POSTED February 4, 2014 4:19 p.m.

Don’t forget tomorrow, Feb. 6 is the Community Club dinner meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the clubhouse. The upcoming Spaghetti Dinner will be discussed along with the April car show. Bring a dish to share and help the club in their functions.

Gayle and Don Diltz are great-grandparents! On Jan. 26 Lilliana Faith Serrano was born, weighing in at 3 pounds 8 ounces and was two months early. She is still in the hospital. The parents are Dylan and Deborah of Modesto and grandparents are Korry (Gayle and Don’s daughter) and Brian Mc Gladrey of Utah and Eugenio and Odette Piacentini of Salida. Gayle got to scrub up and touch Lilliana in her incubator. Lilliana grasped Gayle’s finger.

Barb Burroughs and Ellen Wearin just returned from a two-week visit to Seoul, South Korea to see Barb’s son Major Rett Burroughs, wife Justina and 2-year-old son Neal. Rett is serving as a Major in the U.S. Army and is the Director of Special Operations Command Communications in South Korea. Some of the highlights of the visit were tours to the Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, the War Memorial, Korean Folk Village, Buddhist Temple and Palace. The days were filled with wonderful food and activities. The sobering reality of the visit was to the demilitarized zone, the joint security area, and then into North Korea with a heavy guard to visit the Third Tunnel dug by North Korea to infiltrate the South made the importance of our military quite obvious. They shopped in Insadong, visited Dr. Fish (where minnows nibble on your feet) saw a stage show similar to STOMP called Nanta (Rett performed) and a “naked” half marathon (boxers only, Rett ran). These sights made all the walking worth the visit. The lowest temperature was minus 9 degrees! And it snowed! Ellen said South Korea was amazingly clean and modern and the people were friendly and anxious to try their English. There were malls and aquariums eight stories underground and a subway system that was state-of-the-art.  Both had a good visit with Rett and his family and (it was) one to remember.

Alex Naccareto had two bucking bulls at the PBR in Sacramento last weekend. “Look Out” and “Gator” both bucked the riders off but “Gator” put on a show when they tried to get him out of the arena. Grandpa and Grandma Shearer got to see grandchildren Wyatt and Sterling (and parents Jeff and Lisa). Jeff is the replay judge for the PBR.

Hurry and heal that arm, Liam.
