Around South County (10/1/2014): On Election, An Oasis of Love & Other Thoughts as A New Quarter Dawns.... 
South Orange County is in the midst of election fever ever more.    All Registered Voters should have received their sample ballots and all absentee ballots should be receiving their ballots soon.    Although some of the local coverage has not been as vibrant, it will still be an exciting race to the finish.    The top two candidates for 5th District Supervisor, Robert Ming & Lisa Bartlett, are at it as Laguna Niguel has six leading citizens vying for the two open seats on the Council:

Beyond the on-going political change in the air here in South County, we also have cause to celebrate.   One of them is what we view as an "Oasis of Love" that we had a chance to tour this week:

Second Harvest Food Bank is an organization that is at the forefront of eradicating hunger in Orange County.    They have initiated a number of very innovative ideas (including the Farm & engaging ideas with the youth) that shows how they are at the foreOn a side note, we are also pleased to report on an initiative done earlier within our Community.    One major initiative that will commence in earnest during October is Scouting for Food throughout South Orange County.

As the new Month dawned, we were also pleased to see this reported out in the Orange County Register on the Michael Chang Tennis Classic.  This fabulous event was eld in Newport Beach over the summer and raised $90,000 to support local charities.   It was especially gratifying to see that HomeAid Orange County received $ 60,000 and $ 30,000 was given to the Michael Change Foundation for its' on-going community work.   We here @ Outsiders had the pleasure to join this day of service and support it.

So much to be thankful for as a New Quarter Dawns......
