Rancho Bernardo Gives Back

Rancho Bernardo organizations have been busy giving back to the community this summer. The Rancho Bernardo Recreation Advisory Board, formerly known as the Rancho Bernardo Recreation Council, recently invested nearly $40,000 in improvements for Rancho Bernardo Community Park.

The board purchased and installed new wind screens and yellow padding for all fields with backboards, as well as replacing the rusty Knaack storage boxes. The board set aside $2,500 for additional security cameras. A new portable stage and stage lighting equipment will be used for theater productions, dance performances, and other events held at the park.

The advisory board meets the third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Rancho Bernardo-Glassman Recreation Center. Call 858-538-8129 to confirm whether there will be a meeting that month.

Rancho Bernardo residents also made an impact elsewhere in San Diego County. Rancho Bernardo Community Council member Eileen Kaufman spearheaded a sporting equipment drive, collecting over 100 new and gently used balls, bats, cleats, gloves, and other goods. The council donated the equipment to Mountain View Recreation Center and Southcrest Recreation Center.

“The idea was to allow less fortunate areas to enjoy the items so that children can participate in various sports,” said Council President Robin Kaufman.
