Enjoyed the opportunity to help Beaumont celebrate its 100th anniversary. Also good to see some good people, like Lyle Millage (one of Beaumont's most valuable and loyal citizens), Art Welch (there as a representative of soon-to-be former Assemblyman Paul Cook, who was just elected to the U.S. Congress from another district), a reporter from the Record Gazette (where I used to work) and some other familiar faces. We came early so there weren't too many people there, yet. Good to see the Beaumont Kiwanis Club members out in force operating a food booth. As a two-time Kiwanis President (Chino and Banning), I always enjoy seeing Kiwanis Club members serving their community. I think I would like to some day get back into a service club, like the Beaumont Kiwanis, if they would have me. Also saw Beaumont-Cherry Valley Rotarians and Beaumont Lions members there serving their community. When I worked for the City of Chino Hills in San Bernardino County, as the Public Information Officer I was a coordinator of that city's fifth anniversary of incorporation. We were taking baby steps, compared to Beaumont's 100th, an honor Banning is also celebrating. Two cities that have faces their challenges over the years, overcoming the by-passing of the Pass Area by the I-10 in the late 1950s to nice cities of today. Congratulations to both of our Pass Area cities, and in particular to Beaumont on its celebration this past Sunday, Nov. 18 at city hall.
