Letter From The President
The Joshua Tree Chamber of Commerce sends a special ‘Thank You’ to Joshua Tree Health Foods. For almost a year now, Joshua Tree Health Foods has been paying for the maintenance of Turtle Island on behalf of the entire community. Please join us in thanking them for their part in keeping this entry to Joshua Tree beautiful. Turtle Island is the strip of land that borders the South side of Hwy 62 between Sunburst and Hillview Rd. In 2012 the Joshua Tree Chamber re-landscaped the island with a grant from San Bernardino County and had maintained it for almost two years.
Each month we will choose and feature a new Member of the Month in the newsletters for that month. To find out how to be included in the drawing, send an email to email@example.com

Copper Mountain College Foundation is proud to announce Kamaljot Singh of Twentynine Palms as the 2015 Greenleaf Scholarship winner.
Kamaljot Singh is a senior at Twentynine Palms High School and is no stranger to Copper Mountain College because he has taken classes here since the beginning of his freshman year in high school.

Kamaljot Singh was chosen out of a very competitive field of applicants to receive this year’s Greenleaf Scholarship. The scholarship will pay his tuition, books and fees plus living expenses while he is a student at Copper Mountain College, in addition to paying those same expenses while he completes a baccalaureate degree at a four year institution.
The Foundation will host a Greenleaf Award Ceremony on April 9, 2105 at 5:30 pm in the Front Foyer of the Bell Center to honor Kamaljot Singh and recognize the four other finalists, Kylie Howell, Marie Linton, Elizabeth Schmelling and Vanessa Valle with a $500 scholarship.

Roy Greenleaf Jr., the scholarship is awarded each year to a promising student that is interested in learning, success oriented, has performed successfully in school and shows a desire to return to the Morongo Basin upon completion of his education. Kamaljot Singh plans on attaining a degree in Electrical Engineering and states, “having this career, I will be able to fulfill my life and the lives of others by creating electrical equipment that aids individuals medically and mentally.”

One Spirit Medicine: Ancient Ways to Ultimate Wellness
One Spirit Medicine: Ancient Ways to Ultimate Wellness by Dr. Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.
I’m excited for the release next month of “One Spirit Medicine,” by my friend and colleague Dr. Alberto Villoldo. In this ground-breaking new book, Dr. Villoldo bridges cutting edge neuroscience and the ancient wisdom of the indigenous traditions he has studied for more than three decades to push the reset button on ultimate health and wellness in the 21st century. Using the principles and practices that Dr. Villoldo shares in One Spirit Medicine, you can feel better, clear your mind and heal your brain, and effectively grow a new body – one that mends rapidly, ages gracefully, and keeps you connected to Spirit, to the earth, and to a renewed sense of purpose in your life.
