The Wonder Valley Community Meeting was very informative, as usual. These great monthly meetings are organized and moderated by our MAC Representative Teresa Sitz. During the meeting, Teresa introduced our new Special Districts Coordinator Ric Figueroa, and County Fire Captain Mike Bilheimer gave a presentation and answered many questions from the audience.

Karen’s Commentary: Monday was my last day as the Interim Wonder Valley Special Districts Coordinator. It was fun, but tiring. My personal goal was to get the building straightened out and organized, and I achieved that goal, but boy, am I pooped! I’m more than ready to be a lazy retired bum again. I’ll still be a volunteer at the Book Program and the food distributions and will check in with Ric now and then to find out how things are going, but I can see that he’s very capable and will do a great job. So thank you to everyone who helped me out in the last four months . . . I hope to see you at our cool – and organized – community center!

Darlene’s Commentary: Our Wonder Valley Community Center has a new Coordinator, Mr Ricardo Figueroa (also known as Ric). He is very nice, easy to talk to and has a great smile. I do believe that Ric will fit right in with we Wonder Valleyites. Welcome, Mr Ric!

Handy Hint: The perforations on the ends of your aluminum foil box are for creating end locks that are meant to keep the roll secure inside the box. Many similar products, such as plastic wrap, come equipped with the same feature so you’ll never rip the whole roll out of the box while attempting to tear off just a single piece.
