What’s New in PQ?

As the weather cools down and we start to feel winter coming, the thought of warm cookies and a cup of hot cocoa sounds pretty great! Also, winter is a time where we recognize our blessings and make extra effort to help those less fortunate. It is with these thoughts that the Rancho Peñasquitos Town Council presents its 2nd Annual Cookies and Cocoa with Santa event. Since this event is also a toy drive to support Voices for Children, we hope you can donate a new item, such as a soft toy, book, or gift card for Santa to deliver to deserving children. Here are some details:

Date/Time: Dec. 13 from 2 to 5 p.m.
Location: DoubleTree Inn, Rivera Room
Special Guests: Voices For Children – CASA and child representatives
Refreshments: Starbucks, It’s A Piece of Cake
Entertainment: The Bill Dutton Rockin Jazz Big Band, photo booth from Gemini Photography, kids crafts with Discovery Isle

As you can see from the details, it will be a wonderful family event. Please be sure to check out our Facebook and website for more details. That’s not all that’s going on in PQ this winter! Check out these local community events:

PQ Recreation Council will bring a winter wonderland to Hilltop Park on Dec. 5. Christmas Card Lane (off Oviedo St.) will have its amazing light display WVHS and MCHS have winter theater performances.

Stay tuned for details on our 21st Fiesta de los Peñasquitos weekend: 5K Fun Run on April 30 and Parade/Fiesta on May 1. Even though the daylight hours seem short this winter, don’t let anyone tell you PQ is a sleepy suburb!
