Southwest Chula Vista Civic Association Meeting

The Southwest Chula Vista Civic Association will meet on Monday, September 24, 2007 at 6:45 PM at the MAAC Charter School, 1385 Third Ave. (between Palomar and Quintard). Councilman Rudy Ramirez will speak about his first 8 months in office and the convention he went to on revitalizing cities. Assistant City Manager Scott Tolloch and Nancy Lytle will explain the process to be involved in the city’s planning for the future of southwest Chula Vista.

The city has a history of ignoring the residents of the southwest and even as they say it will be a new way of dealing with residents they are ignoring community input on their most recent project. Come express your opinions and make a commitment to defend your neighborhood. Redevelopment will affect all residents-renters, mobile home park residents, small businesses, as well as single family homeowners. For more information call 425-5771 or see

Senior Nutrition Program Fund Raiser

We would like to inform you of our first-annual fund raiser to keep our Senior Nutrition Program operating. We have had our funding drastically cut (we are funded by Aging & Independence Services) for the past 10 years and need to bring in revenue so we won’t have to close any of our sites and cease operations to our senior clients, whom are very economically disadvantaged. We serve a hot daily meal 5 days a week to the very poor seniors in the city of San Diego, at 3 sites and deliver a meal to the handicapped home-bound. Our sites include our home-site at St Jude’s in Southcrest-Shelltown, and our satellite sites in Barrio Logan-Sherman, at Our Lady of Angel’s Church and at George Steven’s Senior Center in O’Farrell.  St Jude’s Senior Nutrition Fundraiser Dance is scheduled for Saturday Sept. 22nd, 2007. 

Dinner will be served from 2pm to 4pm with music provided by Sammy Ybarra

From 6pm to 8pm- we will be entertained by Francisco “Luki” Muñoz and various artistas del Grupo Fiesta Mexicana, followed by DJ- Jesse Lopez untill 10pm.

Tickets are 2 for $25.00 or 1 for $15.00 at St Jude Community Center, 3751 Boston Ave, San Diego, Ca. 92113.

For more information call Sylvia Moran at 264-4771.
