The annual Christmas Dinner for hundreds of people is at 2626 Pacific St., in San Bernardino on Saturday, December 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
(San Bernardino, Calif.) The San Bernardino Salvation Army Corp (www.salvationarmyusa.org) hosts its annual Christmas Dinner for hundreds of people at its headquarters, 2626 Pacific St., in San Bernardino, CA 92346. This year, the Christmas dinner will be held on Saturday, December 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
“We share the joy and love of our God who sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to save us from sin. He taught use to love our neighbors as ourselves. We share this Christmas meal and meals every day to show those in need that God truly cares for all of his children,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Citadel Corp director.
Since 1887, the annual San Bernardino Salvation Army Christmas dinner has served thousands of families, mothers, children and men who do not have the means to provide themselves a Christmas dinner. Some just come to enjoy fellowship with others.
People come from Bloomington, Colton, Grand Terrace, Highland, Rialto, and San Bernardino for this annual Christmas celebratory meal. The dinner often serves more than 300 people.
“This year, guests will enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, containing potatoes, gravy, stuffing, vegetables, pie and other food received from donations,” said Lt. Cathie McCully.
“Every year, volunteers come together to provide the food preparation and service of Christmas meals to dinner guests,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Commander of The Salvation Army San Bernardino Corp. “Our volunteers and staff really do an outstanding job, to make a difference for those who are less fortunate during the holiday season.”
Many of the services provided by the Salvation Army, such as this annual Community Christmas dinner, are made possible through in-kind donations and money raised through the Red Kettle Bell Ringer campaign. “It’s one of ministries your donations serve,” said Major Henderson.
Each Christmas, Inland Empire Salvation Army Corps in eight corps locations combine to serve about 1,800 people holiday meals.
The hungry families are joined by hundreds of volunteers who help prepare the food and serve meals to the families. Along with asking volunteers to help serve food, the Salvation Army is encouraging people to donate turkeys or hams, side dishes and other food by calling (909) 888-1336.
“The San Bernardino Corps also needs food every day for those at our Hospitality House living shelter,” said Lt. Cathie McCully. Up to 100 family members stay in its transitional and emergency family shelters.

- This January 2012 ad uses the campaign theme for the Magnolia at Highland – “Affordable Luxury”. We also target seniors by saying, “For ages 62 and better”. The campaign was very successful. The senior apartments have 100+ person waiting list.
This is where your research bears fruit. Take the information obtained through your research that tells you who your customer is, what they like, and what they like about your products and services to develop a campaign theme to reach your target market.
This theme must translate well into print, radio, television, your website, billboards, Email, social networks, and direct mail to grab the target’s attention and leave the right impression. If you need help to develop your ads use: and ad agency, freelance artists, university students or talk to your newspaper or radio representative.
You can also call Dameron Communications to help you develop your plan.
We know the goal is to increase sales and profit:
- But of what product ? You want to include all of them but really pick one.
- Of what service? Again I know, you want to include all of them, but again pick one.
- Where is it? Where are your locations or do you come to me?
- When do customers want to buy your stuff? — Winter, spring, summer or fall?
Start by reviewing your sales and promote your most popular product or the thing you are known for.
80 percent of your business comes from 20 percent of your customers. Define who the 20 percent are, what they want and create your campaign to go after more people like them!
For Argosy University they are highly recognized for their Postgraduate degrees in Psychology, Education and Business, that’s their 20 percent. So our goal was to increase enrollment in those programs. They also have bachelors degree completion programs and other offerings.
Slogans – “Campaigns that work!” That’s the Dameron Communications slogan
How do you start? Try creating a quick five-second description of what you do that makes your customer feel better good about buying your product. Then massage it into a slogan.
Here are some examples.
- For SpeakerCraft we created the slogan “The Art of Sound”. They sell speakers and high-end stereo equipment. Not just things to make music, but things to make music sound exceptionally great.
- For the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health AIDS program the slogan was “Know your Status”. We show multiethnic real people and ask the question: “Are you HIV Positive of Negative?”
- Are you HIV Positive of Negative? Do you know? You should know. Take control. Get checked for free at the San Bernardino County Health Department.
- For The Magnolia at Highland the slogan is “Affordable Luxury”. This project is a low income senior citizen complex, however it is designed and built like a luxury resort. So we sold it that way. We used the images reserved for luxury spas and luxury resorts, people in the pool, the cabañas and the beautiful entry. Instead of 62 and older we came up with 62 and Better.
- The Magnolia at Highland Senior Citizen Apartments’ Grand Opening invitation created for Western Seniors Housing. It clearly shows the luxury features available in the Senior Apartments.
- For Argosy University it’s “Education that Works.” This slogan has multiple meanings. Not only does the education help you be a better person, but the reason many people get a post-graduate degree is to get a better job and make more money, so having a degree from Argosy helps to get you more work. The other issue with Universities new to the area is the question of trust. We included the line “quality Education for over 30 years in Psychology, Education and Business” to demonstrate that Argosy was not a new University, just new to the area. This line is to solidify the brand and increase trust. The campaign increase enrollment 450 percent and made the campus the fastest growing start up the history of 22 campus system.
- Yes, it does sound like our slogan. Argosy abandoned it and so we picked it up. Waste not, want not.
- “Education That Works” was the slogan we created for Argosy University. This is the billboard we created, we also created newspaper ads, plus magazine and radio commercials.
Good luck, and remember the target for your slogan is your customers, not you!
To Be Effective In Advertising, Plan And Be Consistent.

Lacey Kendall new AAF president
(San Bernardino, CA) Lacey Kendall, a radio consultant and broadcast advisor at Cal State San Bernardino has been named president of the Inland Empire Chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF).
Kendall served as vice president of the AAF last year where she played a key role in the annual ADDY awards, a gala that recognizes excellence in advertising throughout the Inland Empire. She also helped organize monthly educational programs and fundraising events for the local chapter.
“I’m so excited to serve as president of the AAF for this coming year. This chapter has a long history of service to the advertising community in the Inland Empire and I am looking forward to continuing that tradition.”
Her goals for the coming year are, “To increase membership, host an incredible ADDY award competition and strengthen relationships with local colleges and universities who offer advertising as an academic major,” says Kendall.
“We also believe that advertising students should be better connected to the professional organization that represents their industry. This year we’re going to work to improve those relationships with this AAF chapter and increase the academic scholarships we already offer to deserving advertising students.”
Kendall, 52, of North Rialto became interested in radio broadcasting at San Bernardino Valley College in 1979 where she hosted ‘Bluegrass Alive!’ Since then she has worked as a producer, manager and on-air host for radio stations in Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties.
Hired to cast voices for worldwide radio and TV commercials at Voice Over LA Studios in Hollywood, she worked on the George H.W. Bush presidential campaign and with clients such as Nike, Touchstone Pictures, Men’s Health Magazine and McDonalds.
In 1994 she started 909Creative, an Inland Empire commercial production company. She has also taught radio broadcasting at San Bernardino Valley College and at the University of LaVerne. And in 2003 she worked with American radio news legend Daren Lane to build KCAA/NBC News Radio where she served as operations manager.
In 2007 Kendall was hired as the broadcast consultant at Cal State San Bernardino, where today she advises over 140 students who are studying broadcasting, marketing, advertising and station management. Her duties include managing Coyote Radio, the Cal State radio station, and she produces My Awesome Empire, a radio show about the Inland Empire and the Isla Earth Radio Series, broadcast over 300 stations in the U.S. and heard by over seven million weekly listeners. Additionally she continues to host a Saturday show on 96.7 KCAL Rocks where she first worked 33 years ago.
Kendall was born in Lakewood, Ca. and grew up in Rialto. She earned a B.A. in radio broadcasting from the University of La Verne and a M.A in Communications from Cal State San Bernardino.
“The Community Settlement Association is increasing attendance in their DUI program by asking for more people to attend. Advertising works when it’s done right,” says Carl Dameron.
(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) With 24 months of increased employment and retail sales it is quite clear we are in an economic recovery. “But tough economic times convinced too many companies stop advertising their business, or they cut their public relations budget because its easier than cutting people,” says Carl M. Dameron, founder and Creative Director of Dameron Communications, (DameronCommunications.com) a leading public relations and advertising agency serving California.
“The problem is many companies have been so lean for so long they have forgotten they must increase their ad budget to get more customers. They are still in survival mode and afraid to advertise. Waiting could very well be the wrong thing to do now,” said Dameron.
A free brochure from Dameron Communications, Effective Advertising & Public Relations, outlines a step-by-step program to effectively reach a company’s target market, create a positive image of the business and entice their target market to use their products and services.
According to Dameron the solution to increasing business in a changing economy is to change your advertising strategy. “The recession is ending and pent up demand is driving increased traffic and sales at many businesses. Buyers are redefining their purchases based on what they need, not just want.
Dameron offers more solutions to energize or create and implement an effective advertising and public relations strategy.
The program consists of four major components: research, ad development, media planning and placement and finally ad monitoring for effectiveness. While a successful campaign fulfills all four components, a combination of effective planning and consistency is also required to be effective.
Additionally, Dameron’s guide gives information on developing effective public relations, government relations and community relations strategies.
Dameron goes one step further. “If your business needs help sorting out your media options or creating a new message, we will provide you a free one-hour consultation on your advertising, public relation plan.”
