SVCA MONTHLY MEETING -- Agenda
Wednesday 7/01/2015 -- 7:00-8:30pm -- BONITA LIBRARY COMMUNITY ROOM
  • EXCITING NEWS! After many years in the same location, the SVCA has relocated its monthly meetings to the Community Room of the Bonita-Sunnyside Branch Library. The library is across the street from the Von's shopping center on Sweetwater Road. The move will provide a more convenient site for attendees, an ample and well-lit parking lot, and is in keeping with the original use and intent of the library's Community Room, according to Supervisor Greg Cox, who has endorsed the move. Early arrivals may also visit the co-located Bonita-Sunnyside Branch Library. Remember: you don't have to be a SVCA member to attend the meetings.
  • Our monthly meetings are very informative. Come hear the latest from the County of San Diego, CHP and Sheriff's Department, and so much more.
  • To catch up on the latest, see the Meetings & Minutes page. 
  • Our Membership Chair, Liz Stonehouse, is asking for members (residents, organizations and businesses) to join the SVCA. If you can't wait, please complete our 2016 membership form. We are looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting. Thank you for your support.
