What's Up in Stallion Springs?
July 20, 2019
Stallion Springs Community Church held Vacation Bible School on July 8-12. The theme of the event was, "Roar Life is Wild, God is Good." An average of 80 kids per day participated. In addition to learning, the kids raised more than $206 to go toward books, art supplies, hygiene products and medical supplies for a Haiti school for kids without a home.
Pastor John Barnes expressed thanks to the amazing team of awesome volunteers who gave so much this week at VBS and to VBS Director Amanda Schneider.
Suicide Prevention Symposium
Kern County Mental Health will hold a Suicide Prevention Symposium on Wednesday, July 31 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Stallion Springs Community Center, 27850 Stallion Springs Drive. The event is free and open to the public.
The symposium will bring together professionals in all areas of mental wellness and suicide prevention from emergency services, behavioral health, veteran services, LGBTQ groups, as well as public and private wellness organizations.
The time is now. Collectively it will be an opportunity to educate, inspire and empower each other to live a happier, healthier life by improving mental health and joining the movement to help prevent suicide.
Do you live alone? Do you live an isolated life? Does your family live in a distant community? Would you like to have someone check on you periodically just to be sure you are doing well?
The Stallion Springs Community Service Unit, citizen volunteers working with the police department, are organizing a program of contact and caring to ensure the safety of our residents who are alone and would appreciate having some one check on them and their wellbeing.
Calls would be to individuals on a prearranged basis. If a problem is detected the appropriate help would be dispatched. This is a volunteer program. If you are interested in this program, contact the CSD and someone will follow up with you.
If you have a life-threatening Emergency, call 911. The Stallion Springs Police Department is dispatched through the Kern County Sheriff's Office.
For non-life-threatening issues, please call (661) 861-3110. You may contact us by email or using the contact information provided on the CSD website, http://www.stallionspringscsd.com.
