Spring started very memorably at CAC with our gala Champions Dinner.  I hope you enjoy the video profiles of the three Champions (below).  Also in this issue you'll read the inspiring story of the Saleta family and their wonderful relationship with CAC.  Finally, we'll take you behind the scenes of our Energy program. And don't forget to make your Memorial Day Weekend a special one by attending the Chefs' Picnic in the Park at the Solvang Festival Theater on on May 27!

Community Action Champions Dinner

CAC honored Sylvia Ng, Patricia Stewart, and
Randy Weiss for their contributions to our community. The dinner and awards ceremony took place at the Buellton Marriott on March 27, 2012. See more photos here.

The Saleta Family


Teresa has served on the Head Start Policy Council, and, later worked for CAC in the South County regional office. Jose has served on the CAC Board. Their son Pablo attended CAC's Alvin Center in Santa Maria.  The Saleta family has a compelling story. Learn more about the Saletas.
