Volume 56, No. 3 California State Society Children of the American Revolution Summer 2007
Dear California CAR’s
State President’s Message
As the summer months approach, I pray that you are taking advantage of our great weather,
beautiful coasts, and sunny beaches. Walks in the sunset and fun in the sun IS allowed and IS encouraged.
But, a disclaimer is needed from one pale person to the rest, wear sunscreen. Lots of sunscreen. Use it
wisely and use it well.
It was great to see so many of you at the grunion run a few Saturdays ago. Your support and
enthusiasm keeps me going. I want to personally thank everybody who showed me support and love and
stayed for the entire run. Without you I know that all these events I’m planning would not be a success.
This year, California CAR’s attended not only Western Regional, but Rocky Mountain Regional as
well. And while we were not a dominant state there, our presence was known. At Western Regional,
California State was well represented and I know that I had an absolutely great time. We as a state were able
to show the National Board just what California is all about and many National Board members already
express interest in attending our state conference!
I want to wish everybody a Happy 4th of July. Some of the activities I have seen pictures for and
have heard about were fantastic. The parade in Huntington Beach, which I had the honor of marching in,
was phenomenal. Also the National Bell ringing ceremony at the Ronald Regan Library was fun. They had a great turn out at both
events. Thank you to all the supported our Nation. May the old kettle corn you are saving stay somewhat fresh, and may the glow
lights you bought light up your rooms for nights to come. I hope the fireworks shows you saw were as awesome as the one I saw, (I
had no idea they made smiley faced fireworks), and I hope that no illegal fireworks hurt anybody.
On a more serious note, Mrs. Katrina Dorneman passed away this past week. She was the Senior State Chaplin, and one of
my strongest supporters. She always knew what to say when I needed it, and she and her daughters had a way about them that lit up a
room. I pray that you keep her and her family in your prayers. She will always be remembered, missed, loved, and thought of. I love
you Tara, Tiana, and Mr. Dorneman.
May your summer be filled with lots of fun, surf, sand, and CAR activities.
Keeping the California spirit alive,
California State President
Senior State President’s Message
Dear CAR Members and Friends,
The new C.A.R. program year at both the National and State levels is off to a flying start. Many of our
California members attended regional meetings at both Rocky Mountain in Mesa, Arizona and Western in Olympia,
Washington. They learned about the new National Programs from National President, Katie Marie Stanley and the
California’s own Megan Copsey was sworn in as the Western Regional VP prior to the meeting with many National
Board and Senior National Board members in attendance.
Summer workshops are quickly approaching and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the programs at
the National and State levels. Aimee Clayton, State President will conduct both workshops with the assistance of the
state officers and chairman. All State Officers and State Chairman should plan to attend at least one of the two
workshops. The workshops are scheduled for August 4 in the Sacramento area and on August 11 in Encino. The southern workshop location has
been changed, so please check the information located on the state website.
Bear Facts Summer 2007 Page 1
Senior State Presidents’ Message (continued)
State Conference will be upon us before we know it and this is an election year for both the members and seniors. Information from the
respective nominating committee’s will be mailed to the member and senior boards in November and then posted on the California CAR website for
anyone not receiving a copy and wishing to run for an office. It is important that anyone running adhere to the strict deadlines set by these two
nominating committees so they can complete their work in a timely fashion. All senior offices are elected except for Senior State President. This is
an appointment made by the Senior National Board of Management and the Senior National President.
I look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming C.A.R. activities and wish each society a great C.A.R. year.
Senior State President, CSSCAR
Western Regional News
The Western Regional meeting held on June 22-23 in Olympia, Washington saw several California
members and Seniors in attendance. Megan Copsey, Honorary State President and current Western
Regional Vice President was sworn in by National President Katie Marie Stanley. This years regional
meeting was different as the National Board
presented skits but they also held
workshops to help the members understand
the programs. On Saturday, after a morning of skits and workshops,
members boarded the bus for the Northwest Trek and Slugfest. The
Northwest Trek is a wild animal park which combined natural habitat
enclosures with free range displays. Members could view bears, wolves
and various birds of prey as well as see the buffalo and elk as they
roamed the plains.
2008 Regional Meeting
will be held in the State

California C.A.R. President Aimee Clayton is hoping that all California Kids will learn about Sea Otters this
year and help her raise money to help these very special animals. Do you like surfing the Web? Try visiting
the Monterey Bay Aquarium website at www.montereybayaquarium.org . You’ll get to see live Sea Otters via a
special webcam. There are all kinds of interactive games and suggestions for crafts, activities and field trips.

2. How do Sea Otters use their paws?
3. Where did the Monterey Bay Aquarium get the Sea Otters that live there now?
4. How many Sea Otters live at the Monterey Bay Aquarium?
Learn about Sea Otters and share your photos and ideas with other California kids.

Freedom Ring” National Bell ringing Ceremony
at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and
Museum on July 4. This event commemorates

San Diego County fair, for her artistic creations of a polymer clay cat and a mouse made
from recycled metal parts. Danielle, on behalf of Presidio Hill Society, also won a third top award for a poster depicting

San Antonio Canyon Society Hosts Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific Visit
Did you know that in 1911 there were only about 110 sea otters left in the wild? This
just one of the interesting facts C.A.R. families learned on Sunday, July 8, at the
Aquarium of the Pacific. San Antonio Canyon Society hosted the event at which
State President Aimee Clayton was the special guest.
At 9:45 a.m., families from Juan Crespi (Lucas Borncamp and Aimee and
Deborah Clayton) , Eliza Donner Houghton (Anne Graves), Los Angeles-
Eschscholtzia (Cassidy Aparicio, Society Historian; Gaylene Aparicio, Sr. Society
Historian; and Debbie Palmer, Sr. Society President) and Los Ninos (Brian and
Carol Byrd, Kelly and Nancy Pleskot, Satya, Jordi, Chaiya and Javier Ortiz, and
Nancy and Christine Salgado) Societies joined together with San Antonio Canyon Society President Dominick DiCesare,
members Katie Lech and Michael Stufflebean and seniors Christy DiCesare, Steve and Tracy Lech and Linda Stufflebean
to welcome State President Aimee Clayton to the aquarium.
The highlight of the visit was the 10:45 a.m. program devoted to the sea otter. Animal trainer Michelle introduced
us to the sea otters and gave some background about how the otters
came to live in Long Beach. (They were rescued animals from up
north, but the Monterey Bay Aquarium had no space to keep them.)
She pointed out that, although the sea otters are fuzzy and cute and
like to perform for humans, they are, in fact, wild animals who can
cause harm. Aquarium speaker Charlotte shared the facts on sea
otter life. Sea urchins are sea otters’ favorite foods. If sea otters were
removed from their natural habitats, ocean life would die because sea
urchins eat kelp at the spot where it is anchored to the ocean floor.
Pieces of kelp then rise to the ocean’s surface and float away. If the
sea urchin population were not kept in check by the sea otters, there
would not be enough kelp left to sustain other ocean life.
After the sea otter program, families visited other exhibits in
the aquarium and then met for lunch in the Café Scuba. State President Aimee Clayton was then presented with several
sea otter gifts as souvenirs of her visit.

Each summer, the members and senior from across our region enjoy a great regional meeting put on by our National Board. Did you
ever stop to think, how these young people were able to travel throughout the country for 6-weeks. Each of these National Board
members is committed to making N.S.C.A.R. the best it can be and they pay for their own travel expenses. Many of these young
people work throughout the year so they can bring us the National Programs through fun skits and workshops. The Voyager Pin, was
designed to help raise funds to help the National Board with their expenses during the tour. Honor a member of your society, a special
friend or a senior leader with a Voyager Pin and support our National Board members.
The California State Society, took first place in 2007 for the most new
members admitted to N. S. C. A. R. Let’s make this another record year by
finding those new prospective members and bringing them to a society

For the next two years there is a sale on membership!!! Yes, a SALE!!! For
2007-2009, during the Anniversary of the Endowment Fund celebration, the
application fee for all new members will be rebated back to each society. Each
society may then choose how the money is used. Some societies may decide to use it for programs, while
others may rebate it to the families. However, your society chooses to use these funds, this is a wonderful way
for National to say Thank YOU for all hard work done at the local level to gain new members.
