We did it! Another successful backpack packing event is in the books. Many thanks to our intrepid packers, alumni members Nora, Maxine, Carol, Tony, Cathy, Dixie, Barbara (all the way from Florida!), Jerry, Duane, Jim, Jan, and Gary. Special thanks to Nora and Gary, and their daughter, Anita at King’s Stationers, for ordering and delivering the supplies.
Nora is in the final stages of putting our calendar together and showed us preliminary artwork that is sure to make our calendar a best seller once completed. It features local Fallbrook merchants and organizations. Stay tuned for the new, 15 month, calendar available for purchase SOON!
The hard-working Pam Cain at Fallbrook High School’s College and Career Center received two thermal air pots donated by the Fallbrook Alumni Association.
