The City of Mission Viejo and Rotary Club hosted the "Kids Splash Down" at the Sierra Recreation Center on Friday, August 2nd.
Many families gathered together to enjoy live music promoted by the Music Vault Academy, devour pizza, and participate in/watch the Belly Flop and Cannonball contest.
Dave Leckness (Kwik Copy Printing) was the vivacious MC and the guest judges (Mayor Raths, Sergeant Perez, and "Captain America" Chamber Director John Rodriguez) were called upon to render their decisions based upon each contestant's performance. Councilwoman, Wendy Bucknum, also added some excitement as she "false attempted" to jump in the pool! LOL
What a great evening of fun and laughs for our community!

We thank Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett's Office (5th District) for providing helpful tips on earthquake preparedness from ReadyOC.
Every year California experiences approximately 500 earthquakes that are large enough to be detected and felt by local residents. Since Orange County has a number of seismic faults, earthquakes are almost an expected part of living here. Residents should be prepared by identifying safe places in each room of their homes and taking other precautions such as securing furniture and checking for gas leaks.
Please take a moment to read the lifesaving information provided at http://www.readyoc.org.
