Community Effort is Making Alpine Boulevard GREENER!

December 5, 2018 – By the alpine Chamber of Commerce

Twelve new native drought-tolerant plants, including two oak trees, are officially growing along Alpine Boulevard!

About 15 volunteers participated in the preparation, digging and watering on Dec. 1 to replace greenery outside The Alpine Sun newspaper at 2144 Alpine Blvd. and the nearby Alpine Woman’s Club headquarters at 2156 Alpine Blvd. As curious passersby turned to watch and business people came out to praise the beautification effort, five plants and one tree were placed at each location.

“We had a fantastic turnout,” said Jon Green, Back Country Land Trust (BCLT) program and outreach director. “We got a lot of kudos.” The Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce, BCLT and the Certified Community Wildlife Habitat organized the effort to replant the boulevard after construction damage.

A Lush Handmade Cosmetics grant to the land trust has provided 500 free plants for participating businesses and property owners. Watering arrangements can be made for the first year.   Counting two plants placed unofficially in November outside Alpine Motorsports & Equipment Repair at 2435 Alpine Blvd., 14 new plants are growing so far. More are due in December and January.

During the latest planting Green provided free seminars about native planting techniques, plant selection, watering needs, mulch and erosion control. “It was amazing,” said Jennifer Tschida, The Alpine Sun’s associate publisher and Alpine’s 2018 Honorary Mayor. “Jon was super organized, ready to go.”

Tschida, who is expecting a baby soon, said she was touched by the tree selection. Green said he chose a 2-foot-tall tree for the Alpine Woman’s Club and for the newspaper “a little baby oak so it will grow up with her son.” “Fifty years from now my son will be driving on Alpine Boulevard with his family, pointing and saying ‘That’s my tree,’” Tschida said.

For more information, to be a sponsor or to volunteer to water plants, call the Chamber at (619) 445-2722 or e-mail backcountrylandtrust@gmail.com; lorib@alpinechamber.com or carletteanderson@aol.com.

Donations Needed for the “Emergency Food Pantry” at the Alpine Community Center

The Alpine Community Center has been an “Emergency Food Pantry” for the Alpine community for the past 6 years. Recently we noticed a marked increase in requests for assistance and we depend solely on donations to stock this Pantry. Until now the major donor to this cause has been Alpine’s Christ the King Episcopal Church. We now require additional donations to keep up with the need.

The type of foods we are able to store and distribute are nonperishable items such as canned tuna, chicken, vegetables, chili, peanut butter, crackers, beans, rice, pasta, etc. We also need pet food and personal hygiene products. Please check expiration dates before donating items.

Donations can be delivered to the Alpine Community Center on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm and on Fridays between the hours of 9 am and 1 pm. We also accept monetary donations which will be used to purchase food items.

Thank you,

Last year over 23 dog houses were donated and distributed to dogs in need in our local mountains!

dog-in-doghouse-donation-drive

It’s that time again…cold and snowy in Boulevard, 30 miles east of Alpine in the mountains.  There are still many dogs that need dog houses and blankets to help them keep comfortable during these storms and even in the summer, to protect them from the heat.  If you have a dog house or blankets to donate, I will come and pick them up from you and distribute them as needed up here.  This is the 6th year I’ve done this.  You are helping so many dogs with your generous donations of houses and blankets.

Please call or text me at: (619) 964-1181 or e-mail me at Pam.Lawless@GCCCD.edu.  Thank you for your compassion for the animals. – Pam Lawless

“Live Your Dream” $1500 Cash Award for LOCAL WOMEN WAGE EARNERS – Apply TODAY!

The SIA Live Your Dream $1500 Cash Award application deadline is less than one month away. We would love to give a few local women a chance for a new beginning!

live your dream

The Live Your Dream Award is Soroptimist International of Alpine’s major program. The award provides women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families with the financial resources to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. The award can be used for tuition, books, childcare, carfare or any other education-related expense.

live your dream photoWhile the $1500 cash award is incredibly helpful, Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award recipients say that confidence and support they receive is equally meaningful.

As a global organization that works to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment, Soroptimist believes in helping women to live their dreams by providing them with the resources they need to change their lives.

We also believe that when you help a woman, you also help her family, the community, and the world. Despite the enormous progress that women have made, they still suffer disproportionately from poverty, illiteracy, violence and discrimination. As women, we feel uniquely qualified to reach out to women the world over.

Maybe you know a woman who might be deserving of a Live Your Dream Award. Or maybe you work for an agency or a college whose constituents would be interested in this program.

I urge you to contact us or to send these women our way. Contact Linda Evans , Alpine Soroptimist Live Your Dream Chair,  levans@cox.net,  for an applications or more information go to sialpine.orgApplications are due by November 15th, 2018.

 

Monetary & Goodie Bag Donations Sought for Home Delivered Thanksgiving Meals for Seniors

 

Dear Alpine Community Center Members,

The Alpine Community Center has been serving Thanksgiving meals to local seniors for 21 years! In the past we have had financial support from Aging and Independence Services; that help no longer exists. The purpose of this letter is to ask our community for assistance to feed those in need right here in Alpine.

We have a team of volunteers who assemble the meals and deliver them to the homes of seniors. The meal consists of: turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, green bean casserole, fruit salad, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. We also put together “goodie” bags which contain tokens from our local Alpine businesses.

Please help us with a donation to support his program! We can use monetary donations, and/or things to go in our goodie bags. Your donation is tax deductible and we will provide you with a tax receipt. The senior citizens of Alpine will benefit greatly and will be very appreciative.

Fore more info please contact Cindi Robertson, Operations Manager at 619.445.7330 or email
