Hi-Desert Star Column #211

Our little Community has been bathing in this glorious weather we’re having. I feel so sorry for all you Neighbors living in colder climes; wish we could send you some sand and warm sunshine!

Turnout for our monthly Breakfast was terrific last Saturday morning. Unfortunately, I had overtaxed myself the previous week - stressing out about my Biology midterm - and felt too ghastly to serve at our Breakfast. However, everyone pulled together and did a marvelous job, thank you so much!

The previous week, on the last Saturday of January, the Potluckers gathered with delicious dishes to share. Chicken and dumplings with honey glazed carrots and upside down cake; broccoli corn bread; fruit trays, Vegetable lo mein and secret chili casserole; along with Tamale pie and key lime pie, pea salad and cherry kool aid pie. Yvonne Francis brought her chicken noodles with cranberry sauce; there were chips and Charles Lange gave $. Event Organizer, Mary Koval said: “It was a great turnout, with lots of good conversations. There will be Valentine surprises at the Saturday February 28th Potluck.” Thanks Mary!

The Artists’ reception at the Copper Mountain College “Invention, Reinvention” Art show is today: February 14th, at the Ada Hatch Center on Rotary Way, by the College. The Party starts at 6pm; three winning Artists will be awarded prize money and will talk to us about their Artwork, style etc. There’s some wonderful Art to be seen, most of the pieces are available for purchase. Hope to see you there.

The Copper Mountain College First Annual Health Sciences/Nursing Program Open House will be held on Saturday February 28th from 9am to 3pm, at the CMC Bell Center. Registered Nursing Program Director Christi Blauwkamp and Vocational Nursing Co-ordinator, Kathleen Wahl organised this Open House to promote our Health Sciences and Nursing Program. Surprisingly, many local residents are unaware of our outstanding Community College, just off Highway 62 on Rotary Way in Joshua Tree. For information call 760-366-3791 x5801. Join us for this Open House, familiarize yourself with our gorgeous campus and bring all your friends and Neighbors; stay well!
