You’re invited to our Holiday Open House to celebrate the holiday season and tour our newly renovated headquarters! This open house is also where we have invited “adopters” participating in our Holiday Adopt-a-Family program to drop off the gifts they purchased for the Interfaith clients and families they so generously “adopted” this year.
Go wild this holiday season at the San Diego Zoo’s annual celebration, Jungle Bells presented by California Coast Credit Union. The holiday festivities start Dec. 8, 2017, and run through Jan. 1, 2018. Jungle Bells guests will be treated to seasonal decorations, animal experiences, costumed characters, live entertainment and more.
The Zoo will be aglow with holiday cheer and activities to keep the whole family jolly. Guests can watch as animals enjoy unique enrichment treats, and guests can sample treats of their own offered at many of the Zoo’s restaurants and food stands. Don’t miss out on holiday shopping at the Zoo’s retail locations, or the holiday happy hour at Albert’s Restaurant—Happy Holidays Happens—with discounted drinks and appetizers available from 3 to 5 p.m. each day of Jungle Bells.
Jungle Bells activities and attractions are free with Zoo admission or membership. Parking is free.
Courtly Noyse will perform a festive holiday concert on Sunday, December 10, at 2:30 PM at the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center in the “Pleasure of Your Company” music series sponsored by the Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library. Garbed in period costume, this lively ensemble will play a variety of period instruments and may also cast their instruments aside at the drop of a (Tudor) hat and burst into six-part vocal harmony. Experience their trademark blend of humor, imagination and versatility as you enjoy a delightful afternoon of Renaissance holiday music. Ensemble members include John Cassaboom, Laury Flora, Penny Hawkins, Steve Hendricks, Vickie Jenkins, Jay Saks, and Sandra Shram.
There is no charge for the concert, although donations are appreciated. Meet the musicians and mingle with fellow music lovers at a complimentary post-concert reception.
