Members are the primary source of volunteers and critical to the success of events such as the Kids Pet Parade, Taste of San Juan, Hoos’Gow Day and other community-oriented events during the Fiesta de las Golondrinas season.
Monthly meetings are held on each Wednesday of the month beginning in January through March and on the second Wednesday of the month during the off season at the Nydegger Building located at 31421 la Matanza St, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675
