The Whitmor's cleaning up Stallion.

The CSD wants to give a special shout out to the Whitmore family. The Whitmores have always instilled in their kids to be respectful of others and of the environment.

About four years ago Darin began mowing along his roadside all the way to the mailboxes to keep it safe and clear for others.  One year his daughter Kenzie (now 10 years old) wanted to help, but along the way discovered a lot of trash as well.  That's when the Whitmores decided to start picking up trash in the neighborhood.  Kenzie and her brother Wyatt would love to see others out picking up trash in the community and they saw a big need for cleaning up our Horsethief Lake area.  

Picking up trash in your own community is a rewarding task and we couldn't be more proud of this amazing family for caring Stallion Springs and its beauty so much!  Thank you Whitmores, we appreciate you.

Stallion Springs CERT

Dave Cox, Stallion Springs CERT Lead, was happy to report that approximately 400 local residents received their vaccinations which were the most for a single day to this date in Tehachapi. Stallion Springs CERT, you are awesome, CERT Strong, Stallion Strong. Thanks again to Gary Crowell, Chief of Police; Dave Cox, Stallion Springs CERT, want to thank the CERT team for their attendance at the Adventist Health Tehachapi ValleyHospital COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic this past weekend. It was greatly appreciated. They received rave reviews from the Tehachapi Hospital staff and also from Crowell for their participation and performance. Because of this, Adventist Health is planning to vaccinate 1,000 residents in the next upcoming event - almost triple the 400 residents vaccinated last weekend.

 On behalf of the Stallion Springs Police Department, Chief Crowell said, "I would like to personally thank you for your recent contribution of time to the Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley COVID-19 mass vaccinations event on January 30.  I am humbled and very proud of all your hard work and dedication not only to Stallion Springs, but for all of Tehachapi. This event could not have been a success without you."
