The next Mira Mesa Town Council general membership meeting will be held on September 14, 2009 at the Mira Mesa library at 7p.m. Note that this is the second Monday in September since the first Monday fell on Labor Day. State Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher is scheduled to be the guest speaker. Also, our former school board representative Mitz Lee will give a presentation on her nonprofit group Alliance for Quality Education.

Make sure to mark your calendars for the Mira Mesa Street Fair that will take place Saturday, September 26 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. There will be carnival rides, games, food, music, entertainment, and lots of community businesses and non-profit organizations participating in this year’s events. Best of all, it is free to the public! Of course there are plenty of opportunities to purchase food, goods, rides and services from the vendors, so bring your wallet with you and have a great day in the sun!
The Rescue House and PETCO host an Adoption Fair the Third Saturday each month from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Mira Mesa PETCO.

October is just around the corner, and that means construction has begun on the Monster Manor taking place in the Target Shopping Center Parking Lot. Voted best Haunted House in San Diego by the Union Tribune voters, the success of the Monster Manor can be associated with the Mira Mesa Theatre Guild and their dedicated group of volunteers. Each year these talented individuals create the unique rooms and mazes that make up the Monster Manor, and they teach and train the volunteer theatrical cast that roam the halls during the month of October to the delight of thousands of patrons.
If you want to volunteer, or purchase tickets for your non-profit group through their Share the Wealth fundraiser, please use this link to the Mira Mesa Theatre Guild’s website. Although the Monster Manor is designed for ages 13 and older due to the scary nature of the event, they also run a child friendly version called Lite Frite on weekend days as a non-scary alternative that is family friendly. The theme this year is a Peter Pan themed “The Search for the Shadow. If you have little ones under 13, this is the only haunted house for them in San Diego, and it is awesome. We’ll see you under the big tent in October.
