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!

Board of Directors:

Your Board of Directors is hard at work with many on-going projects.

If you have recently driven through our entrance, you may have noticed that a significant amount of plants have been added around the entry water feature creating a more colorful and diverse palette. In conjunction with this upgrade, the Board has also been focusing on the monument area and signage. The Board is actively pursuing proposals to modify the signage and incorporate additional water elements into the design.

Along with the upgrades, the Board of Directors have been diligently working to fix the entry water feature which has been non-operational due to pump failure. The pump replacement has been approved and is in process. We are excited to see what is in store for this area as the Board finalizes their plans!

What is San Elijo Life and How do I Participate?

San Elijo Life ™  – #1 Community Website for Everything in San Elijo Hills

What is San Elijo Life and How do I Participate?

San Elijo Life ™ – #1 Community Website for Everything in San Elijo Hills since 2006. We cover News and Events for San Marcos and San Elijo Hills.

The intention of San Elijo Life is to support San Elijo Hills and San Marcos resident’s with current information and ideas. We have lived in SEH since 2004 and have a great love for “Life in The Hills.” The site is independent from the developer and the homeowner’s association (HOA). The site is supported by paid advertising. We welcome guest posts and reporting, and your participation!

Participation

The key to San Elijo Life is the participation of its readers on our site and social media. We encourage everyone to share what they see, what they know, and how they feel. Here are 7 ways that you can contribute to the San Eljio Life, and be part of San Elijo Hills and San Marcos open online community.

List is not in order of priority or importance.

  1. REPORT BREAKING NEWS – Hear or witness some news? Send a breaking news report to hillslocal@sanelijolife.com or post on our Facebook Page. It can be as brief as one sentence or posted as a request for more information. Example: “Three fire trucks just went by with sirens blaring. What is up?” We’ll post the report and people who see it on the site or social media will add details. We can sort it out as a group that is open to all. Communication will help us all.
  2. BE A REPORTER – Do you know about something interesting happening in San Elijo Hills or San Marcos? If it is interesting to you, then it’s sure to be interesting to others in the community. Send it in via email or Facebook post or IM us via Facebook. We try to be fast!
  3. COMMENT – Share what you know on our site and Facebook. Whether its details about a breaking news report, government press release, citizen report, photo, or anything else posted on the website, the San Elijo Hills/San Marcos community benefits when you add your input. Sometimes you might have an answer to a specific question, other times you might know some related piece of information. Once again, if it is interesting to you, it will be interesting to others.
  4. WRITE AN OP-ED/GUEST POST – Got an opinion about something local? Write it down and argue your side of the story. Op-EDs should be between 500 to 1000 words in length. We require that you be willing to share your name with readers. Op-EDs cannot promote local businesses or political figures, and are subject to approval of San Elijo Life. Maybe you would like to write a weekly cooking post? This is a great chance for local students to practice some journalism. Photos are important and help tell the story.
  5. POST AN EVENT – It’s the same form for news or events. Be sure to include the date, time, place and any other information about the event. Be sure to specify whether it is a free event or not. Please also send a photo or logo. Please share who is producing/hosting the event, some readers think we host the Farmers Market, Business Expo etc. :).
  6. ASK A QUESTION – Got something you want to know that has local relevance? The question could be historical, factual or just something you’re curious about. Lots of great insight comes from “Question and Answer” posts. Email your question to hillslocal@sanelijolife.com, or post on Facebook.
  7. TELL A FRIEND – If a friend shows you a cool local photo, tells you some news, conveys a strong opinion … tell them that they should send their stuff in to San Elijo Life! We have a lot of new San Elijo Hills residents who are not clear on what going on and who is responsible for what..lets sort this out and work as a community and be #sanelijothankful
