Once a year???? I do it once a week ... well 4 times a month so technically slightly less than once a week.

And it is regularly scheduled and business does not interfere.

Once or twice a year it's usually the waterway clean-up that gets me out of work for at least half a day at a time. Mangroves capture a lot of debris that circulates in and out with each tide. There's always plenty unfortunately!

Yes, every year we not only participate in but help sponsor our annual Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club annual Beach Bocce Ball World Championship which has raised over 1 million dollars in the past 38 years.

I highly recommend it as a great family outing and a wonderful day at the beach even if you don't participate and don't forget to bring Fido as "Dog Beach" (the event location) where the "Turf Meets The Surf down at 'Ole Del Mar"

We also promote and participate in the action packed fun filled "Neptune 4th of July Parade" on Neptune in Leucadia which will be celebrating some 30 plus years of a totally un permitted and un regulated non bureaucratic fun event where you will see everything from ole Woodies to Ferrari's, golf carts, kids on bikes, skates, scooters and skateboards along with floats and what would a Neptune Day Parade be without the one and only "King Neptune"

Yes, as a real estate agent who helps people move home I support SWAGS for the Homeless and purchase a backpack bed every time I appraise, sell or buy a home. I do lots of community days as well but Backpack Beds are an important issue and although an Australian design and invention, they are available in USA as well, so if you can, spread the word about them.

I have a strong background in Fine Arts and serve on our local Arts Council. We bring international level musicians to our rural area to give master classes and performances for the local schools. With so many music budgets being slashed, I feel its important to ensure that students have exposure to top notch musicians. The local community also benefits from the low-cost concerts that are also provided.

When I was a broker I got so involved with animal rescue that it's a wonder I had time for work. And then there was the Chamber of Commerce... If you aren't careful, volunteerism can take over your life.
