September is finally upon us! I’m so thankful that the summer is over and cooler weather is upon us… let’s just hope there will be more days that are in the 90s, or lower throughout the remainder of summer.
As many of you know, we’ve been trying to plan several events throughout this year for you. The first is our bowling event (see page 21 for the flyer). Bring up to three family members and the lane and shoe rental is being provided by KCPA. We’d like for you to meet your Board as well as the KCPA Heart Walk team. We also have the Heart Walk team up and going and there is still time to sign up to participate for the October 17 walk/run. KCPA has raised $90 out of our $500 goal. If you would like to contribute toward KCPA’s team, but cannot run or walk on October 17, we are welcoming donations toward the team for the American Heart Association too. You can make donations and sign up here: http://bakersfieldheartwalk.kintera.org/faf/search/searchTeamPart.asp?ievent=1126433&lis=1&kntae1126433=8793D17546A9439D9483D6DCB07BF9AD&team=6428863&tlteam=6299572.
We’ve also created shirts for KCPA – you can either get it at no charge by joining KCPA’s Heart Walk team and raise $30, or you can purchase them for $15 and the profits are put toward KCPA’s Heart Walk team. If you’d like to purchase one, please select your size and make a check payable to “KCPA.” (The link to select your shirt size is: https://www.customink.com/g/csa0-00a7-kkvc).
We hope you’ve enjoyed the move to the Bakersfield Petroleum Club! Our next luncheon is September 10, 2015. Larry Peake, Esq., will be giving an ethics MCLE presentation. We’ll be collecting new and gently used clothing for the Stella Hills Elementary School, as well as accepting cash and check donations to go toward the purchase of clothing as our September Community Affairs Event.
The CAPA Leadership Conference will be hosted at the Riverside County Bar Association on November 7, 2015. Once we have the brochure with the details we will forward that information to you. If you are interested in learning new or additional leadership skills, I would highly recommend attending! I would highly recommend attending if you have an interest in joining KCPA as a Board member as well. I know they have some great presentations lined up and are currently putting all the information together.
We hope to see you at the September 10 luncheon and at our bowling event!
