Monthly Meetings

From October through April, we hold our monthly Luncheon Meetings at 11 am on the second Thursday of each month. 

Below you will find the topic details for each gathering. 



Hearing someone has been diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease triggers most of us to wonder, “Is that in my future?”  For some of us, it is already here . . . perhaps not in ourselves but in family and/or friends.


Our speaker, Janie Barks, will address community resources and let you know what you and the local Alzheimer's Association can do.

Joanne Hardy

Historical Fiction writer, Joanne Hardy, centers her most recent novel, Abandoned, on the early days of railroads and the suffragette movement.


Many of you will have met Joanne in DAR and other community organizations.  It will be an opportunity for those of you who don’t know her to meet this dynamic woman.

Tommy Bahama Style Show

Whether for the desert or for travel we'll be treated to the must-see new fashions.


We are looking for 6-8 models.. All sizes, male and female. Contact Ann Dew if you are willing to wear great clothes and spread Christmas present longings.

Movie Stars, Medal of Honor Winners, Oh My!

Southern Californian Bob Satterfield is often called upon for his interactions with “Our Gang,” notably at the 100th anniversary of Hal Roach’s popular films at the Hollywood Museum last year.

Join us while he shares how he became involved in collecting both Hollywood stories and memorabilia. You can also ask about Medal of Honor recipients if you like.


Educational psychologist, best-selling author, TODAY SHOW contributor and mom, Michele Borba, will share her passion. She has blended 40 years of teaching and consulting experience with the latest science to offer sound, realistic advice to parents, teachers, and child advocates about helping children thrive.

A New Program from Hidden Harvest

When our speaker, Christy Porter, was a Pulitzer Prize photojournalist she became aware of hunger in America.


When she came to our valley she started Hidden Harvest in the early 1990s. It is the only produce rescue organization that provides wages for gleaners. Since that time she has moved forward with additional programs, the newest of which she will share with us.
