Did everyone enjoy having the extra day in February? I know it sucked having that extra day be a Monday, but at least the start of March is off to a better start.
Have you had a chance to see the wildflowers and poppies on the hills between Bakersfield and Tehachapi, or from the 58 to Arvin? In the years I’ve commuted from Tehachapi, I cannot remember ever seeing the hills so beautiful and orange. My husband took me through Arvin and those views are almost more impressive because the hills are a bright, deep orange. If you have some spare time, I would suggest taking a drive over the 58 to enjoy the wildflower while they are still blooming.
In preparation of spring cleaning, our March community affair event, KCPA will be collecting business clothes for the Life Training Program at the Bakersfield Rescue Mission next. Kristen Foster reports that the Mission has a new resale boutique near Mama Roombas and all the proceeds go to Mission at Kern County. Last year some of your donations were earmarked for the ritzy resale shop.
Do you like KCPA? Do you like hockey, or to support your local sports teams? Come join KCPA for a night with the Condors; KCPA will have a group at the March 19 Bakersfield Condors game. All are welcome, including your spouses and children. The information on how to purchase tickets is on page 13. We’d love to see you out there!
KCPA’s fiscal year ends at the end of June 2016, which means one thing—we’re looking for new board members. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please feel free to contact any of the current board members for details of their positions, or feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
I hope you have a wonderful March!
