Hi-Desert Star Column #189

Our little Community enjoyed another well-attended first Saturday Breakfast at the Center last week. We served 65+ folks, including several children. It was lovely to see all the familiar faces and welcome a few new ones; among which: Jasmine and Linda, who we were privileged to welcome to our Community Gathering. These amazing Women and their colleagues at Pacific Clinics in Yucca Valley, reach out to so many people in the Morongo Basin. With the help of Pacific Clinics and under their expert guidelines, we are organizing a bi-monthly support group, at our Community Center, to help people who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; both military and civilian. We are still in the planning stages and the Board has not quite given final approval, but everyone seems to think it’s a marvellous idea. Thank you for joining us Jasmine and Linda, yay for all your good work! The Copper Mountain Mesa Community Association’s Board Meeting is going on this morning from 10am. We will be discussing the PTSD group, amongst many other exciting topics and Teresa Sitz has promised to be there “with bells on”. Teresa and her husband Ken are so excited about being part of this Neighborhood and they are very knowledgeable, organized and action-oriented. Teresa is now on the admin panel with me, contributing her talents and skills to our Facebook page : “Copper Mountain Mesa Community”. Check out the photos, blog and stuff: then ‘Like’ us to receive all the updates and News from our neck-o’-the-Desert! Teresa and Ken, along with everyone’s favorite Neighbor, Kip Fjeld; will be putting on another “Movie under the Stars” night at the Community Center, next Saturday, September 20th, around sunset-ish. This month, we get to watch “Inferno”! Neighbors are all excited about it, because last month’s Movie night was such a brilliant success, receiving rave reviews from around the Morongo Basin! Tonight, Copper Mountain College is holding the annual “Taste of Morongo” event, put on by the Rotary Club, from 6-8pm. Tickets are $20 per person and delicious food is provided by some of the Morongo Basin’s finest Restaurants. Stay well!
