Lighthouse holds meeting on Adoption Ministry

Local author Vivian Chepourkoff Hayes has written and illustrated a book about places to visit around Ridgecrest in the form of a children’s book for ages four to eight. Timothy and Susan take unhappy Cousin Icky to visit the Trona Pinnacles, Randsburg, Lone Pine, and Death Valley.

After visiting these sites, they go to the Maturango Museum and China Lake Museum. The book ends with Cousin Icky saying, “I love Ridgecrest. I’m Home.”

Based on her experiences of living in Ridgecrest for 24 years, she says, “These are places I have gone to with my family.” These books are available through the Museums, Amason, and as e-Books at the Kindle Store. “Use the long middle name when looking me up,” says Vivian.
