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.

Featured Activity

With the Dog Days of August causing all our dogs to bark, we definitely needed a place to cool down. So the center came to the rescue as a part of us being an official Cooling Center. We held another one of our Ice Cream Parties.

Sponsor Laurel Brown with Home Instead Senior Care helped out by bringing Cookies and Cream ice cream for everyone. However, they had to work for it. The crowd played a bit of 50\'s & 60\'s Trivia for their scoops. Some of the answer the crowd got without much thought. Some of the others caused a bit of head scratching, while some questions left people with that deer in the headlight look.

No matter how they did they all had fun. After all, who cant have fun coming in from the 100 degree plus days into a cool building for ice cream and games? Thanks to everyone who came in to party with us. Special thanks to Home Instead Senior Care for sponsoring the event.
