After many months of working together on our web campaigns, Lindsay and Andrew decided to become an even bigger part of the Market, and so it was only natural that they became our Market Managers!
 
“We are very excited to be managing the Alpine Farmers Market. Not only do we LOVE all of the local produce and goodies that it provides for us, but we love the feeling we get when we are there…it is a feeling of community, home and support for our town. We are excited to bring a little of our personality to the Market and to see all of our family and friends enjoying all that the Alpine Farmers Market has to offer!” -
Lindsay and Andrew

Teeny “Mimi” Makes Big Waves

Helen Woodward Animal Center introduces Mimi looking for a forever home

________Mimi-2 Mimi-5

Meet Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Pet-of-the-Week, Mimi! This 2-year old, 10lb Dachshund/Chihuahua blend is the life of the party and an all-around love bug. She’s a playful girl who loves toy-time, exploring on walks, and burrowing in blankets for snuggle time. Mimi is dreaming of a happy home with you, you, you- come meet her today!

Mimi is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. She has been spayed and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $299, and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, she is micro chipped for identification.  As an added bonus, Mimi also comes with two free passes to Sea World!

Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 7pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).”

For more information call 858-756-4117, (option 1) or visit www.animalcenter.org.
