June 23rd 2019 we held our annual MHRIA General Meeting and BBQ. Around noon President John Kuntzmann started the meeting portion of the day by asking everyone to take a moment to remember members of our community who passed this last year: Glenn Dolfin, Neil Jorgensen, Rex Lindsay, and Katherine (Kay) Beaver McGeehon. Their spirit remains with us.
Current Officers Jill Leber, Vice President, Rochelle Barsnick, Treasurer, and Sharon Kuntzmann, Secretary/Webmaster were introduced. We then thanked the Lick Observatory staff who helped get the pcinic grounds available and improved for our use. Thank you Kostas, Joe and Darleen. We had several special guests including Mario from PG&E, Deputy Sheriff Eddie Carballo, and CAL Fire from both Sweetwater and Smith Creek. Thank you for your time and sharing information concerning the back country’s needs.
The MHRIA Board thanks all the people who stepped in to work setting up, cooking, and cleaning up for the success of the day. John also announced that next year’s general meeting will be our election year for both Directors and Officers. Please think about what you can do for our community.
The meeting was then adjourned to enjoy the BBQ, meat cooked by Ron Carroll, followed by the ever popular raffle.
Here are some memories captured:
Services honoring Glenn Dolfin’s life will be held at the Santa Nella National Cemetery on June 11th at 11 AM. Please plan on arriving at 10:30. Glenn was our local Deputy Sheriff Officer and later MHRIA Executive Director for many years.
