Harvest Market

On Saturday, November 18th from 10AM-3PM, the San Elijo Recreation Center, 1105 Elfin Forest Road, San Elijo Hills, San Marcos, will be transformed into a fabulous holiday shopping experience guaranteed to put everyone in the mood for the season ahead. The event, formerly co-sponsored by the San Elijo Hills Women’s Club (SEHWC) and the City of San Marcos, is now hosted solely by the SEHWC, with all proceeds benefitting the SEHWC Scholarship Program.

This is a vetted event and several favorite vendors from past years will be available, in addition to many first-time participants — all offering a fun and diverse variety of holiday and non-holiday items for everyone’s shopping enjoyment. Don’t miss this great opportunity to do your holiday shopping in a relaxed, stress-free environment! RUSH Coffee Truck will be on site during the morning with specialty coffees and treats. Delectable home-baked goodies will be sold during the SEHWC Bake Sale, and seasonal favorites and fall-inspired snacks from Cafe Stoked will be served as shoppers stroll among the booths. Live music will help create a festive atmosphere, and children will have the opportunity to work off some of their energy in the KIDS’ ZONE. Be sure to buy Raffle tickets for a chance to win a Date Night Basket and Fitness Basket, each brimming with hundreds of dollars in gift cards and certificates–generous donations from San Elijo Hills proprietors and surrounding businesses.

The Holiday Market promises to be a wonderful family activity, a fun girlfriends’ Saturday get-together, and an opportunity for parents and grandparents to do some early holiday shopping. Make plans now to attend this exciting fall event!

Town Square Park Gazebo

The gazebo around the fountain is getting a makeover! If you have visited the park, you may have noticed that the wood is in disrepair and rotted.

If you have any questions regarding the event or would like additional information, please feel free to contact your Community Director, Liz McCardle, at (760) 798-9015 or email sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Disney’s Moana (rated PG) as the final movie of the summer series!

An adventurous teenager sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, who guides her in her quest to become a master way-finder.

Car Burglaries

It has been brought to the Association’s attention that car burglaries and vandalism are on the rise in San Elijo Hills. We found great resources on sdsheriff.net. Here are some tips off of their website:

Help Prevent Vehicle Theft
Car thieves, like home burglars, look for easy targets. Car owners obligingly leave doors unlocked, windows open, or their keys in the vehicle. Criminals usually DO NOT want to be seen, heard, or take an excessive amount of time to break in.

PREVENTION CHECKLIST- DO YOU…?
□ Lock your vehicle
□ Lock your windows
□ Take your keys with you
□ Remove your garage remote
□ Set your alarm
□ Remove number codes from your keys
□ Lock vent windows (trucks)
□ Leave only your ignition key when having your vehicle serviced
□ Remove spare keys hidden on or in your vehicle. Consider a spare key in your wallet
□ Park and lock your vehicles in garages when possible. Remove personal information such as driver license, registration etc, from unattended vehicles.
□ Carry a copy of your registration in your wallet for ease of identification in case of emergency or theft
□ Know your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
□ Use additional identification methods such as “Data Dots,” engravers, and dye markers
□ Place additional identification marks in several places such as tailgates, spoilers, and under the hood
□ Take a picture of your car with the plate number visible. Etch VIN numbers into all windows.

Help Prevent Vehicle Burglary
Preventing thieves from breaking into your vehicle to steal valuables is very difficult. If you want to protect your personal property, DO NOT leave it in your car.

PREVENTION CHECKLIST-DO’S and DON’Ts…
□ Do not leave purses, wallets, laptops, expensive sun glasses, cell phones and other valuables in
your vehicle
□ Never leave valuables in plain sight
□ Lock all valuables in the trunk or take them with you
□ Remove detachable stereos and faceplates from your vehicle every time
□ Never leave CASH visible.
□ Always lock your doors
□ Always lock your windows
□ Take your keys with you every time
□ Take purses and wallets inside your house after you lock and park your car in your garage
□ When equipment or tools must be kept in a vehicle, use a strong-walled, tamper proof box that can be bolted down and secured with heavy duty locks. Do not assume a box is secure because it is heavy

PARK CAREFULLY
• Use all the security measures available to you, wherever you park, even in your garage.
• At home, the best place to park is a well secured garage with car doors locked and alarm set. Secure your garage as if you had $20,000.00 cash sitting inside.
• Vehicles are 5 times more likely to be stolen from unattended parking lots than from the street or an attended lot.
• At work and in commercial areas try to park in well-lit areas, close to entrances, and near pedestrian traffic.
• Turn your wheels sharply and apply the emergency brake when parking to deter unauthorized towing.
• Lock your door and windows when parking in your driveway.

SECURITY DEVICES AND ALARMS
No security device is foolproof, but good vehicle security can greatly reduce your chances of becoming a victim. Consider installing at least two of the following security devices on your vehicle.
• Stolen Vehicle Recovery System (SVRS) to assist law enforcement with tracking and recovery.
• A kill switch or cut-off switch (an electrical device that effectively immobilizes the vehicle, even if the ignition has been forced. It prevents electrical current from reaching the coil distributor).
• Alarm devices with visible L.E.D. indicators that activate a siren, horn, lights – or all three.
• Visible L.E.D. alarm indicator
• Fuel switch to prevent fuel from reaching the carburetor.
• Device that attaches to the steering wheel or brake pedal.
• Auxiliary locking devices for window wings, sliding windows, spare tires and the hood.
• Interior hood and trunk releases.
• Locking gas cap.
• Tapered door lock buttons.
• A good quality steering wheel locking device.
• A circular metal band, or “collar” to protect the ignition lock from tampering.
• Self arming and anti code-grabbing alarm features
