Hi-Desert Star Column #191

Our little Community “Movie under the Stars” evening went off extremely well last Saturday. Organizers Teresa and Ken Sitz and Kip Fjeld did a wonderful job with the ticket sales; snacks and refreshments; as well as setting-up and taking down all the technical equipment required. It was a beautiful, moonless evening, under a canopy of stars. Ken’s hot dogs and popcorn were gobbled up immediately. Teresa had her little bags of “Copper Mountain Mesa Rocks”: delicious chocolate candies which looked just like little rocks; while Mary Helen Tuttle baked yummy muffins for the occasion. Sodas were available in the machine and some folks brought coolers with their favorite beverages. We all enjoyed a fun evening and look forward to next month’s movie: “Tarantula”!

This afternoon from 4pm, the Potluck Party will be happening at the Community Center. We had scheduled a “Suicide Awareness” presentation, by Jasmine Gutierrez from Pacific Clinics, immediately after the Potluck. Unfortunately, this presentation has now been postponed until Saturday October 11th at 11am; following the CMMCA Board meeting, which starts at 10.

We will be holding our newly-forming PTSD Support Group on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month: so the 14th and 28th of October, starting at 6pm. This Group is for those of us who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, whether military or civilian: I will be there. The setting is informal; sharing and caring are encouraged. Car-pooling is a possibility; let us know what you need. Snacks and refreshments will be available. Please join us at the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center, located at 65-336 Winters Road in Far North Joshua Tree! You can email me at or message us on our Facebook page: Copper Mountain Mesa Community.

We now have two websites: the one Bob Deloyd has hosted for years, at which has all the Archives of Columns going back 15 years, useful tips, Bob’s blog, photos, etc. Our newest website is hosted by Teresa and Ken Sitz at, containing pertinent information, membership payments and renewals, and a blog. Stay well!
