“The Happiest Place” author unknown: “The happiest place on Earth for me is where my Lord would have me be. The happiest thing that I can do is work my Lord has called me to. The happiest path my feet can make, is that I tread for Jesus’ sake.  The happiest sight my eyes can see is sight of Christ like purity. The happiest sound my ears can hear is that my Savior draweth near.

The Moreno Valley City Council has established a Local Vendor Preference. They approved a new purchasing ordinance with the intent of enhancing local vendor competitiveness when bidding on materials and supplies purchased by the City. The preference applies only to businesses located within Moreno Valley and equals one percent (1%), which represents the City’s portion of sales tax generated on sales transactions.

Purchases not subject to sales tax would not qualify for the local vendor preference. For further information contact Division Manager Rix Skonbery at (951) 413–3190 or rixs@moval.org .

For the last month I have travelled quite a bit. For Mother’s Day, I was in Tucson, AZ. It was hot but very nice.  Met some very wonderful people. I travelled to San Diego, stayed at a hotel downtown, ate at the greatest restaurant, “Downtown Fish Joint” the service was off the hook, and the owner and his wife were wonderful people.  This past Saturday, I was invited to a play in Upland at the Grove Theatre to see “Church Basement Ladies.” This was going to be the final performance but because of popular demand it has been extended through July. If you want to have a great time and laugh yourself tired as I did, I encourage you to go see the “Church Basement Ladies” at the Grove Theatre. (909) 920–4343 or www.grovetheatre.com.  Next week, I will write about the “Apron” from this play. One of the cast members in the play is our very own Miss Sherri L. Jones. Sherri is one of the praise team singers and also directs the choir. She is a wonderful lead singer also at COPIM. Do go, you will enjoy yourself.

Be Blessed!
