We again met at the Sherwood Country Club, Thousand Oaks, CA., for a very festive Christmas Holiday Luncheon featuring our Beacon of Light Awardees, radio host, author, and attorney Larry Elder, Freedom Award, and entrepreneur, scientist Natasha Trenev, Humanitarian Award. District Attorney Gregory Totten stepped in as Master of Ceremonies. The annual Dove Release for Peace on the Terrace followed a very pleasant, joyous reception in the Conservatory when members were able to meet our awardees.

Larry Elder is one of the longest running radio hosts in the country with a daily national program from 6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M, Monday to Friday, heard locally on Salem Broadcasting KRLA 870 AM. The ‘Sage of South Central’ shines the bright light of reasoned analysis on many myths and hypocrisies apparent in our government. His thoughtful insights using logic, facts, common sense make him one of the most in demand radio personalities and cable news pundits in the country.

Natasha Trenev, known as the Mother of Probiotics, escaped from communism at 8 years old with her family, to the U. S. with very little money, lived in a $10.00 room, the father working at menial jobs was able to scrape and save to start a yogurt company. Natasha attended U.C.L.A., studied science, worked with her father, and after years of study and experimentation established with her husband Yordan, Natren, Inc., an international supplier of probiotic products based in Westlake Village, CA. She lectures around the globe to medical groups, general public, has authored many books and articles on healthy living and is creating with Yordan,s a legacy for healthy generations to come, certainly a humanitarian. Natalia Staneva, Executive Director of the New West Symphony, provided a beautiful musical interlude.

Dr. Gary Allen Dicky played his pipes leading all on to the terrace and then to the dining room where we toasted President Donald J. Trump. Our members and guests participated in our annual collection for the Teenage girls at Maryvale Residence.

NATIONAL PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

May 2016 BUSINESS WOMEN FOR TRUMP Noel Irwin Hentschel organized a special meeting of one hundred selected business women at the Anaheim Convention Center to meet candidate DONALD J. TRUMP. After going through many phases of security, we waited excitedly for his arrival. When he came into the meeting room with numerous secret service men behind him,with 100 women in attendance the room erupted in smiles and joyous greeting for him. He was gracious, gentlemanly and appeared much younger and handsome than his photos. after the meeting we were escorted to the Anaheim Arena where he held a rally. The audience was diverse, but many young people. He remained after his rousing talk a long time for autographs and talking with he people.
