Movie in the park – Part II
The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Sing as part of our summer movie series!
In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario’s attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists’ find that their lives will never be the same.
Sing will be shown on Friday, July 28th at the upper softball field of San Elijo Hills Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start after sunset (around 8:30PM).
The San Elijo Hills Foundation will provide food trucks and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase.
Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating.
For more information, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (760) 798-9015.
-It has been reported in various neighborhoods that there has been dogs off leashes. Pet owners shall at no times allow pets to run unrestrained in common areas, streets, sidewalks or pathway areas and shall at all times have full and complete control over the animal. Please remember there is a $250 fine from the county (San Diego County Code Sec. 63.0102(b)(2)) for unrestrained pets.
-Please pick up after your pets and remind your children to do so as well if they are responsible for the dog-walking duties. Pet waste is probably the #1 complaint amongst our residents so please be diligent and keep San Elijo Hills looking and smelling beautiful!
-Please remember to trim any trees growing over the sidewalks or dropping seeds or leaves. They can create unsafe conditions for people and pets. We appreciate your efforts in keeping the sidewalks and streets looking great!

The City of San Marcos is kicking off a #DiscoverSanMarcos photo scavenger hunt Monday, Aug. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 30. Visit local parks, trails, facilities, activities and events to receive participation souvenirs and a chance to win gift cards and a WinCo shopping spree valued up to $500.
“With thousands of programs and healthy activities offered each year, this scavenger hunt is a fun way to help residents discover all that San Marcos has to offer,” said Community Services Director Buck Martin. “From hiking to concerts to swimming, athletics, arts and dance classes, San Marcos has something for everyone.”
Designed to encourage residents to discover the variety of recreation places and programs that the City has to offer, the #DiscoverSanMarcos scavenger hunt asks participants to take photos at a variety of pre-determined locations.
“Social media is a great way for the community to engage with their government and learn about city services, issues, news and event,” said Communications Officer Sarah Macdonald.
Participants are encouraged to post the photos to social media and tag images with the hashtag #DiscoverSanMarcos along with a location-specific tag listed on the scavenger hunt photo log.
“By using the #DiscoverSanMarcos tag during the scavenger hunt, residents can help others discover San Marcos and all the things that make this community a vibrant place to live, work and play,” said Macdonald.
Here’s how it works:
- Like and Follow @sanmarcoscity on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
- Visit www.san-marcos.net/DiscoverSanMarcos for a complete listing of destinations and a photo log to track scavenger hunt discoveries.
- Snap photos at each location, post it to social media and tag your photo with the hashtag #DiscoverSanMarcos along with the location-specific tag indicated on the photo log.
- For the last stop, visit the San Marcos Community Center at 3 Civic Center Drive to complete a registration form and show city staff your log and scavenger hunt photos.
Participants will receive a program souvenir and earn one raffle ticket for each photo stop completed for the chance to win prizes donated by local businesses. Prize drawings will be conducted in early November.
For more information, visit www.san-marcos.net/DiscoverSanMarcos or contact San Marcos Community Services at (760) 744-9000.
A new communication effort for residents entitled “ENGAGE San Marcos” was launched in February with rousing success. The campaign is part of the city’s ongoing effort to increase communication and interaction with residents. The effort centers around two new digital advances – a newly designed website and the addition of an Instagram account to the city’s social media lineup.
The city’s new website showcases an improved design with the most popular items right up front, making it easier than ever to navigate the site. An interactive map directory of parks and facilities, online facility reservations and streamlined department pages with easy to find contact information are also featured. Residents will continue to enjoy existing popular services like online class registration and job applications.
Another exciting component of the ENGAGE San Marcos communications campaign is the addition of an Instagram account, which complements the City’s already active social engagements on both Facebook and Twitter.
“Instagram is arguably one of the powerful social networks on the plant and reaches a demographic not always engaged on other social sites,” explained Communications Officer Sarah Macdonald. “Adding this platform helps the City reach out to a wider spectrum of constituents.”
To get residents engaged on this platform, the City is promoting #discoversanmarcos and is asking residents to post pictures of San Marcos using this hashtag.
