The mission of The Anderson Springs Community Alliance (ASCA) is to protect, preserve and restore the quality of life, property, natural resources, culture, and history that defines the community and surrounding area of Anderson Springs, California. Its mission statement was created in 2002 and remains just as valid today.
The new Board of Directors is comprised of full time and weekend residents of homes destroyed and still standing, and serves as the voice of the community at this historical juncture. The ASCA board is chaired by Voris Blumfield, a permanent, “still standing” resident of Anderson Springs. Voris has many years of experience working with the County, having at one time served as a county supervisor, and was a founding board member of the Anderson Springs Water District.
The Anderson Springs Community Alliance was founded in 2002 and meets once a month and all are invited to attend. The Alliance is a registered non-profit 501c3. Tax ID: 06-1661314

Donna Taylor’s mom, Beryleen, purchased a cabin in Anderson Springs in 1979 when Donna was in her early teens. Beryleen and her three kids became weekenders year-round and, whenever possible, spent weeks at a time there hanging out at the pool or at neighbor’s cabin making lifelong friends. Beryleen moved full-time to the cabin in the late 80s and bought two properties adjacent to her own and eventually sold one to Donna who had by then long been bringing her own family to the Springs, sharing it’s friendliness and open heart with a new generation. She is planning to rebuild her cabin and hopes that being on the board she can help others rebuild their cabins as well.
Jacquelyn Bartlett has been in Anderson Springs almost every weekend since she and her husband, Doug, bought their cabin in 2001. She was the “Social Director” at the recreation center and in that role planned the summer calendar of movies, BBQs, dances, and holiday events. She organized the community volunteers to produce these events. Jacquelyn could be found on the bocce court, or at her cabin creating stonework paths and walls. She spent many hours creating mosaic pieces that she donated to the recreation center volunteers. Jacquelyn had recently retired was living full time in Anderson Springs, waiting for her husband to join her next year. She is excited to rebuild their home and studios in Anderson Springs, to bring forth new life and art and fun and happiness to the community so close to her heart.
