This month I am pleased to send you a wonderful article written by our Zone 26 End Polio Now Coordinator, PDG Anil Garg. Not only does he provide interesting history and important facts, but he also provides you with access to a number of outstanding links to other resources.

I hope that each of you will find a way to participate in World Polio Day in your club and your district. Mark your calendar to make an online donation that day. What a great way to celebrate our success and to help us End Polio Now!

Yours in Service,

Jim Lewis, Polio Plus Chair.

On September 4th, we had an open discussion about the upcoming Beer Festival scheduled for October 11th. The Event Chair, Dylan Gunning, gave a rundown of the event's progress, Adam Haverstock talked about the current advertising we are doing within the community, and Pam Castro sent around a volunteer sign-up. Our Club is looking forward to a great beer festival to be held at Moorpark College. Tickets are selling fast!



On September 18th, we had the pleasure of hearing from our past member, Jodi Santino, Chair of the Moorpark College Foundation, and her colleague Dr. Bernie Luskin, President & CEO of Moorpark College. Dr. Luskin spoke about the amazing programs Moorpark College offers to it's students. They also wanted to announce the latest resident living at the Moorpark College's Teaching Zoo, a 9 month old lion cub. Once he is grown, all of Moorpark will be able to hear his 5 mile radius roar.

Performance Nursery in Moorpark has been evicted by Southern California Edison! As we are all aware, Tom Lucas, has been a very strong community supporter for Moorpark and it’s residents for almost three decades.

It’s so disappointing that Southern California Edison would take a stance to force eviction – and very quickly – of Performance Nursery, its 32 employees and 460,000 plants. It’s just not a stance by SCE to support our community.

For 28 years Performance has operated on the nearly 42 acres of SCE land from Tierra Rejada Road to the Arroyo Simi, helping the Moorpark community by donating or loaning plants for Moorpark High School’s graduation ceremonies; donating/loaning plants to local Catholic and Lutheran churches for Palm Sunday ceremonies and donating/loaning plants to local Boys and Girls Clubs.

The company also has donated or loaned plants and vehicles to the Rotary Club of Moorpark’s Annual Civil War Reenactment; donated/loaned plants to artists for use in their displays, booths at trade shows, or in their art; donated time, roses and man-hours, and hosted auctions for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

It has donated a venue and hosted wine-tasting events for Women and Children’s groups; and worked with and donated plants and man-hours to Make-A-Wish foundation. There is more.

What is perplexing regarding the SCE demand to quickly vacate is it could result in the destruction of thousands upon thousands of plants, since in the little time allotted the nursery cannot move them all. Is forcing destruction of plants part of SCE’s mission?

Then there’s the loss of jobs to Moorpark, plus the cost to SCE and its rate-payers. If the land is vacated there would be loss of lease income; costs related to weed and graffiti abatement and dust control – all now provided by Performance.

People who live near the land should be mortified. Vacant land there will attract trespassers, vandals, vagrants, off-road vehicles and more. Everyone should contact SCE and the California Public Utilities Commission to put a stop to this tragedy.
