Sikh wedding in Vancouver
Pictured from left: Sam, Anmol, Gulsheen, and Lakhwinder Singh, and seated, Sam’s mother, Kuldip Kaur, the groom Lovedeep Singh, and nephew Gurveer.

Kenwood Market owners Sam and Lakhwinder Singh took a break recently and went to Vancouver for a family wedding - a big family wedding! Sam, Lakhwinder, and their children Anmol and Gulsheen joined 600 other relatives and friends for the marriage of Sam's nephew Lovedeep Singh to Jasmin Kang of Calgary. The March 23 traditional Sikh ceremony, with everyone in full cultural attire, was a spectacular and moving sight that has hardly changed since the days of the Raj.

Lakhwinder says they took a Kenwood Press with them but forgot to take it out for pictures - I can't tell you how many times people have said that!
Kyle Bunte

Kyle Bunte finished up at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo last month, and his parents Kathleen and Mark Bunte and sister Amanda went down there to celebrate, even though there is no graduation ceremony in March. They just made their own ceremony, complete with cap and gown! Kyle has a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Earth Science, Geology, and a Minor in GIS (Geographic Information Systems).

An avid hiker, Kyle is taking the spring and summer to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. He begins this month at the Mexican border and hopes to get up to Canada by late summer. He will be in touch with updates, that is if he can get through all the Sierra snow that is in his way. Congratulations, Kyle, and have fun out there!

We are indeed at that time of year when students graduate from high school, college, and beyond. Please send us your graduation news, including future plans if you know them. Pictures, too, and the KP doesn't have to be in them!

And speaking of students, both Gemma Guerrazzi and Jackson Lasseter made the Dean's List at Emerson College in Boston. Well done!

The Human Race is coming up on May 6, and there are, of course, many worthy groups raising funds through this event, but for sheer cuteness, it's hard to beat mountain lion cubs and Ayla Martins' appeal for her dad's mountain lion tracking project. Check out Ayla is talking, as only a four-year-old can, about how her dad, Dr. Quinton Martins, takes road-kill deer, puts them in cages, and traps and collars mountain lions. To find out more about this Audubon Canyon Ranch project, go to page 7 of this issue.

We were saddened to hear about the death of Brandon Barmore, the Sonoma Valley High School senior who died last month while swimming in Nicaragua. He was a truly wonderful young man with so much ahead of him. Brandon's mother Margee Barmore works at Kenwood School in the Kindergarten and first grade, and Brandon attended Kenwood School. To Margee, Phil, Ryan and Emily, we send our sincerest condolences.

That's all I have room for this issue. Please send in your news and photos for Village Chat. It's easy to do - just email or call 833-5155. - AQP
