“I Love A Clean Alpine” Community Cleanup – April 21, 2018

Join Back Country Land Trust to help clean up our beautiful town of Alpine.

I Love A Clean Alpine will take place on Saturday, April 21st at the Alpine Regional Center (1620 Alpine Boulevard) from 9 am – 12 pm.

We’ll be cleaning up trash at Alpine Blvd & Tavern Rd with our partners at I Love A Clean San Diego as part of the 16th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup!

Last year, a record breaking 6,588 volunteers came out to our 112 sites and successfully removed over 194,169 pounds of litter and debris. Instead of turning a blind eye to the abundance of litter found across San Diego County, our volunteers channeled their passion into action for San Diego’s environment to protect and enhance it.

Online registration is here: http://creektobay.org/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=2

Host a Short-Term Foreign Exchange Student from Belgium This Summer 2018!

This summer Alpine/ Lakeside/El Cajon will be the home for 26 foreign exchange students (ages 16-19) from Belgium. The students will be herefor 3 weeks and will be with a group that organizes their days and takes them to all the amusements, such as Sea World, Disneyland, etc. They also travel for 5 days to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.

We are looking for families to host the students and give them an American experience while they are here. Evenings and weekends they can participate in family activities such as going to the desert, church, sporting events, beach, BBQs, or whatever else a typical American family does! Families with teens are especially urged to participate. Hosts will be compensated for a student’s room and board…but the cultural exchange is priceless!

Student Groups are scheduled for:
July 5 – July 28, 2018 (gone 7/16-20)
August 2 – August 25, 2018 (gone 8/13-17)

FAQ:
What do I need to provide for my student?
Students need their own bed, (but not their own room or bath), they will need breakfast available and a packed lunch for some of their daily excursions. They will have dinners with the family.

Do I need to go on the daily excursions?
No. There will be a central drop off place in a nearby area where all of the students will meet each morning to go on their tours. You may be able to carpool with other host families for pick up and drop off.

Can I host more than one student?
Yes, families are encouraged to host two students if they are able to do so, and/or to host during both sessions.

For more information, please contact Jaime Petruccelli at 619-339-4635 (call or text) or email at jaimepetruccelli@gmail.com.  I look forward to being an ambassador with you this summer!

Our primary purpose is the security and comfort of our animals. To this end volunteers help across our organization to accomplish this goal. Be it working on a mailing for an upcoming fundraiser or building a fence – there is no task that is any more or less important if the end result helps our rescued animals. All of our volunteer duties require extra effort and the dedication on the part of those who are willing. Your desire to help is greatly appreciated!

Just a few of the many duties LTB needs volunteers for:

LTB Volunteers · Office Help

Volunteers Needed at The Alpine Historical & Conservation Society

Volunteers Needed! The Alpine Historical & Conservation Society runs entirely on volunteer labor. While this allows us to use all of the membership fees and donations for maintaining the museum facilities and paying for program expenses, it sometimes makes it difficult to accomplish all the day-today chores that it takes to run a museum & historical society.

We need your help. Do you feel like your skills and abilities are languishing due to non-use? Do you want to do something meaningful for your community? Well, we’ve got an offer for you. There are a few Board of Director positions that need to be filled for the coming year.

Responsibilities for each position are described below. Each position requires you to be a member of the Alpine Historical & Conservation Society, and to attend our Board meetings on the second Thursday of each month from 3:00 to 4:30 pm.

• SECRETARY: Takes notes & minutes at monthly Board meetings. Presents meeting minutes to the Board of Directors for approval. Time commitment is approximately 2-3 hours per month.

• TREASURER: Checks PO Box regularly for bills and donations. Pays the bills and deposits donations. Enters financial data in Quick Books software program. Prepares monthly financial report for Board of Directors. Coordinates preparation of tax returns and government forms. Time commitment varies by month and season but averages 4-5 hours per month.

• PROPERTY MANAGER: Responsible for the care and maintenance of the museum buildings. This includes occasionally performing minor repair & maintenance, coordinating work with the museum caretaker, requesting contractor proposals for more difficult projects, monitoring contractor performance, and reporting monthly activities to Board of Directors. Time commitment varies by month and season but averages 5-6 hours per month.

To volunteer, please contact Tom Myers at 619-885-8063, or you can send a note to info@alpinehistory.org or to PO Box 382, Alpine, CA 91903

Help Save and Reconstruct Roy Athey’s Former Alpine Mine Train Exhibit

Help save and reconstruct the former Alpine Mine Train Exhibit

The Campo Railroad Park & Museum has set up a donation page to help offset the costs of relocating and reconstructing the former Alpine train to the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum (PSRM) in Campo.  Formerly lovingly operated for children of all ages by Roy Athey, the Museum is committed to keeping the legacy alive in Campo with a dynamic exhibit of not only the train ride but also to include a faux mine complete with mining equipment to explain San Diego County’s many gold and precious metal mines.

Moving the train and setting it up was an unexpected gift and funds are simply not available today to put it back together.  “The Museum is extremely grateful for the donation” said Jim Lundquist, Alpine resident and the Museum’s Director of Museum Services.  “Last year, we had a need to invest over $120,000 in our railway, and there were no funds available at this time to fund the development of the mine train including the relocation of the equipment from Alpine, the grading and preparation of the roadbed, laying tracks, installing electrical power, constructing the mine tunnel and building another passenger coach.”

The budget for the project is:

Finish the Grading for the Mine Train including depot and platforms            6400

Concrete crossing of mine train and driveway, setting up the wig-wag          4800

Three 9′ 6″ containers set up, covered with asphalt/similar, covered with

Dirt/wood, w/tracks and basic mine exhibit                                                    18,000

400 amp/240 volt electrical service to the mine for charging batteries            5200

Construct an additional coach and add mechanical emergency brakes

for two coaches and the caboose                                                                      5000

Contingency (20%)                                                                                             8000

TOTAL                                                                                                              47,400

 

The first $1,000 has been donated towards that cause with the donation of a RV to the Museum which has been sold.  In addition, John Hansen House Movers has stepped in to underwrite the majority of the costs to relocate the small depot from Alpine to Campo.  “Many people have expressed gratitude to Roy for his years of train rides and his finding a good home for the train” said Lundquist.  “Our hope now is those same people, and anyone with an interest in children and history to assist us with a cash donation.”

Donations can be made through the Museum’s web site at:   www.camporailroadpark.com/donate.  Select mine train as your donation fund.  If you would like to assist Lundquist in reconstructing the railway in Campo, volunteers are needed for that effort as well.  Email Jim@psrm.org to offer your services.

The Pacific Southwest Railway Museum is located at 750 Depot St, Campo, CA 91906

OPEN WEEKENDS ONLY
