A Message from our President, Anne Clemons

With COVID cases decreasing across California, we are gradually returning to normal. One sign of normalcy
is the return of events in the Pavilion. Reservations are pouring in, and CBG is scheduling fundraisers, the
Annual Membership Meeting, and a Volunteer Appreciation Event.

We were finally able to hold the first Visitor Center fundraiser. It had been postponed in March 2020. The
fundraiser was a resounding success. There were several anonymous pledges and many donations. Thank
you to all participants and donors!

Thanks also to Jeff Millard for learning to play the Swirl in the Sensory Garden, to Travis Brooks for his guitar
artistry, and Chef Aaron Nielsen’s “Southern Hospitality” for the perfect appetizers. Travis and friends will
join us in the fall for the Thursday food trucks.

The next steps toward building involve many meetings with architect, builders, board members and Clovis
City Planning Department, as well as plans to draw, plans to update, and wish lists to consider.

Thank you to all. Your contributions and talents make dreams come true!
