What's Up in Bear Valley Springs?

The dog park in our community is still being improved. The Tailwaggers Group has raised $12,000 to purchase and put up a permanent dog park playground. Last year, they put in 25 trees to provide some much needed shade and the attractive signs you see displayed near it. With all the playground equipment, it will be called BVS Doggie Dream Park. One of the most instrumental people in getting this park started years ago was Katy Jacobson. Katy has since moved away but she is still actively involved. Stay tuned for future developments.

Keep in mind that November 11, Veteran’s Day, is coming up quickly and the usual ceremony will be held at Cub Lake. This is a great opportunity to honor our veterans!

The Cultural Arts Association has extended the very popular art show into December. The art gallery is in the lounge of Oak Tree Country Club, 29500 N. Lower Valley Road in Bear Valley Springs, and can be visited any day of the week. The art is available for sale and can be purchased by contacting Michelle Miller or Jeanette Roye. Their numbers are available at the BVS Country Club.

The Volunteers in Police Service (V.I.P.S.) are looking for new applicants. Some of the activities that they engage in are vacation home patrol checks, traffic control, patrolling community events, working the front counter and, finally, assisting with the Challenge The Bear Cycling event. To apply, contact Captain Jay Carlyn, (702) 591-6893.

Residents will have seen the new logo sticker for the BVS community. The stickers can be picked up at the Whiting Center for a mere $2.

Do you need a notary public on occasion? Did you know that the Association provides this service? You don’t need to drive to Tehachapi. It costs $15 per signature, and an appointment is required.

Bear Valley Springs is a private gated community in which the residents pay an annual association amenities fee. To visit a non-member or non-resident must arrange with a friend or family member in the community for a guest pass that would permit them to engage in the activities. Guest passes will be checked.
