CLOVERDALE -- "Just Dessert," a community variety show staged for Saturday, Dec. 3 in the cafetorium at Cloverdale High School, is not only designed for holiday fun but to help less-fortunate families in the Cloverdale School Corporation as well.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Saturday at CHS with the curtain going up on the variety show at 7.
Admission is by donation basis. In addition to the entertainment, the evening will include one dessert and unlimited beverages served at your table.
Funds donated to the tip jars placed at each table will go to the Clothe-a-Child Fund. A silent auction and more will also help raise funds.
