LOOKING FOR GARDEN VOLUNTEERS
Our TBE Central Avenue low water use landscape needs some 'TLC' to improve its looks. These are refinements beyond what our gardener does. Eric Lesser, Director of Facilities Management, is seeking volunteers who might be interested to perform simple maintenance tasks like pruning old flower stalks, cleaning up certain plants, doing some weeding and small palm removal, and transplanting Aloe stems. All activities will be under his supervision and done either on an occasional basis as a small group on a Friday or Sunday morning or as an individual's time permits. If interested to get on the list to join the 'TBE Central Landscape Corps', please email Hannah in the office at office@tberiv.org. Thank you!
COVID UPDATES

Vaccinated Californians now have a new way to show they are inoculated against the coronavirus  without carrying around a paper card. This new digital tool pulls information from California's immunization registry from providers across the state. To access this tool go to myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov.

The tool will also include a QR code that you can screenshot and eventually use to show to businesses, sports venues and others, which will soon be able to scan the code to verify that you are vaccinated. That part of the system is still in the works.

Everyone 12 and older is now eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations. Get additional information on vaccine eligibility, transportation options and vaccine sites in Riverside County here.  Make an appointment here.

If you need help with scheduling an appointment, call the CA COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-422-4255 (M-F 8AM-8PM, Sa-Su 8AM-5PM) for assistance.

Riverside County Registrar of Voters is recruiting for approximately 900 temporary positions to assist with the 9/14/2021 Governor Recall Election. Interested candidates can apply online here or contact TAP at hrtapindio@rivco.org or (951) 955-3500.
RABBI ZIMMERMAN NEW OFFERINGS
