What's Up in Stallion Springs?
March 27, 2021
CSD General Manager Vanessa Stevens and staff member Judy Quijada presented Ed Gordon with a plaque thanking him for his service to the community.
Ed was appointed to the Board of Directors in January 2015 and served on the Board until the expiration of his term ending December 17, 2020. During his term he rendered services and council in administration of the District.
The Board presented the plaque in appreciation of his services as a director, expertise and council, Board President and his volunteer efforts to the entire community.
The scholarship fundraiser is quickly approaching and we haven't received any donations yet. We are praying and hoping the community can help us just like they did last year when we raised $4,200 just from donations.
Since, due to COVID we are still unable to throw our huge shindig, last year we had six $1,000 scholarships we gave out. so far we have no money for any this year. We hope to raffle some items but we aren't doing so well this year. Please consider donating if you can. Our grads are working hard to get this scholarship.
The Golf Course has been sold. Vanessa will be meeting with the new owner during the coming month and more details will be forthcoming.
Parks and Recreations
The application for a grant from the Prop 68 Parks Program has been submitted. The grants will be awarded in late summer. If granted, we will receive funds needed to create a big beautiful park for all to enjoy.
We will continue to host open gyms with slotted times for families to enjoy safely.
