Hey, Clairemont Times readers!
Starting in April, tickets will go on sale for our 19th Annual Clairemont Garden Tour scheduled for May 2nd — the first Saturday in May!
This year’s tour will be enhanced with refreshments, art, music, a garden boutique, and educational demos on composting, rainwater harvesting, solar, and more. There will even be a hand-on planting activity for kids!
Tickets are $15 in advance ($12 for Seniors 55+) by purchasing online at: gardentour.clairemontonline.com. On May 1st and 2nd however, tickets will increase to $20 ($15 for Seniors 55+), and will only be available to purchase at The UPS Store in Clairemont Town Square, or their Balboa Mesa Shopping Center location. Of course, kids 12 and under are free! Get your tickets early, folks!
Also, we are still looking for extra volunteers for this year’s tour. We usually need about 30 volunteers throughout the day to assist our homeowners and patrons by providing them a memorable experience. If you’d like to help volunteer for this year’s tour, please e-mail us GardenTour@ClairemontOnline.com.
Special shout out to Coastal Solar who signed on as our flagship sponsor for this year’s Garden Tour! Other sponsors include: Big Frog, Elite Escrow, Chicago Title, the Bay Mesa Real Estate Association, Calsur Property Management, San Diego Hydroponics, Bay Park Coffee, West Coast Electric, Maker Place & Reusable Finds, and the Clairemont Hills Kiwanis. We can’t thank our sponsors enough for their generous support for the Garden Tour and the Clairemont Town Council’s community grants.
Our next Clairemont Town Council meeting will be held Thursday, April 2nd at 6:30pm. Our guest speakers will include County Treasurer Tax-Collector Dan McAllister, and the San Diego Police Officers’ Association. Also, following up on last month’s presentation on the city’s recently proposed Climate Action Plan, we may consider an endorsement of that plan. Finally, we will be voting on two Bylaw proposals, which include an update to our Council’s Code of Conduct, as well as a revision of our District Director boundaries.
As always, given that we are a membership organization, we encourage participation as a member of our Clairemont Town Council. If you haven’t already updated, renewed, or joined the Clairemont Town Council, you’re always welcome! Membership starts at $10 for Seniors, Students, and Veterans, $20 for General Membership, $30 for Non-Profits, and $50 for Businesses.

Working for you, Clairemont!
President, Clairemont Town Council
