. Even the science and math departments are getting in on this in-depth study, with a look at ideas that began in Occidental cultures.

Doesn't it make you want to go back to school?


Glenwood Middle School's Parent Student Teacher Association sponsored a Reflections Program this winter, and received 46 entries in the arts competition. Jodi Ellenwood won in visual arts and Patrick Hubert, Barrett Nixon, Kelly Renfro and Jessica Swadow won in literature.


Lisbon Elementary School's Parent Teacher Association is sponsoring an art auction you'll find refreshingly different.

Students worked with artist-in-residence, Kristin Helberg, on a project painting old furniture. Some pieces were donated by parents and art teacher Leonor Tisano found some at flea markets.

A few are true antiques and all are now works of art rendered by Lisbon students. Tuesday, Brian Warfield will conduct an auction, and you can become the proud owner of an original from the "Lisbon School."

The preview begins at 6:30 p.m., with the auction opening an hour later. Pieces range in size from baskets to a chest of drawers. In the lot of over 30 pieces you'll find a trunk, a chair, a coffee table, a bookshelf, a sled and some picture frames.

All proceeds will help the school purchase a computer for use in art, music and physical education classes.

Call PTA president Sheila Nixon for more information at 489-4097.
