The Loop's Local Scene

Tehachapi's business community came together on November 30 to bid a final farewell to Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce President Ida Perkins. The Celebration of Life was held in the chapel at Wood Family Funeral Home. Along with her family, speakers included State Senator Shannon Grove, State Assembyman Vince Fong, County Supervisor Zack Scrivner and City Councilwoman Susan Wiggins. Prayers were lead by Pastor Kevin Caudle. A reception followed at Woods Pavilion with friends sharing fond memories.

Ida Perkins passed away on November 4 following a lengthy illness. The 63-year-old Perkins had been head of the Tehachapi Chamber for many years, spearheading the Tehachapi Mountain Festival, Businesses and Citizen of the Year, Tehachapi's Business Showcase and other events. She loved Tehachapi and her loss will create a huge void in the community. Our thoughts go out to her family.
