Executive Director's Notes

By Franҫoise Rhodes

I recently had a telephone conversation with a visitor coming for Borrego Days. In our conversation this fellow said "I hope there is a parade, it's the best part."

I replied,"no, the entire two day festival is the best part," and then I went on to explain that after numerous calls to the community for a parade committee, there wasn't a committed group willing to do it once they were given the information regarding County guidelines, etc.

He thought for a minute and then said "You're right and I completely understand, and you know what, we had a great time last year without the parade."

So please.............before you talk-down about the entire festival because of no parade, myself and the board of directors would love a parade, but we need a committed group of volunteers to organize and run it in place by June 1. think about it for 2024!

Borrego Day Volunteers Needed!

If you are considering being a volunteer please send me an email and our Volunteer Coordinator

Joy McBride will start contacting people on the list in mid September.

September Activities At The Senior Center

Did You Know?

The name “September” comes from an old Roman word, “septem,” which actually means 7. That’s right – September was the seventh month of the year on the Roman calendar – It did not become the ninth month until the advent of the

Gregorian calendar.

The Romans believed that September was looked after by the god of fire. So they always expected fires and volcanic eruptions to occur during this month.

Out of all 12 months of the year, September is spelled with the most letters. It contains nine letters, and it happens to be the ninth month of the year. No other months have the same amount of letters as their number in the calendar year.
