Angels approve donations, install new officers

FALLBROOK – A total of $8,300 was donated to projects benefiting the community at the June meeting of the board of the directors of the Angel Society of Fallbrook, a local philanthropic organization.

The board approved $5,000 in funds to help with the costs of the student planting and education programs at Heller’s Bend and Los Jilgueros, two popular preserves maintained by volunteers of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy. Last year, some 200 elementary school students helped establish native species on these preserves while learning about riparian, oak woodlands and coastal sage habitats.

A total of $3,000 was awarded to Save Our Forest to help maintain the South Mission Road portion of the Treescape Project. The goal of this group is to provide for a more pedestrian-friendly community and to create inviting entry ways into the community.

Adam Holzer, an Eagle Scout candidate of Troop 725, also received $300 in funds to help with the cost of his project to construct three raised-planter beds at the Community Gardens, which is sponsored by the Mission Resource Conservation District.

In other business, the board installed new officers for the 2010-11 fiscal year. Jean Dooley was nominated as second vice president of philanthropy, while Billie Foli will serve as treasurer, and Marilyn Miller is the new recording secretary.

Other officers will continue for another year in their current positions: Gloria Seelye, president; Kathryn Koptitzke, first vice president; Cathy Jones, third vice president; Barbara Loehnert, Angel Shop chair; Judy Messina, building committee chair, and Virgina Stephens, president ex-officio & parliamentarian.

The Angels also welcomed to the board two new members: Kathy Gausepohl and Gina Palculich.
