Fawnskin Wranglers!

YMCA Camp Whittle is hosting families for a wrangling weekend. Participants get to spend the weekend riding and learning about horses but swimming, arts and crafts, and a lot more activities are planned. The wrangler event is open to the public and is family-oriented so no alcohol allowed!

The price is $150 per person (14 years old and up), $95 per person (children five to 13), children four and under are FREE! This includes your lodging, meals and programming. Programming begins on Saturday morning. Sunday is half day of activities with lunch being served as the last meal of the day. For more details please call (909) 866-3000 x241.

Moose Lodge 2085

Moose Lodge 2085 is scheduled to host a poker run to Holcomb Valley August 27, 2011 at 10:00am. Meet at the Moose Lodge and be sure to pack a lunch with refreshments. The last run was a lot of fun and frivolity. Guests are welcome and lodge members are encouraged to sign ’em up in hopes of earning free membership for next year–you need two new members to get that.

Now word on the street is that Randi and her crew are planning to serve up chicken fettuccine so put that on your list. WOTM 359 (Women of the Moose) dinners are always a good deal and great tasting–plus it is always good to support Moose Charities and catch up with other members.


Corvette club members come to Big Bear on a regular basis but this Saturday, August 27th, the National Corvette Restorers Society invites the public to drop by the Big Bear City Airport from 9:00am to 2:00pm to view 25 classic Corvettes. The competition showcases cars in four categories (exterior, interior, mechanics and undercarriage).

The National Corvette Restorers Society is dedicated to the restoration, preservation, history and enjoyment of Corvettes so drop on by–no charge to drool!

Captain John’s Marina

So Fawnskin is once again a flurry of activity this weekend. Captain John’s been holding out on me again but I caught this down the the Fawnskin Post Office–where Postmaster Mike is doing a mighty fine job BTW.

Babes on Boards down at Fawn Harbor is very popular with the ladies and so it is getting more and more crowed each week.

However, I think any excuse to get down lakeside is always a good one so I might see you on Sunday!

Fawnskin’s Mayor Race

Bob & Kathi Harper’s fundraiser will be Sunday, August 28, 2011 from 5:00pm until 7:00pm. The Jazz & Champagne Boat Party will take off from Captain John’s Marina and is a donation of $20 per person.

Kathi and Bob Harper moved to Fawnskin in 2004, after 25 years in Orange County and Oceanside where they both worked in the Orange County DA’s Office. Kathi worked as a Prosecutor and Bob as a DA Investigator. Prior to that Bob was a Detective with the Brea Police Department and Kathi was an Adjunct Professor of Law at Western State Law School.

So does that mean if they get voted in that we will finally have law and order around these parts?

Although the Harpers originally planned to retire and enjoy themselves, Kathi started volunteering for DOVES (Domestic Violence Education & Services. Next thing you know, she was on the Board of Directors, and then became the Executive Director. She is also President of the Big Bear Valley Chapter of the American Association of University Women.

Bob is US volunteer for the US Forest Service and Discovery Center but has been an active paid call firefighter at our Fire Station 96 for the past 3 years. He is keeping busy at the Big Bear Middle School too serving as a teacher’s aide and campus supervisor. Rumor has it that he is also an active Moose.

The Harpers have a daughter, Amy, who lives in Oceanside with their 12-yr-old granddaughter Molly, and another granddaughter, Sinead.

Okay, gotta go–GG’s been a busy gal. But remember, better late than never!
