"That’s it! This place needs a face lift!” and that is how all began shared Jenifer. Jenifer Pitcher is well known in the city for all her involvement in different boards, particularly Keep Bakersfield Beautiful and, of course, Bakersfield North Rotary. Jenifer, working closely with the local Basque community, the city planning government agency, and local business has been pioneering a project to “make the old town Bakersfield more appealing.” The neighborhood extends for an area of two square miles east of Union Ave and south of E. Truxtun. The project will color this historical part of town with murals dedicated to the Basque and Italian communities, painted electrical boxes, new trash bins, and new light features. Eventually, a new pavement will replace the old dirty sidewalks and fresh trees will make this place more aesthetically appealing. “My desire is to spruce up the community by involving the community and making Bakersfield more beautiful!” concluded Jenifer. It’s admirable how determined our fellow Rotarian is: thank you Jenifer for your embodiment of service above self.
