Big Bear MS Walk Today

As usual, the weather cleared up for this year’s MS Walk. Unfortunately, due to other commitments I doubt I’ll make it to the Big Bear MS Walk today. If you can make it, the event is really fun and a great way to raise funds for a good cause. You can sign up right on the premises, too.

A good number of Big Bear residents always turn out. In addition, to the walk there is entertainment, snacks and cheerleaders along the way. There will also be an after party at Moose Lodge 2085 for volunteers and participants.

This evening is the Evening at the Stacks at the library. This fundraising event is only $15 and benefits the Friends of the Library.

There are many other events taking place across the valley this weekend. If you get a moment, drop by to see me at the Book & Bean today or at Bear Valley Pet & Animal Supply–Noon to 4pm.

In other not so happy news, you might have caught a clip of Captain John on the news last night commenting the boating accident. The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office released the names of the three victims: James Swanson, age 73, of Escondido; Everett Richard Price, age 76, of Escondido; and Romaine Maiefski, age 70, of Oceanside.

Just a reminder, hypothermia is a danger if you fall into the lake water until the weather and water warm up. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incident. It is suspected that the men were out the night before and–safety on the lake is a big issue…remember also that boating and drinking don’t mix.

    it was a wonderful walk – and a look at some of the really good, kind residents of our valley.
