Elly Harris, San Clemente
On behalf of the North Beach Community Association (NBCA), I would like to thank all of the North Beach businesses, residents and volunteers that helped make the North Beach Christmas Train event on Saturday evening such a huge success.
Bull Taco, Café Rae and Knuckleheads provided food and drink to locals who gathered to watch the train. The Courtney’s Sandcastle team and the pastry girls sold handmade treats. Local Brownie Troop No. 3007 helped behind the scenes, Rabit Juggling wowed the crowd and Ooh La La Carolers put us all in the Christmas mood. All vendors asked for a small donation and the generous people of San Clemente helped us raise $1,700 for Courtney’s Sandcastle.
A special thanks goes out to Pete van Nuys with Urban Bicycle Outfitters for their generous donation of bikes to the Spark of Love Toy Drive and thanks also to all of the local families who donated toys to this worthy cause. Thank you Jim Evert and the staff at the city of San Clemente for making this event possible—you guys are the best.
Last but not least, thanks to all the NBCA volunteers who made this event happen. We believe North Beach is a special place all year long but Saturday showed that businesses and residents in this part of town are a truly amazing group. Hooray for North Beach!
