April 3 Food Bank Volunteer Night

In March we bagged 8000 lbs of oranges for those locally who need a bit of assistance – in just 2 hours! Join us at the next Food Bank Volunteer night on Thursday April 3rd from 6 – 8 PM. Anyone over 7 years old can help! We meet the 1st Thursday of each month. Usually we just put food in boxes on an assembly line – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help! Email Sara Ohara at if you’re interested in joining us.

Horse Heaven Campouts

Memorial Day Weekend and Forth of July
Campouts at Horse Heaven by Mt Laguna

We have reserved the Horse Heaven group campsite for both the Memorial Day Weekend (Fri, May 23 – Mon, May 26) and the Forth of July weekend (Fri-July 4 – Sunday, July 6). So mark these dates on your calendar and look forward to a great time in the mountains. Flyers will be available about a month before each event that will give more information and a map to the campsite. Often families bring friends along. Also, for those who don’t like to camp, it is a quick drive (1.5 hrs max) from Solana Beach, so come for the day on Saturday and stick around for the community stew dinner and campfire. Those who haven’t had this camping experience should feel free to call or email Betsy Gilpin for more information (760-230-2515,
