Members of the Bluebirds German Band take a breather after performing at the Morningside Oktoberfest celebration. This band, originally from Germany, entertained residents with their selections of rousing tunes and fun-filled “toasting” songs! Lakeview Hall was festooned with fall leaves and pumpkins. Glass beer steins filled with peanuts were centered at each table. Residents not only enjoyed clapping, cheering, and toasting to the music, but were also treated to delicious stuffed pretzels and, of course, beer. Prost!
Enjoy this delicious Tostada Salad as an entrée when you want something lightly filling and delicious. Made with crisp lettuce, tomatoes, refried beans and grated cheddar cheese, the salad is served in a crisp tortilla shell and topped with sour cream, salsa and, if you like, a spattering of sliced avocados. Add a side of sweet potato fries or onion rings and a cool beverage to complete the meal.
Morningside Information Technology Fair
Organized by Residents’ Council Chair Bruce Pilkington, Morningside’s First Information Technology Fair was a HUGE success! Residents were able to browse different stations in Lakeview Hall which were manned by resident volunteers well-versed in various aspects of technology, such as the use of iPhones, iPads, computers and much more. Residents were able to enter one drawing to guess the “mystery machine” and another by filling out a survey as to what types of technology workshops they’d most want to attend. It was not only great fun, it was a wonderful event to bring residents together and to share “what’s happening” today in the world of technology.
Then gentlemen of Morningside had a recent opportunity to meet with members of the Titan Rover team from CSUF’s School of Science and Technology at a recent meeting of the Men’s Club. The students presented their entry in the University Rover Challenge, an international competition run by the Mars Society, which is directed at colleges world-wide to design and build the next generation of Mars rovers that will one day work alongside human explorers on the Red Planet. The students shared with the Men’s Club their dedication in working together to research, design, manufacture and test a Mars Exploration Rover.
