Bob Mosby and Toni Martinez presented the American Cancer Societies “Relay for Life” event.

The “Relay for Life” event is a local community based event that raises funds for the American Cancer Society. It is designed to raise awareness by doing a team walk-a-thon for a 24 hour period. The event that Bob and Toni participate in is held in Southgate on July 21.

There are about 5200 such community based events held around the world that raise about $400 million annually. At Bob and Toni’s event, there will likely be about 400 participants, and they think they could raise about $51,000 for the cause.

They talked about the program that includes a luminario ceremony for survivors, and a “Candlelight Lap” that includes a bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace.”

Sounds like quite an event!

ImageBill Stanley introduced today’s speaker – Graham Smith, presenting for Med-Air International.

Graham has spent the last year helping his group in the Sudan, and presented a very moving video about their program.

The theme of Graham’s talk was “Where is Goodness?” Med-Air International focuses on providing resources to find the goodness – and to take “less” out of Hopeless. They work hard to provide food, medical help, shelter and water for people who have lost all hope. The people helped range from the South Sudan to the people who have been displaced by the civil war in Syria.

Med-Air is currently working in 8 countries, and is happy to work at the behest of other relief agencies.

They are asking for our help to support their effort to provide hope for people who have none.


Thanks to Graham for his caring and service!

NEW Member Induction




Chair of New Member Initiations Geoff Hopper swore in two new members:

Stephanie Phillips: Geoff tried really hard to find some dirt on Stephanie, but could only relate that she is a native Californian, has 4 kids, and is VERY overqualified to be a member of our group. Geoff did say that he and Stephanie spent time in jail together!







Catherine Obregon: Again, Geoff stumbled in his effort to dig up dirt on Catherine. She does have 4 sons, all very accomplished. Also, she has 9 grandchildren! Again, Catherine is VERY overqualified for membership in our group.

As the lights dimmed, Geoff administered the official oath – and, SURPRISE – they both accepted membership, overqualified or not!

The lights came back up, and Stephanie and Catherine were congratulated by a long round of applause!

Wendy Mathes presented the Special Olympics, the largest humanitarian / athletic event in Southern California.

The World Games will be held in Los Angeles this year in July.

Wendy gave the group a bit of history of the games – founded by Eunice Kennedy, there will be about 7,000 athletes competing this time. The events will begin on July 25, and go through August 2, all held in the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Wendy showed the group a video of the games – looks like fun!


ImageLake Arrowhead is a host town – designated to host more than 100 participants and chaperones from Switzerland. They will be staying at the Boy Scout camp in Hook Creek. Lake Arrowhead will organize a welcome ceremony, and coordinate with locals to help provide accommodations, training areas, transport, meals and cultural activities. This program will be organized locally by our own Polly Sauer.

The committee is looking for some “Core Volunteers” that can be available for the entire time of the Olympics. If you can help, contact Polly as soon as possible. They also need other help for individual activities, so check with Polly o=if you would like to be on the list.


The group is raising funds to support the effort – their goal is to raise $25,000 – they have raised about $18,000 so far – and would appreciate our help!

ImageLocal Realtor and Developer Bill Johnson spoke today about the re-developing of the Santa’s Village project.

Bill described all of the factor’s leading to the decision to develop the property into a new destination resort “Skypark.”

Bill’s vision for Skypark is a grand one. The design is for it to become a year round attraction that will include activities for all ages. Some of the planned items will be a Mountain Biking area, a monorail, a lake with fishing, restaurants, a micro-brewery, zip-lines and many – many other activities and attractions.

Bill’s plans are BIG – and everyone is excited to see them happen!

Evidently, we have bought breakfast for Mike Clark for the last time!

In a somewhat classier-then-usual fashion, stand-in initiator Davis Hopper gave us a brief history on Mike. He’s from Grants Pass Oregon, and works as a Real Estate Appraiser. He was once a contestant on “Jeopardy” so we can look forward to Mike having answers to any unknown questions we may have in the future.

After Karyn turned the lights down, Mike took the sacred oath – and then Karyn muffed turning the lights back on!

Welcome, Mike!
