Community Club Leaders Message:
hope that you are all nice and dry this weekend during this lull between storms!
events will soon start ramping up! The next event on our calendar is
Presentation Day on February 25th at the Jamul Community Church. This is an
event appropriate for all ages. Please consider participating or at least coming
to support your fellow club members. If you have questions, please reach out to
Kelli or Wendy or Nira, our Oratory Project leader. Details on this event will
soon follow in an e-mail.
V (5) Field Day is scheduled for March 4th. This event is typically held in
Lakeside and takes place in the morning. This is great practice for all of our
members enrolled in animal projects. It is a low-pressure environment for our
members to practice. As we get information, we will forward it to you.
and Design Day is scheduled for March 11th. This is another fun day with
divisions appropriate for all members. The entry packet will be available soon
with entry deadline at the end of February.
Eastern San Diego County Junior Fair BBQ and Auction are March 19th. Our club
typically sponsors a bake sale. Please consider baking and/or selling baked
goods. We are also expected to donate a basket to the auction. Because we
have items left over from our last basket, a coffee and tea theme, we will
collect similar items. Please consider bringing something appropriate for the
basket to our next two meetings.
next unit meeting will provide information on all of these events.

safe. We’ve been really busy trying to keep up with all the damage from
the storms. Please remember to read the emails from the club and the

This is the best and most exciting time of the year and I would hate for

These photos include those taken at Bates Nut Farm, Presentation Day,
Eastern San Diego County Fair, and San Diego Fair. One of the files was a

website, and the club Web Calendar was updated with the latest information.
We are adding prior year’s Acornicle Newsletters to the Acornicle
