Eagle ceremony

Fong familyRancho Murieta’s bumper crop of Eagle Scouts continued Monday night as Garrett Fong was awarded the rank of Eagle in a ceremony at Rancho Murieta Community Church. That's Troop 633 Scoutmaster Brian Correia, left, speaking of the qualities of Garrett, who's flanked by his mother, Karen, and father, Kenton, the assistant scoutmaster. Almost 100 people were on hand for the ceremony and refreshments afterwards. There was a slide show of Garrett’s years in scouting, in which, as Correia pointed out to laughter, you could see Garrett getting taller and his father getting grayer. In addition to hugs and thanks for his parents, Garrett thanked scout mentors all the way back to his Cub Scouts days, his Future Farmers of America advisor and the men who helped him with welding work for his Eagle project. For that project, Garrett, who’s 17, designed and built four permanent recycling bins to be placed in community parks. He’s an incoming senior at Pleasant Grove High this fall and he hopes to pursue higher education in animal sciences. (Click photos for larger images.)

Movie Night

Photo gallery: Faces in the crowd (32 photos)

Many kids were bundled up for Saturday night's Movie Night, staged by the Rancho Murieta Association. It was a family-friendly gathering that drew between 150 and 200 people to a pleasantly brisk Lake Clementia Amphitheater. Pre-movie, the adults socialized as the kids danced and ran around, and many picnicked. The movie was "Ferdinand," an animated story of a young bull who'd rather sniff flowers than fight. Read more » Read more » about A movie night for the whole family

Giant flag

Retiring the 27-foot flag from the Murieta Equestrian Center was a group effort. (Click photos for larger images.)

BagpipesEven without a blazing fire, it would have been hot at Lake Calero Monday evening. But Boy Scout Troop 633 had a mission. With solemn precision, the scouts retired more than 200 worn and tattered U.S. flags, consigning them to the flames as a small, respectful crowd watched from lawn chairs and golf carts, and piper Chuck Jamison played “Amazing Grace” and patriotic airs. It took the efforts of every scout and all the scout leaders to display a 27-foot flag from the Murieta Equestrian Center one last time before they placed it in the fire. Read more » Read more » about Remembering those who gave us our nation

The 2018 Maypole has all the kids it needs

Maypole

The circling of the pole is fun, but even more so when some of the kids are dressed in finery from springtimes long ago. That was the case with Brooke Blaisdell, 11 (as well as her sister, Allie, 9). (Click for larger image.)

The 25th annual Rancho Murieta Maypole almost didn’t happen, says Pamela Haines, who puts on the annual event. “Up until two days ago, I did not plan on doing the Maypole this year,” she wrote last week. It took a call from a mom – a fan of the event – who promised to bring her children and get others to bring theirs too. Read more » Read more » about The 2018 Maypole has all the kids it needs
