What's Up in Stallion Springs?
October 10, 2020
Drive with care, the elk and deer are enjoying the fall. They are out roaming the fields and roads getting ready for winter. The lake is a good place for a drink and a bath to cool off from the hot weather. Be careful while driving through the area. They may be crossing the roads in groups or playing follow the leader with short distances between them. Also, watch out for people watching them from stopped cars.
Where are you getting informed?
"One of my main goals as General Manager is to keep frustration down in the community. Why is it that so many are quick to jump to social media and point fingers or stir the pot? Social media is not a credible source for accurate information and you may be hurting someone, hurting the community or hurting yourself by the post you are making or responding to. Is it really worth your time and energy? I am personally encouraging you all to go right to the source and pick up the phone or stop by and talk to me or our staff for the right information. You will be glad you did. Thank you for your continued support."
– Vanessa Stevens, General Manager
The Stallion Springs CERT team held a farewell drive-by for Rick and Sandy Young on Sunday, September 27 honoring Sandy as our SSCERT Founder, Program Manager, Instructor and Team Lead, from 2003 to 2020. If it weren't for Sandy, Stallion Springs would not have had a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and, of course, Rick supported and joined Sandy in all her time volunteering, hard work to establish, develop, grow, and train and lead SSCERT to the level it has reached today. Sandy made SSCERT a well known, well trained and established CERT Volunteer group in the Tehachapi communities.
Sandy served on our SS CSD Board of Directors for some 13 years with NO absences. No matter where she was in the U.S., she made it her priority to return to Stallion Springs to attend the CSD Board monthly board meetings.
Sandy and Rick are moving to Arizona. Call her or send a card thanking her for her outstanding community service.
Movie night in the park put on by Stallion Springs Parks was a great success. It was an incredible night watching the kids run around and play. Thanks to Stallion Springs General Store and Ashmore Motors for making this happen. Also thank you to the Stallion Springs POA for the candy.
