Each month the Park Avenue Community Center publishes a newsletter. Recently, members of the senior community were asked to complete a survey for input on a new newsletter name and types of information they would like to recieve. After counting the votes, the newsletter is now named, PARK AVENUE POST. Also added is a table of contents to distinguish the different sections that make up the newsletter. Enjoy the new layout and the pertinent monthly updates. April 2021

With the change of season we have brought you a change of scenery! Welcome to the new look of the Escondido Senior Centers’ monthly newsletter. Not only has our look changed, we also have a new name that was voted on, and chosen by our senior community! The Park Avenue Post sounds like a throwback to days gone by when we all had a chance to enjoy our morning with a daily newspaper, and that is what has inspired the new look of our newsletter. Spring has sprung and we are all getting into the mood for a little spring cleaning. This is a wonderful opportunity for each of us to enjoy the spring weather and everything that comes with the changing season: birdwatching, taking a walk around your neighborhood or local parks, gardening, and just plain enjoying our great climate here in Escondido. Join us in welcoming our newest addition to our team here at the Park Avenue Community Center. Fernando Suarez del Solar is the new Senior Service Aid II. Fernando is a father of 4 and grandfather of 3. Fernando lives his life with a passion for activism and helping his fellow human being. He has traveled not only across the U.S. but internationally to share a message of brotherhood and encouraging people to take the path of non-violence and peace. Fernando plays the piano, violin, and the guitar. He enjoys many types of music including Classical, and Ranchera. Fernando looks forward to the “Fun Times” he will have with both our seniors and the staff here at the Park Avenue Community Center. Welcome to the PACC family Fernando! 1

San Dieguito River Park The San Dieguito River Park is more than 65 miles of trails of every level open year-round for day use free of charge. Trails are open to hikers, bikers, and equestrians. Our backbone multi-use trail – the Coast to Crest Trail – extends from the ocean at Del Mar to the San Dieguito River’s source on Volcan Mountain near Julian with multiple trailheads in the City of Escondido. Within the River Park, just south of the Westfield North County Mall, is the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. The Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead is a State Point of Historic Interest. Established around 1870, the Farmstead is a remarkable reminder of San Diego’s rural history. Through tours, field trips and events you can learn what life was like for the Sikes family in San Diego shortly after statehood.

38 SUMMER 2021 | Outdoor Activities

Every Sunday, Sikes hosts the North San Diego Certified Farmers Market open to the public for free from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Produce grown by volunteers at the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead is available for purchase at the Farmers Market.

Please keep up the great work to “Support Local, Shop Local”!

The City of Escondido adopted a Business Recovery Strategy in May, which includes a toolkit to support businesses City-wide to operate outdoors, on sidewalks, and in parking areas in order to respond to COVID-19 restrictions. In August, the City continued the existing measures and adopted new measures to support local organizations to operate in City parks and created a framework of flexibility for the City and businesses to adapt to the updated Public Health Orders. The toolkit is essential in supporting our local business community to rise above and shift from surviving to thriving during the pandemic. Please keep up the great work to “Support Local, Shop Local” because dollars spent locally are reinvested in the community to support businesses and City services.
