The only way to make changes is to push people into understanding the reality of the water issues we are having. Since most people are so far-removed from the drastic measures it takes to get water to the household—and even to grow our own food, there is definitely a significant knowledge failure occurring and it needs to be corrected.

“We’ve never experienced a one year drought this drastic. We’ve had one and two year droughts where each year was built on the one before, but this is the lowest water year that anyone can remember around here.”
That’s Greg Paape the San Joaquin Fish Hatchery manager. The hatchery is at the base of the every so barren Millerton Lake on the border between Fresno and Madera counties.

Tuesday, 6/4: Taps - Military Burial Ceremony for WWII Veteran, Robert Ayala (Fresno and Santa Nella)

My father, Robert Ayala, is an Army World War II veteran. Photos available through the Craigslist link above.  He fought in the “forgotten battle,” AKA the Aleutians campaign where Japanese soldiers occupied U.S. soil on the islands of Attu and Kiska in Alsaka. He helped reclaim the island of Attu for the United States in a bloody battle. It was “forgotten” because the U.S. Government didn’t want to alarm the population by informing them that the enemy was on U.S. territory. He received a Good Conduct Medal, as well as an Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal.

Background on Aleutians:

My father was moved to Fresno in 2008 to be near my sister and her husband, who relocated to Fresno a few years earlier. I am attending the funeral from Boston and New York (I reside in both cities), and return to the East Coast this upcoming Wednesday. Because he knows so few people in the area, I am inviting anyone who would to pay their respects to a WWII veteran to join either the funeral ceremony in Fresno, or the Military Burial Ceremony at the San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery in Santa Nella.

Though not a requirement, it would be nice to know if you’ll be stopping by (please email at above link).

Any big (or small) events concerning Lindy hop in Central Valley?

I’ve heard there’s a dinner/dance at Eagle Field, which is WWII themed. I don’t remember many details, other than it’s on June 1. Perhaps some other Tumblr Hoppers in the area can fill in the gaps of my memory on this?

There’s a fly-in with a dinner/dance on June 1st, 2013, at Eagle Field in #Firebaugh, #CA. It sounds like a lovely event! Eagle Field has aircraft that dated back to WWII. 

Here are the details Fresno Swing Dance (they teach weekly dance lessons) received from the event coordinator:

Zoom The ninth annual Fresno Film Festival, presented by Fresno Filmworks at the historic Tower Theatre, will feature seven exclusive programs of short and feature-length movies, including special filmmaker appearances, social gatherings, and Q&A discussions.
Visit Fresno Filmworks’ Web for this weekend’s schedule. 
This is like no other event in Fresno. Jefferson Beavers, board member, introduced me to the organization. Thanks to him, my friend and I attended the viewing of Oscar-nominated shorts, back in March. It was an amazing event! And it was my first time at the Tower Theatre. It was an amazing opportunity! 
Fresno Filmworks does a great introducing independent films to Fresno. This is something organizers felt was lacking in our culture.

Zoom Free historic tours of the Fulton Mall by the Downtown Fresno Partnership.I’m happy to see this back! I stumbled upon a tour, last summer. Although Fresno was sunny and hot, the Fulton Mall is packed with shade-trees and the weather is tolerable. I learned a lot about the historic buildings, the art, and the history of the Fulton Mall. We even took a tour of the Warnors Theatre; one of the most beautiful buildings in Fresno! You’ll find yourself thinking, “What? There’s actually cool stuff in Fresno?”
Details:
First Saturday of the month
10 amTour starts at Warnors Theatre (1432 Fulton St.)
