This month we’d like to shower kudos on a triple threat. Last year we were in need on a new instructor following the passing of our former Sketching teacher. Ernesto heard about our need and volunteered to teach. Now as the effects of Covid linger on and people are still wary, we have had a few instructors who, on doctor’s orders, have been instructed to not teach. Upon hearing this Ernesto has volunteered again to act as a substitute. Now he will also be teaching Spanish AND Water Color! Ernesto worked for and retired from the San Bernardino Unified School District after 33 years of employment. During that time he worked with an after school program and served as a bilingual tutor. He loves to teach, and is loved by his students. Thanks Ernesto for stepping up when we need you.

Last month we bid a fond farewell to Dave Mitchell, our longtime bookkeeper. Having started with us in February 2001, he and his wife Bonnie decided to retire together. So after 15 years of making sure all our numbers added up, and that we dotted our is and crossed our ts he has decided to take a well earned rest.



However, he wont be gone for good as he is planning on becoming a member and looks forward to coming in and having fun, possibly taking some trips and getting into Wii Bowling. Dave, were sorry to see you go, but look forward to welcoming you back!
