    January 16, 2016 Program:

    Highland City Councilman and retired city manager Sam Racadio on:

    “What makes America Great?”

    As a world traveler, Racadio has observed that no other country is quite like the United States of America.

    As a Peace Corps volunteer and as a city official who has visited with city managers and other city officials in many nations, Racadio marveled at America’s uniqueness.

    While studying at the University of Redlands, Sam became interested in international affairs. He was given an opportunity to work in the US Foreign Service, where he observed that even nations like Great Britain and Australia don’t have the key ingredient we are blessed with.

    We enjoyed hearing Sam’s insights on what makes America Great. Redlands Chapter SAR Directors Meeting December 3

  • December 12 - Chapter Meeting @ 8:30am in the University Club.

    Please note that we are meeting on the second Saturday in December due to the University being shut down the week following and Bon Appetit will not have staff available.

    We will be meeting in the larger room - the University Club – and having our traditional Holiday program where we make a special effort to invite family and friends to join us.

    This year we will again be enjoying the delightful performance put on by The Desert Carolers and the buffet breakfast by Bon Appetit. The cost is $20.00.

    The Desert Carolers are a quartet costumed in traditional Victorian Dickens attire who sing a full repertoire of traditional holiday carols and contemporary favorites. Their experience ranges from Broadway, to major opera companies worldwide. The Desert Carolers are the foremost Caroling group in the Inland Empire and throughout the desert communities.

    Please invite family and friends and join us on Saturday, December 12 @8:30am.
