SIA “Live Your Dream” $1500 Cash Award for Women Wage Earners – Apply TODAY!

live your dream

October 2017 – The SIA  Live Your Dream $1500 Cash Award application deadline is less than one month away. (November 15)

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. While 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,,  for qualifications or more information go to  Applications are due by November 15th, 2017


Entire application can be completed on line  and printed out , then submitted to SIAlpine Attention :    Linda at 1572 Suncrest Vista Lane, Alpine, CA  91901

“Chow Chow Chili”

Beautiful 1 year old female pocket size Chow mix.  Chili was rescued off the streets of Tijuana.  Because of her sweet temperament, a rescue group in Tijuana saved her life.  She is a little shy, but wants to know you more very quickly.  She is very sweet, inquisitive and ready for fun.  She is calm, playful and loving.  She gets along well with other dogs and people and wants to learn.  Chili would be great with a family or an individual who is active. She has been learning ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘shake’, and is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door.  She has been spayed, wormed and is up-to-date with her Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. Medical records will be provided.   Chili weighs about 30 lbs. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for her and her new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested.

If interested, please call or text Pam Lawless (Foster Mom) at: (619) 964-1181 or e-mail at


Sassy Pit Bull Miracle foundation 2-2017“Sassy” – Spent her whole life on a heavy chain
My name is Sassy. I am a little over five years old and new to the rescue. I came to my foster home where there are seven other rescue dogs. My foster mom says I am a great dog. I love to run around the yard, snuggle and get belly rubs. I have come such a long way from the life I knew before I was rescued.
My whole life I lived outdoors, with a heavy chain that kept me from being able to go any further that my dog house. I wasn’t allowed to go indoors no matter what the weather. This is all I knew since I was 8 months old. I was used for breeding until I was 4 then I was adopted by a neighbor who grew to love me. But my life was still outside, my dog house and chain came with me. When she couldn’t care for me she posted me on Craigslist ” Free, can still have puppies”. That’s when The Miracle Foundation found me.

I’ve been with my foster mom for about 5 months. My mom says I am very smart and eager to learn new things. I have learned to walk on my leash, and I know sit, down and stay. I also am very polite and ask to go out. My mom has also taught me that a kennel is a safe warm place to sleep at night or stay when she is not home. When my family is home my preference is to be with my humans, go for walks, or just cuddle. I get belly rubs which I enjoy very much.

I have met lots of other animals here, we have three cats and our neighbors have horses which I am getting used to. As for my health, I have been to the vet, and was recently spayed and was brought up to date on all my vaccines. The vet checked me over, I was treated for fleas and a few hot spots. I am very healthy now.

I am looking to find a family I call my very own. A family that will let me love them and allow me to be the dog my foster mom says I am. She says I have a silly personality and am very curious. I love the outdoors but I am very happy to come inside and be with my family, especially when it’s cold. My mom has me on a very healthy diet which has made me lean and strong.
If you would like to meet Sassy please email The Miracle Foundation at


It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.

Reverend Gay Beauregard’s 15 year of Ministerial Leadership Celebration – July 15, 2017

ALL ARE INVITED!! Reverend Gay Beauregard is celebrating her 15th year of Ministerial Leadership. Come celebrate with us on Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Alpine Women’s Club (2156 Alpine Blvd., Alpine CA 91901)

Fifteen years ago, in July 2002, Gay stepped up to take on the role of Senior Minister at Alpine Church of Spiritual Living. The church was originally founded as “Country Unity”, by her former mother-in law, Pauline Beauregard. However, after 4 changes in ministerial leadership, in a 10 year period, things weren’t going well. As Gay explains “a decision had been made to move the church down the hill, and I didn’t want to see that happen”. Although she had just graduated from ministerial school, she was determined to see the church spiritual needs of people living in our alpine community.  Not long after in October 2003, Alpine was struck by the “Cedar Fires”, and Reverend Gay began sending out messages of encouragement and support. Today these messages are published on the Alpine Community Network, and are widely known as the “Thought for the Week”. They are said to be driving force behind the Sunday services she leads at Alpine Church of Spiritual Living.

In celebration of Gays 15 years of inspirational leadership, a champagne reception is being held for her on Saturday, July 15th at the Alpine Women’s Club from 2 to 5 p.m. All are welcome to attend. For more information go to . Please call 619 445-6459 to RSVP.


Celebrate 4th of July at Alpine’s Big Parade & Carnival! – July 4, 2017

July 2, 2017 – The Alpine 4th of July Parade & Carnival is going to be a blast on July 4, 2017 at 10am! Everyone in the region is invited to Tuesday’s red, white and blue extravaganza in Alpine. The day will have plenty of family fun as the community celebrates with its first huge patriotic party in recent years. “As of yesterday, Congressman Duncan Hunter is going to be in the parade and (vintage) planes are going to fly over,” overall coordinator Pene Manale, president of the Kiwanis Club of Alpine, said early this week. “It’s a whole community effort. It’s going to make our community pull together, united.”

Presented by the Kiwanis Club of Alpine, the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce and the Alpine Community Center, anyone can participate in the parade and carnival as well as enjoy them. “Roughly, we’re going to have 45 entries,” said parade coordinator Hilde Hinchcliff, who organized Alpine’s former Crown Hills 4th of July Parade. Hinchcliff said two bands, about eight area queens and princesses, car clubs and others will be in this year’s colorful march.

The Alpine Community Church will ring its bell to start the parade at 10 a.m. on Alpine Boulevard at West Victoria Drive. Pastor Ken Colman will recite the first part of the nation’s Declaration of Independence, Manale said. For safety’s sake, no candy or other items is allowed to be tossed to parade spectators along the parade route. The march down the boulevard ends at the carnival at the Alpine Community Center Park, 1830 Alpine Blvd.


Games, a petting zoo, bounce house, live band, food, beer garden, dunk tank and more will be among the carnival attractions. The Alpine Knights of Columbus and the Kiwanis Club are in charge of the Deep Pit BBQ. Wild West shows by The Alpine Outlaws and Alpine local country singer Dannie Marie will entertain.

Sponsors making the celebration possible include Clayco Electric Inc., Solar Specialist; the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians; the Chamber; the Community Center; the Children’s Nature Retreat, Alpine View Lodge; Barons Market and Kahoots. For more information, call (619) 659-8727 or (619) 445-2722.
