2021 Holiday Luncheon Pictures

Pictures from the recent Holiday Luncheon have been posted in the Gallery. Use the link on the left side of the page to view them.


We have had two very successful luncheons recently, one at Glenn Annie Golf in Santa Barbara and one at the Santa Maria Inn in Santa Maria.  Food was great, members had a great time and really enjoyed seeing each other again.   In an abundance of caution, we required all who wished to attend to be fully vaccinated.

We, the Board of Directors, were so enthused about the success of these two luncheons, that we have planned our December Christmas luncheon to be centrally located, equally available to both North and South County members.   Reserve the date, December 7th, for our holiday luncheon at the Marriott Hotel in Buellton.  Look for the reservation form in our newsletter or click here


As the pandemic crises slowly eases away, we are planning social outings and events for our members.   We were negotiating with the Dodgers Management for some great seats, but unfortunately, what we wanted was not available so we cancelled this year's trip.     

Sensorio Light Show: We had a very successful event in Paso Robles.  See the photos in our Gallery.

We are aware of our commitment to provide enjoyable, educational events for our members, and we are working to resume our exciting programs with your safety in mind, but some major events are still limited at this time due to the new Covid outbreaks. We greatly appreciate your membership, and we look forward to again being a big part of your retirement life. If you have any questions regarding RESBC events, or any suggestions for future events and outings, please use the "Contact" link in the menu on the left. 

Please remember, our member's health and safety are our topmost priority, therefor we ask for attendees to be vaccinated and wear masks.  We sincerely hope we can end that requirement soon.


Thank you for all your responses to our surveys.  Your answers are very important to us and help guide us in our efforts to provide safe and exciting luncheons and events for you, our members.  Please make sure we have your correct email address in case we want to contact you about exciting local events or happenings.


RESBC’s Scholarship Application Period Now Open!  

In 2022 RESBC will fund two $3,000 scholarships. The period to apply began October 15, 2021 and will close January 15, 2022. The scholarships will be awarded in May 2022.

RESBC is partnering with the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, who will administer the application and review process, and make the awards. The two RESBC scholarships will be awarded to children and grandchildren of its members, including those students who live outside California. New or continuing college students must apply through the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara website: (  

Applicants must be enrolled full time and attend a college that is Title IV eligible (for Federal financial aid). Students attending vocational education programs are also eligible to apply for the RESBC scholarships. Applicants must have a 2.0 GPA to apply and age is not a factor in the award process.

Because High School graduates in Santa Barbara County may receive free tuition and books at SBCC (for two years) and Alan Hancock (for one year), they are not eligible to apply for the RESBC scholarship awards while attending these two community colleges. However, when they finish their local college education, they are eligible to apply for these RESBC scholarships.

It’s noted that the majority of the organizations in the California Retired County Employees Association fund scholarships for their members' children and/or grandchildren. Providing these scholarships underlines RESBC’s goal to provide new benefits for its members.
