1. It’s good to share: San Juan Elementary’s annual night of sharing is tonight at 6. This year, the school is asking families to share a plate with their favorite cookies or bocadillos (bite-size) dessert. Students are encouraged to wear their pajamas and relax while they view one of the local traditions, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Everyone will get to try a sampler of the traditional cookies that each family brings to the event! We will also have some traditional holiday songs and music. It’s a fun evening for everyone and you will go home having learned about the many different cultural traditions that are part of our San Juan School scholars.
2. Have you worked your net? On Tuesday, the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce is holding its networking lunch at Harlow’s from 11: a.m. to 1 p.m.
3. Basket-weaving 101, really: From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, experience the art of basket weaving, a Native American tradition, at Mission San Juan Capistrano.
4. Merry fiesta! The Fiesta Association has its Christmas party from 6-11 p.m. at the San Juan Hills Golf Club. Tickets are $20.
5. While you’re thinking about what to give: The week before Christmas is a great time to donate food to needy local families. Consider a donation of food of funds to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. The organization distributes more than 18 million pounds of food annually through hundreds of community partners.
