Our President, Nancy Pollard, attended the 2019 District 5240 Conference this past weekend in Santa Ynez, California. Here is a picture of Nancy and other Bakersfield Presidents with their club flags about to walk in the District 5240 Parade of Clubs.
We held our monthly club social event on Wednesday, October 9, 2019, by meeting at the Portrait of A Warrior Gallery on Eye Street in Bakersfield. We were given a very informative tour by Ms. Lili March. This Gallery has so many moving and touching things about it. But, the most moving part was seeing these hand-painted portrait of each soldier who has died since 911 and reading about their lives and who they were and the families that they left behind. If you didn't know the human toll that a war can have on a person or a family, you knew it when you read these individual soldier's stories and the families that they have left behind to deal with a loss of a loved one. To say this was a moving and somber event is an understatement. After being moved by this Gallery, we all walked across the street to Sandrini's and enjoyed dinner, drinks and each other's company. Mr. Robin Paggi (aka Pat Paggi) and Mr. Amy Smith (aka Zane Smith) also joined us.
This weekend, Centennial Interact club attended the EmpowerHER breast cancer awareness month event and supported our local warriors. They helped with registration, handed out goody bags and treats and helped with set up and clean up. Great job Interactors who attended.
On Friday, October 4, 2019 morning, Robin, Amy, and Nancy attended the Bakersfield City School District Partners in Education Breakfast as guests of Mt. Vernon Elementary School principal, Mrs. Xochitl Prieto. The District, which is the largest elementary school district in California, has expanded its after school programs; students at all of the schools have the opportunity to attend the STEAM Academy classes that are offered during expanded school hours. Later at the school, Mrs. Prieto gave an overview of the Mt. Vernon Elementary School new expanded after school program and provided information about the classes they will have for the students. She also conducted a tour of the school and invited guests to step into some classrooms for a few minutes to see teachers and students in action---teaching, coaching, and learning.
At our meeting on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Cecil talked about the concert fundraiser at the end of April 2020. We are looking to double the club's profit. We will be the first club putting on a concert. He also made it clear that if we do this, we need to focus first on selling sponsorships before individual sales. Then, out own Twilight club member, Anselmo Moreno, gave an informative and insightful presentation about Identity Theft and Data Breach. According to Anselmo, there are four kinds of data breaches, Credit data breach, IRS ID theft, DMV identity theft and Medical ID theft. Anselmo emphasized keeping your personal information secure, not providing it to others unless absolutely necessary for the service you are requesting, and review your credit reports often.
Thanks to Mr. Amy Smith(aka, Zane Smith), the Kern County Rotaract Club met at the Boys and Girls Club of Kern County. They learned all about the Boys and Girls Club and even received a tour from Zane. Rotaract Club President, Noah Salinas, and a few lucky members also received beautiful art pieces from the children themselves.
Centennial Interact Club held its first meeting of the year and they were kind enough to share some photos with us. What a turn out it looked like. At their meeting, they covered what Interact is, they introduced their board members and informed everyone about exciting events coming up like the MADD run this past Saturday and JJ's Legacy Got the Dot program. They had over 100 people in attendance.
The Centennial Interact Club held its first event of the year, the MADD run! They had a total of 24 volunteers, including lots of brand new faces.
