The Art Alliance of Idyllwild Board of Directors announced that Beth Severance, a long-time resident, is the organization’s new member of the board, taking the post of hospitality chair.

A Southern California native with a passion for community service, Beth’s business résumé includes both event planning as a business owner, as well as holding chair positions with many nonprofits both on and off the Hill.

Beth is enthusiastic about participating with AAI in achieving the goal of bringing the town together through art, art education, comradeship and enhancing Idyllwild’s standing as one of our country’s top art destinations …

Speaking last week at the Idyllwild Rotary Club was Kent Demuth, a Rotarian from the Temecula club.  Kent has been on several missions to Bangladesh and India to inoculate hundreds of thousands of children against the polio virus.

His talk was a moving presentation and reminds everyone that, thanks to Rotary, the world is now 99.9 percent polio free.
