Biz Buzz:
Student support for parade benefit

       The Coronado High School Homecoming Parade will benefit from sales at the Westside's Papa Murphy's Take 'n' Bake Pizza store Wednesday, April 7.
       Owner Cary Vogrin has pledged to donate $2 for every pizza sold. The business, which is open for lunch and dinner, is in the Red Rock shopping Center, 3105B W. Colorado Ave.
       Coronado spirit is expected to be on display after school that day, featuring cheerleaders and Student Council members. “They'll be by the road, probably with signs to help cars roll into Papa Murphy's,” said Dave Howard, Coronado athletic director.
       Because of changes in city regulations and the loss of a previous contributor who couldn't afford to donate business services anymore, the expected costs for the annual fall parade will be higher than in the past, at about $3,000. Donations have been coming in, but the school is still $1,800 short, according to Howard.
       Vogrin said she wanted to help out because “it's been obvious from listening to some of my employees that the parade is a really big deal to the school and the Westside, and I was im-pressed to learn it's one of the biggest homecoming parades in all of Colorado!”
       The Old Colorado City Creamery, 2602 W. Colorado Ave., will host a free Job Fair Saturday, April 10 from 1 to 3 p.m.
       “We would like to invite any company that is currently hiring or will be hiring seasonal summer employees like we do here at the Creamery to participate,” said Carrie Burris, co-owner of the Creamery.
       To reserve space, call Burris at 634-1411.
       The Historic District Merchants' “Easter Stroll” event was postponed by weather from March 27 to Saturday, April 3. People are encouraged to wear their “best Easter bonnet or hat” when visiting participating merchants. The time is 11:07 a.m. to 4:37 p.m.
