It never rains in California…

…only according to that sappy pop song. Are you building your Ark yet?This is quite a storm we are having here in Chico and around parts of California. It was wonderful to be able to stay indoors and work on projects and prepare for service tomorrow and for our monthly Board meeting. (Remember, it is…

A week long appreciation

Last Sunday, following service we had an important Community Meeting. It was so heartening to have 72 people stay for lunch ( salad made by our teens and pizza generously donated by Warren Lofftus) and to gather for the informational update. Monte Buckhold presented facts, charts and insight that helped us to clarify and understand…

Happy Autumn!

Hello community! Happily, today at 2:18 p.m. we could officially acknowledge the equinox and the onset of the fall season. Ahhhhhh… It has been a very busy time here at CNTCSL. On Sunday evening, we had our rousing Laugh-In Variety Show here at the Center. It was a wonderful night of entertainment delightfully written and…

Hello from sunny Chico, California where I am happily vacat…er, staycationing this week! Yes, this is my first week of vacation time this year (the church conferences even though they involve travel, don’t count as vacations) and I have chosen to stay home and not travel nor do e-mail and such. One of the reasons…
