When triple-digit temperatures register across Southern 
California and the County of Los Angeles Public issues a 
Heat Advisory for areas including the San Gabriel Valley it is 
important to remind residents of tips to stay cool and safe.

• Slow down, avoid strenuous activity. Do not try to do too 
much on a hot day.

• Wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing. 
Light colors will reflect heat and sunlight and help maintain 
normal body temperature.

• Protect your face with a wide-brimmed hat.

• Drink plenty of water regularly and often, even if you do 
not feel thirsty.

• Stay hydrated.

• Stay indoors as much as possible. If you do not have air 
conditioning, stay on your lowest floor, out of the sun or 

 go to a place where you can get relief from the heat, such

 as air conditioned, library, theaters and other community 

 facilities that may offer refuge during the warmest times 

 of the day.

• Electric fans do not cool the air, but they do help 

 evaporate perspiration, which cools your body.

• Cover windows that receive morning or afternoon sun

 with drapes, shades, awnings or louvers. Outdoor

 awnings or louvers can reduce the heat that enters a

 home by up to 80 percent.

• Check on family, friends and neighbors.

If you believe you, or anyone you are with, is experiencing a heat-
related medical emergency, promptly call 911, and if possible, 
move to a cooler place.

With a heat wave approaching this weekend and into next week, 
please be sure to always LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK! Never leave 
baby or pets alone in a car for any period of time. A great tip to help 
us remember is placing your purse or workbag in the back with baby 
or pets so you'll be sure to go to the back seat to retrieve it.



They are eighth-graders now, but they have 
already been to college! Ten local middle-school 
girls that attended Tech Trek Science/Math Camp on 
the Whittier College campus this past June will bring 
highlights of their week’s camp experiences to the 
Monday, September 14 meeting of their sponsors, 
the Arcadia Branch of the American Association of 
University Women (AAUW). By attending classes, 
doing hands-on experiments, taking field trips, 
and hearing from professionals, the young women 
learned that women do work in STEM careers—
the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and 

 Hearing from the girls is pleasure enough, 
but as a bonus, the audience will also hear from guest 
speaker Adriana L. Oliveres Romero, a doctoral 
candidate from UC-Irvine, whose career path in 
environmental sciences has led her to do research 
and experimentation on fungi in remote forests of 
Alaska. A dynamic, stimulating speaker, Adriana 
delighted the Arcadia Branch as guest speaker at 
its May luncheon meeting. Her fellowship at UC-
Irvine is partially funded by AAUW through its 
AAUW Funds project which supports women in 
research and advanced studies.

The Arcadia Branch AAUW meeting will take place 
in the Church of the Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall, 
400 West Duarte Rd., Arcadia (SW corner of Duarte 
Rd. and Holly Ave.). The meeting is open to the 
public at no charge, and ample parking is available 
in the church parking lot. Members and guests 
are cordially invited to come for socializing and 
refreshments at 6:30 p.m. and to meet the Tech Trek 
girls and their families. The program will follow at 
7:00 p.m.

 Membership in the American Association 
of University Women is open to women and men 
holding a university or college degree, as well as 
to those with an Associate of Arts degree or its 
equivalent. For more information, please call 
Tamara Kato at (626) 375-6756 or Patricia Dietrich 
at (626) 446-8437.


 “The Kindness of Strangers” feature encourages readers to share their 
stories. I can assure you, they will be uplifting especially in contrast 
to all the the challenges and issues we have to deal with daily. So, if you 
have something you would like to share, please submit it to: editor@ It doesn’t matter where you were or when it happened. 
Share your good expeiences in hope that it might bring a little joy and/or 
inspire someone.
