2024 Q2 Newsletter Available

If you look in the Newsletter area (link to the left of most pages) you should find the 2024 Quarter #2 (ie: April, May, June) Newsletter is available for viewing.

New Picture Galleries

We are trying to keep up with the events and post the pictures here for everyone to enjoy.  Unfortunately, I (Tony) am not a website expert and need lots of help uploading and maintaining.   Some new pictures will be uploaded soon.  Take a look in the Gallery area (to the left) and you should find new picture galleries. Each gallery is like a folder holding the pictures for a particular event or occasion.   I, and the RESBC Board, greatly appreciate the assistance from Claude R. for helping to upload informaiton into our website.

Do you know anyone who is familiar with or acquainted with websites maintenance? Please have them contact us. :)

Event Pictures

Pictures will be posted in the Gallery usually within a few weeks after the event.  They can be see by using the link on the left side of the page to view them.   


We had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day luncheon at the Glen Annie Golf Club in Goleta on March 13th. We filled the room with 80 members!  The event sold out within 10 days after the newsletter was received!  

Here's a heads-up on our summer luncheon.   It will be on June 13th at the Santa Maria Inn. Last year's event was a huge success,  we had a record number of 103 members registered!  Wow!  Can we break that record again this year?  As of today (June 6th, we have 102 reservations!) The Santa Maria Inn will be serving a super delicious Mexican buffet lunch.  We will have many very beautiful door prizes to be raffled off, and some are actually imported from Mexico by yours truly.   See the details in our last newsletter which should have been received early May.  Or, look in our Newsletter section for the 2nd Quarter Newsletter for you to read or download.   Contact Tony on the message line if you have any questions.

For those of you who have difficulty with the QR code for registering, call me, Tony Manuel, right away if you are interested in attending a function.  We decided on the on-line registration process to make it more fair for events with limited seating.  We have received some mail registrations within a few days, others have taken a week to arrive.  The QR code registers you with date and time, so it's first come first registered.  


In the past, we've had really enthusiastic trips to the Dodgers ballgame, and the trip last year was  Dodgers vs Colorado Rockies.  All seats and additional purchased seats were sold out.  It was a great trip, and photos are posted in the Gallery section.

However, this year we had difficulties with the Dodger's sales department.  Our "usual" section is not available to us, and instead we were offered seats behind 3rd base, in full sun exposure.   Additionally, we could not sit together as a group, but would be kind of scattered around that section.  For that reason, we decided to pass on a Dodgers stadium trip this year.

In January, we attended an awesome show at the Pantages Theater in LA.  The show was MJ the Musical, very popular and highly acclaimed.  Again, even though we purchased a total of 80 seats, we were completely sold out.  Photos are posted in the Gallery section.   That was a new record for RESBC!

We had another great social event on May 29th, 2024.  We traveled to the Getty Museum. We were totally sold out again, which was a good feeling for the Board members. It means we planned and chose something interesting to our members. 

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. We ask for ideas from you, our members, on what kind of events you would like RESBC to plan.  We would love YOU, our members, to join our Event Planning Team for fresh event ideas as well as help in planning or executing future social events.  Contact President Tony or Secretary Mark if you are interested in joining the Team.  Job duties would be light, and occasional.   


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.   Right now we have suggestions for Sensorio in Paso Robles, Reagan Library, whale watching boat tour, PCPA theater or Great Melodrama theater.  Let me hear more suggestions for this year or next year.

Next year in January we have another very exciting social event planned.  Can't tell you yet, you have to wait for the official announcement in the newsletter.  I'm going, for sure!



Our Board of Directors have done a wonderful job guiding our organization over the last few decades.  Our current officers have been on the Board for almost 10 years, and we are all ready to move on to other adventures.  We need YOU as members of our Board to help guide our organization in the coming years.  We need you, RESBC members.  Please contact our President or Secretary, use the "Contact" tab on the left of this page.  Please consider this request seriously.
