President’s Report

Recognition Night

The December meeting of the SRCA is one where we honor those individuals who help keep Scripps Ranch a great place to live and raise a family. There are many of our residents who go the extra mile to help our community, and we can never hope to thank each and every one. However, we do attempt to recognize as many as we can.

Our goal is to try and find those "unsung" heroes of Scripps Ranch, while still not forgetting those whom we have already honored. Please come and join us on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 7 pm at the Scripps Ranch Library. Recognition Night Chair Dorothy Mildice always puts together an evening to remember.

Important Meetings in Scripps Ranch

On Tuesday, Dec. 17, there will be two important informational meetings in Scripps Ranch; both will be at the Scripps Ranch Library.

The first meeting will be an SRCA Schools Committee meeting to discuss enrollment and school issues facing Scripps Ranch in the near future. One of the major concerns is overcrowding at Marshall Middle School. Options on how to deal with that will be discussed. This meeting will be at 6 pm.

The second meeting will be to discuss the closure of the Miramar Dam. This meeting will be from 7 to 9 pm. For more information, please see the articles in the News section on page 13.

`Tis the Season

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The SCRA hosts its Holiday Tree Lighting on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 4:30 pm in Jerabek Park. Bring an unwrapped toy for the USMC Toys for Tots program. It’s a great way to kick off the season, and Santa even makes an appearance.

The SRCA wishes everyone a peaceful and happy holiday season and urges everyone to drive carefully, especially in Scripps Ranch.

New Year’s Resolution

I would urge all Scripps Ranch residents to make joining the SRCA one of their New Year’s resolutions. The cost of membership is very reasonable, plus most of the funds collected are redistributed throughout the community.

Information on how to join can be found on the SRCA website at [www.scrippsranch.org]. Also, there will be more information in the January issue of the SRCA Newsletter. So, please take a moment to remember Scripps Ranch and help us keep it the great place to live that it is.
