CALIFORNIA METHODIST CHURCH

 

The California United Methodist Church will be celebrating its’ 180th year in the area in 2020. Methodists have been noted since their inception as being people of Grace. (Grace being undeserved forgiveness and love of God) Parishioners both receive from God and off grace to neighbors. Sunday morning they offer Sunday School classes for pre-school thru adults at 9:00-9:45 am. At 10-11 am is worship, which blends traditional and contemporary into one service. Dress is typically casual to more formal on special occasions. Some other programs include 7th-12th grade youth group on the first and fourth Wednesday of the month. A new Kids For Christ has started this year. On the first and third Tuesday of the month from 3:10-4:45 pm they host K-6th graders to come learn more about God in a vacation Bible school atmosphere. They also support various mission projects throughout the year and fund raisers include the turkey dinner in November and a huge cookie sale in December. The California United Methodist Church is located at 201 S. Oak St. Pastor, Eugene Moeller, can be reached by calling the church office at 573-796-2792. The Chamber is proud to have the California United Methodist Church as a member!

CALIFORNIA VETERINARY CLINIC

 

Growing up on a dairy and crop farm south of Jefferson City, Roger Borgmeyer,with a BS degree in Agriculture and a minor in Chemistry from Lincoln University, and a desire to help farmers , thought becoming a veterinarian seemed like a good fit. While at UMC College of Veterinary Medicine, Roger visited with an upper class mate (Vickie Scheidt) about his desire to practice in Mid-Missouri. She shared that her hometown, California, MO, might be a good location. After checking it out and deciding the size and location matched Peggy and Roger's desire to remain close to their roots, all that was left was to just do it. The California Veterinary Clinic (CVC) was opened July 5,1979. The first clinic was opened in an old gas station where State Farm Ins. is currently located. In 1982 the current clinic building was built on Hwy 87 North. Dr. Borgmeyer was a solo practitioner until 1982 when a second veterinarian was added. Dr. Mark Oerly joined the practice in 1988. Dr. Kaitlyn Mouse joined as the third veterinarian in the practice in 2019. The CVC treats cats, dogs, cattle, sheep, goats, and horses. With Dr. Mouses's addition now CVC also treats "pocket pets". Also available are large animal haul in facilities for cattle, horses or other farm animal treatments. CVC also will treat animals on the farm. The latest addition for diagnosis and treatment is laser therapy and digital radiographs. The clinic has a large dispensing area for large and small animal products and vaccines. With 3 veterinarians and 7 veterinary assistants the CVC has been serving the area for over 40 years. Congratulations on your 40th Anniversary in July 2019! California Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to have California Veterinary Clinic as a member for many years!


CAL’S THRIFTWAY

 

Being a part of and serving the community has been something important for Calvin “Cal” Gerhart since he grew up just north of the Moniteau County Court House. Gerlach started working at the grocery store in high school and has been there ever since. He purchased the store, now “Cal’s Thriftway” around 1975. It is presently managed by Troy Schmidt. Calvin also owned several other businesses over the years, in an effort to make California a town that could better serve the community. It was a challenge when Highway 50 bypassed the town, but the affect on business was not as great as it could have been. The local community continues to support his business and he is grateful for their commitment. Calvin does not spend much time at the store these days, but he is still involved in the business on a daily basis. He continues to provide employment for young people in the community and he has a good reason. He remembers as a kid in school that he did not have a lot of spending money. He thought he would get a job so he could have some and that is what he did. He went to work and thought young men and women in school were experiencing the same thing he was, so he made it a tradition to give them the same opportunity he was. He is still employing high school students to this day. He believes that if we give them a job and help them have a little extra to spend, it prepares them better and helps down the road. They are an asset to his business. His customers are responsible for making it possible for his business to be here. In an article that appeared in The California Democrat a few years ago Calvin said “You cannot do anything without the people. You do not do it yourself, it takes people to do it and we have a great community. I have tried to keep making California better.” Cal’s includes a pharmacy (Hometown Pharmacy), a deli near the meat department, they smoke meats to sell daily, and continue to provide groceries for families at a reasonable price. The California Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to have had Cal’s Thriftway as a long standing member! They were honored as the Business of the Year in 2005! Thank you, Calvin Gerlach, for all you have done to make this community a better place to live and work!
