Cash donations to purchase
items listed, or donation from the
following list:
It’s a “three-peat” for Cinnamon, resident black bear at the California Living
Museum! His prediction that the Seahawks would win Super Bowl XLVIII was
correct. For the past three years, KGET-TV, Channel 17 Sportscaster Mark Haas has
called on “Psychic Cinnamon” to predict the outcome of the Big Game. For the past
two years, Cinnamon chose the underdog only underscoring his credibility.
Delores Regedal
August, 1923—November, 2013
A Founding Member, Delores was actively involved with CALM since 1983.
Even though she and her husband Richard (who passed in 2012) moved to
Minnesota in 2004, she continued to faithfully support the zoo. Her dedication
to CALM will always be remembered.
Lillie Gamez George
September, 1929—February, 2014
Lillie Gamez George passed away in Bakersfield with
her family at her side. Lillie was a Founding Member of
CALM. Through her connection with the zoo, Mexicali
Restaurants, Inc., have always held
a Business Membership.
