Fall festivities support schools

Two local elementary schools are bringing fall festivities to Scripps Ranch. Both Ellen Browning Scripps and Dingeman Elementary schools are hosting fall themed events for the local community to support their schools.

EBS Fall Family Festival
The Ellen Browning Scripps (EBS) Fall Family Festival will be held on Oct. 25 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the school. Danyelle Comer, EBS ABF president, said this year’s events will include a cupcake walk, games of chance, a pumpkin carving contest and a variety of local food vendors. Comer said families can further support the school by participating in the Silent Auction. She also explained that the event will boast new events this year including game booths sponsored by each grade level, in addition to a new game that is likely to be a hit with the kids.

“To add to the fun, our carnival chairs built a life-sized Candy Land, which will be run in partnership with the American Heart Association who is providing prizes for the game. And to promote heart health, we’ve added ‘healthful’ tips for the kids throughout the game,” Comer said.

Attending the festival is free for all families. Twenty-five game and bake sale tickets can be purchased for $20, a raffle ticket for $5, or 10 game boards for $10 at the festival.

The EBS Fall Festival proceeds will go to support programs such as Everyone’s A Reader, Fine Artists, grade-appropriate Science Nights, International Night and Character Education. Everyone is encouraged to come in costumes appropriate for elementary aged children. For more information on the Fall Festival, visit

  1. We provide the highest quality home remodeling services, including kitchen and bath remodeling and also home additions, in the area. In addition to our productive team, Kitchen Remodel Aurora is staffed with professionals equipped with the most up-to-date equipment and advanced technology to complete every remodeling project. When you deal with Aurora, you can be assured that we possess the following : I’ve used Southern Maine Remodeling for 2 bathrooms and a kitchen renovation. The entire team is very professional from quote to finish. They treated my home like it was their own – the job site was cleaned at the end of every day. Never has the old adage, “The kitchen is the heart of home,” been truer. What was once a utilitarian space kept hidden way behind a firmly closed door has morphed into the space where we spend time together as a family and gather with friends for relaxed evenings at home. Bringing your kitchen remodel from dream to reality is a multi-step process requiring contractors that you trust to bring the project to completion. You need a team with years of experience and knowledge to handle the sudden developments that can come up during the course of the remodel. Suburban Marble & Granite can help make your countertop and backsplash remodel go as smoothly as possible.  To ensure a symmetrical layout from end-to-end, measure and mark the center point of each area being tiled.  Before you apply mastic and begin tiling, do a dry run by lining up the edge of one tile with the center mark.  Next, place tiles side by side to determine how many tiles will be needed and the width of the end pieces.  Include spacers between each tile. Check out your local salvage yard for materials! I found a beautiful cast iron sink for just $25, hundreds less than it would have cost new. I also bought many of the tools used in this project (wet tile saw, circular saw) on Craigslist to save money. Keeping the existing cabinets and working with the original layout also saves lots of money and hassle. Lastly, I mixed more expensive cabinet hardware from Rejuvenation with a budget friendly option from Home Depot to further stretch my dollar.
