Brea 8k Classic Marathon

The 22nd Annual Brea 8k Classic is this Sunday February 24th. This is a fun mini marathon that anyone can run. It can be fun for the whole family. I have ran the Brea 8k in past years and it was a big enjoyment. There were professionals there who blazed through and actually ran the marathon several times, they kept lapping me. And there were those that had to walk because of a past condition. Mothers brought their babies in strollers and some walked their pets.

Last year a new route was introduces as well as chip timing. This year will be no different. Registration seems like it will be higher this year than last.

The Brea 8k Classic supports various Brea Olinda High School programs that will receive funds from the race.  The Academic Booster Club, programs like Speech and Debate and Academic Decathlon will benefit, as will graduating seniors receiving scholarships. On the arts side, the high school instrumental program and, for the first time, vocal music program will receive a portion of the proceeds. Also for the first time, the BOHS Global IT Academy is taking an active role and will benefit from the race. The goal is to raise at least $50,000 for Brea Olinda High School programs.

Yorba Linda Honors Its Service Members

The City of Yorba Linda has a long history of honoring those who have served their country, including those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The City of Yorba Linda Military Recognition Program extends our citizens’ appreciation for the dedication and duty these brave men and women have exhibited in a variety of acknowledgments. The honorees must either be living in a Yorba Linda home or have an immediate family member living here.

The program includes both an official designation with a Certificate of Recognition followed by a televised listing of their name and service information on City Channel 3. The intent is to disseminate this recognition as completely throughout the city and surrounding region as possible. There is also an option to purchase a U.S.-flag emblazoned banner of the designation. But the city does not stop there: four other acknowledgement programs are underway in Yorba Way: the Veterans Memorial “Bricks” at Veterans Park, the Wall of Recognition, the Adopt a Military Unit Information and the Flag Box. You can read more details about each here.

These programs are a small way for our residents to pay due respect to our fellow citizens who have gone above and beyond in the service to their country. It also represents the communal spirit so evident in Yorba Linda and its environs. We’ve long experienced the pride that residents here take in each other and in their neighborhoods. This type of civic duty and pride is why we celebrate Yorba Linda as a wonderful place to call home.

If you are looking for a new Yorba Linda home or a viable relocation and this type of positive community spirit is important to you, give me a call today so that I can help you begin the search.

View the Space Station Today!!

Today the International Space Station will fly over Brea and Fullerton and other areas of Orange County and Los Angeles. The Space Station will be visible to the naked eye. Conditions are right as there are Santa Ana Wind conditions that should keep the skys clear.

Today at 5:59PM the International Space Station will be visible for about 3 minutes. It will be traveling southwest to northeast. If you look right at 5:59PM today and look southwest horizon you will see a light appear in the sky, out of the blue, and will travel in a smooth straight line towards the San Gabriel mountains.

Last time the Space Station was visible in our area was this past summer. It looks like a big bright white star sliding through the sky.

If you take a picture, please share.
