A Huge Scripps Ranch Party

Mark your calendar for the annual 4th of July Parade and Festivities! Why not join the parade?! The entry form on page 7 tells you how. Are there any blocks or cul-de-sacs ready to create a neighborhood float, as Loire Valley, Leafwood, and others have done? We hope so!

Lifesaving Devices in Schools

The Scripps Ranch community owes huge thanks to Jennifer and Sean Blake and Jennifer's mother, Karen McElliott. In memory of longtime Scripps Ranch resident Ron McElliott, they created Project Heart Beat and have enabled, with some help from the SRCA, our community to be the first to place lifesaving AEDs in every one of our Scripps Ranch public schools. Read the story on page 47 to learn about how tragedy spawned a lifelong community asset.

We Need You!

The SRCA is looking for residents to represent their districts on the SRCA Executive Board. If you live in the following areas, please consider becoming a district representative.

4th of July Parade

Don't miss the 38th annual 4th of July Parade and Festivities sponsored by the Scripps Ranch Civic Association. This year's theme is "Scripps Ranch Rocks." Everyone will have a rockin' good time!

Entries vary from local businesses, youth or neighborhood groups, car clubs, schools, and more. Get your friends together and create a float! The entry form is on page 7. The entry deadline is Friday, June 20. We are looking for more bands or musical groups for the parade.

The SRCA provides convertibles for dignitaries to ride in during the parade. If you can supply a convertible, please contact Jay Wurtzler at 578-1602.

More fun comes after the parade when the SRCA hosts festivities in Hoyt Park. We will have free ice cream from our Scripps Ranch Baskin and Robbins, sponsored by Ozzie and Tanya and Mission Federal Credit Union. There will be many activities for the kids. New this year will be Rob the DJ, who will have you rockin'. Also new will be a food booth offering hot dogs and shaved ice for a reasonable price.

The Old Pros will have their sponsors of local restaurants offering food items for sale, along with free water, fruit, and soda. There will be a beer garden for adults 21 years and older.

Join the fun as "Scripps Ranch Rocks." It takes many volunteers to make this a great event. If you can help with the planning or on the day of the event, call Bill Crooks at 653-3753.

Community Fair Success!

Our goal is to create an event that is a gift to the community from the SRCA. With the help of our wonderful committee--Bill Crooks, Jany Staley, Jan Kane, Mary Drummond, Nemie Capacia, and Bob Dingeman--I think we did it again. Thanks also to all the volunteers who helped with parking and traffic control.

The SRCA would like to personally thank Rachel Votel and the Symphony in the Park Committee for their concert with The Mar Dels, following the Community Fair. A big thank you also goes to the fantastic Bayou Brothers for keeping the Community Fair rockin' all day long.

Please help us thank the business owners that sponsored our event by supporting their businesses.
