The Welcome Club of Scripps Ranch always has plenty going on, but this past holiday season was busier than ever with a schedule packed full of fun and festive events. The December general meeting featured guest speaker Tim Ney representing the San Diego Armed Services YMCA Holiday Program, which provides new toys to children in military families. The Welcome Club supports the holiday program every year, and this year was proud to give several large bags of toy donations along with a monetary donation of nearly $1,500. The club also enjoyed food, beverages, and music at a Dinner Dance at the Catamaran Hotel, including the music of DJ Yo Rider. All women in the community are welcome to join the club, regardless of whether they’re new to the area or longtime residents. As Founder Becky McDonald shared, “We’re a very active club, we’re very friendly, and we love getting new members!” See for yourself at
