The Hidden Meadows Community Foundation (HMCF) Board is looking forward to April, a month filled with events. They hope to have a great turnout at the Town Hall meeting and Sellers’ Faire on April 8, the Easter Egg Hunt on April 15, and the Artisan Guild Arts and Crafts Show and Sale on April 22 and 23. Look for details of each event in this edition of the paper.
The inaugural fundraising campaign has begun. The Hidden Meadows Community Foundation heard the community’s hopes and dreams at three town hall meetings and wants to put our dreams into action. All it takes is time and money! With your tax-deductible donation, we look forward to beautifying the medians, providing scholarships to high school seniors who reside in Hidden Meadows, establish an ongoing Neighbors Helping Neighbors program, and continue the memorable community events and explore options for a park/playground. The town hall meeting on April 8 will offer an opportunity to hear more specifically from each chairperson. Come join us!
At the March 6 HMCF meeting, Richard Esparza updated the Board about the Wilderness Park and the recent brush clearing by CAL FIRE crews. He reminded us that the money everyone pays to the state for fire suppression was used for the clearing of the park–money well spent to make the community safer. He was presented with a certificate of appreciation for volunteering to serve as the “keeper of the canyon” since the Foundation obtained the park from Welk Resorts in 2001.
