Has Cancer affected you or a family member? Are you a Cancer Survivor?

Get Involved in our community by Joining the American Cancer Society and our 1st Annual Menifee Relay For Life - Aug. 26th & 27th at Mt. San Jacinto College- Menifee Campus.

Teams are now forming! New teams and those interested in forming a team should meet up for an important meeting Saturday August 5th, 11AM at the Wheatlfield Park Community Center (not the gym).

To learn more View the "Why We Relay Video" or visit The American Cancer Society Website.

This is a great way for us to help the American Cancer Society raise money to fight cancer. The relay is a 24 hour event and will include the participation of local businesses, neighborhoods, clubs and groups acting as a team to complete the event. Each team should have about 10-15 people minimum.

We have a handful of teams already but are looking for many more!

My car was found!

After 17 days, my car was found in Temecula. Not too bad of shape! Only trashed a little! My CD changer was still present although our portable DVD player for the kids was taken. It appears that the thief was using it to commit other crimes. There were 2 briefcases in my truck belonging to Temecula residents. The thief even left a 7 inch blade on my passenger seat. The Temecula police had the car taken to the tow yard and simply left the stolen items, including the knife in my car. When my wife went to drop the items back off at the police station off Auld Rd- the officer reluctantly took them from her and informed her that they would try and contact the people but that it was not high priority since they were understaffed. I guess catching these criminals, who are likely responsible for multiple thefts, is not a prioritiy.

Other than this event, I would say that Menifee is an excellent community and I am happy we moved here. I would not change a thing! We are an up and coming city and will become one of Southern California's nicest I am sure!
