Parents of Aliso Niguel presented the 8th Annual Taste of Aliso Niguel at the Laguna Niguel Design Center this past Saturday.     It is an annual tradition that supports Aliso Niguel High School's Clubs and Communities.

View of the Week: On Not Giving Up....

As we go "dark"and gear up for a new week throughout #Outsiders , we wanted to share this courtesy of +Jonathan Huie which we follow closely here @ #Outsiders that underscores some poignant advise as a new week dawns here throughout the #Outsiders network:

Don't give up.
There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you.
Don't listen to them.
The only one who can make you give up is yourself.
- Sidney Sheldon

Keep moving. Don't stop. But don't rush.
Don't race around.
Sure and steady gets you there every time.
- Neale Donald Walsch

You make a mistake, you keep going.
- Linda Gray

Achievement seems to be connected with action.
Successful men and women keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
- Conrad Hilton

On the Prowl In South County: Around Town in Laguna Niguel

The last few weeks in Laguna Niguel has been quite interesting.      The CEPA Academy Graduation ceremony was held whereby A class of 20 Citizens were trained in the latest Emergency Preparedness techniques.   They were charged with evacuating victims after an naturally disaster at the old County Courthouse.    It was kind of ironic because the City has embarked an aggressive and interesting plan to create a vibrant and engaging Downtown which we hope to comment on over the ensuing days and weeks.  A Community meeting was held on it by the Developer on Friday at Laguna Niguel City Hall.

April 18 is also a crucial day for the City as it celebrates...

It is  slated to be held at Crown Valley Regional Park's Niguel Botanical Preserve.   We look forward to reporting on it here in South County Matters.
