                     Reflecting on Leadership Redding

                     In the Sunday, November 8, 2009, edition of the Record Searchlight, there was an
                     article about a decision made by US Eastern District Judge Craig Kellison. I read
                     the article with interest and had some understanding of his reasoning because I
                     know the judge. There are others who might understand Judge Kellison’s thinking
                     because they know him, too. Those include a Simpson University Provost, a stock
                     broker, a chiropractor, a Sears Lead Technician, a woodworking business owner,
                     a Redding Police Department officer, a service technician for a heating and air
                     conditioning business, the CFO for Win-River Casino and the regional director
                     of the California Conservation Corps. This very diverse group of people was
                     in the 2006-07 Leadership Redding class with Judge Kellison. Membership in
                     Leadership Redding helps us understand what happens in our community. It
                     provides an appreciation for the complex nature of local politics, business and
                     social life.
                                                                                                         The Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community       Join the Women’s Fund in connecting women who
                     There is no other program in Redding that builds connections among such a           Foundation started in 2008 as a group of 10 women       give to needs that matter. Donations of all amounts

                     that this approach results in a vibrant, caring community.                                                                                  collective philanthropy, visit

                     My continuing experiences with LR have given me insights about our region and       contributions, the ever expanding membership of the
                     friendships with caring people who are working for a better community.              Women’s Fund hopes to improve the lives of women
                                                                                                         and families in the greater Redding area.
                     I highly recommend joining Leadership Redding if you seek rewarding experiences
                     I have had. For information about applying for our program, please visit our        The Women’s Fund makes grant funds available to local
