Memorial Day in Bear Valley was honored with a ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial by Cub Lake. The service was opened by Commander, Bill Kritlow. The guest speaker that was Cindy M. Van Bibber, the director for Bakersfield National Cemetery. She spoke on National Cemeteries and their history, back to President Abraham Lincoln. An important part of the ceremony is the induction of those who have reported to their final station. Paul, Bellinger, US Navy Veteran, called out each name and John Pruden, US Navy Veteran, presented a red rose to a survivor of each honoree.
The honorees, whose names have been added to the memorial posts, are Arden Van Peursem, US Army, Vietnam (July 1945-March 2021); Richard B.

The CSD Board has some issues. They are short one member and are unresolved on whether to hold a special election or add another member by appointment. Kathy Carey, in public comments, stated that she really hopes they will add another member to the Board. It costs less to do it by appointment than by special election.
The BVS Garden Club, is hosting speaker Tom Neisler, the general manager of the Tehachapi-Cummings Valley Water District. That should be an interesting and information-filled meeting, taking place at the Equestrian Center, June 17 at 1 p.m.
