The Arabian desert in Smithfield


Jordan Larsen was dressed in rags, stumbling through the dunes of an Arabian desert to find clay to sell at the market. Suddenly he heard the sound of dozens of horses and leapt behind a small rock to hide. To his amazement, forty thieves dressed in black stopped before a large boulder nearby, and with the magic words “Open sesame!” the story of Ali Baba, presented by the Smithfield Youth Theater, unfolded on Sky View’s stage for all to see.

Health Days 2010 was a huge success. The Health Days Fun Run, for example, had 672 runners this year. That’s up from 504 last year. A far cry from the 34 that signed up the first year in 1997. The golf tournament raised over $4000 for Sunrise Elementary and over $1000 for the Library. Brooke Snow and her students took hundreds, even thousands of photographs and posted them online. The results of the Fun Run are also online. We’ve posted links to these websites. If you have other links, photos or other information you’d like to add, please submit them to
