Event Pictures

Pictures from the recent luncheons and social outings have been posted in the Gallery. Use the link on the left side of the page to view them.


We had very successful and well-attended luncheons this year at the Timbers Restaurant in Santa Barbara, and the Glen Annie Golf Club in Goleta.  See the pictures on our Gallery page.  This year we are planning a different type luncheon.  It will be a Santa Maria Style BBQ at Waller Park in Santa Maria. Linguica, Tri-Tip, Chicken, desserts, what more can you ask for??? Make your reservation now as we are limited to the number of guests allowed in Area 5.

Our December Christmas Luncheon will be at the Marriott Hotel in Buellton.  We had a fabulous time last year, dinner was fantastic and our Board went all out with decorations and door prizes.  Mark the event date of December 8th on your calendars.  See the details and reservation form in our October newsletter.

Also, keep your calendars open for our next outing!  See below.  


We had really enthusiastic trips to the Dodgers vs Giants ballgame, and the bonus was that the Dodgers swept the 4-game series.  Yippee!

We also had a great trip to the Pantages Theater in LA.  After a stop at the LA Farmers Market for food and shopping, we saw the stage play Moulin Rouge.  What a great show!  

The Board is planning another outing to Hearst Castle.  The date is not yet finalized, but the trip will include a dinner at the Madonna Inn, as well as a special surprise at the Hearst Castle during our tour.  Watch for details in your next newsletter.

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, therefore we ask for attendees to be vaccinated, and wearing  masks is optional unless required by state or county regulations.  We sincerely hope those requirements will end 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 is now closed.  

In 2022 RESBC funded two $3,000 scholarships. The scholarships were awarded in May 2022.   The next application period will open October 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.
