What’s New in PQ?

The Town Council has a new executive board for the 2019-2020 term: Kate Glenn, President; Jonathan Palinkas, Vice President; Erin Gentile, Secretary; Brian Reschke, Treasurer; and Alan Gin, Parliamentarian. The new executive team is eager to bring an energized perspective of what it means to commune together in Rancho Peñasquitos through our events, community grants, and sponsorships program that enrich the quality of our lives in PQ.

Our summer is usually over after Labor Day or the first day of school. The Poway Unified School District’s first day of classes is Aug. 21. We have two Movies in the Park that are always fun for the whole family!

Whether you’ve lived here for years or just arrived, we welcome everyone to take on a ‘community perspective’ with us as we head into fall.

Through community events and programs that foster goodwill, it’s easy to get lost in the background. The Town Council is here to support the community interest and rely on the support of community donations to bring our events to life. Our events bring a sense of inclusion for all and a safe place to call home. This is your invitation to get involved with us. We have six community events annually, with a huge fundraising campaign to restore the annual summer fireworks show in PQ for July 2020. Join us, roll up your sleeves, and let’s rock our community spirit by making new memories with new friends and neighbors starting right now.
