Two Amador Valley High groups are looking for the community's support for academic and athletic projects.
Karen Lord-Eyewe, an Amador Valley Spanish teacher, is signing up students and adults for a trip to Cuba next summer, and the Amador Valley High cheer team is looking for donations to support this year's squad.
Lord-Eyewe will take a group to Cuba in June of 2016 through EF Tours, an internationally known educational tour company, now that the border has been opened to American tourists. The nine-day, $3,720 tour will start in Miami, Fla., in Little Havana, and participants will fly to Havana, Cuba, to visit a community daycare center, meet local artists and hike trails.
The Amador Valley cheer team is looking to raise $10,000 to buy safety equipment, team gear, uniforms and to pay for travel expenses and competition fees. As of Monday, the squad had raised more than $5,609, and it will run until Oct. 11.
