Special needs children, their parents, and grandparents, approximately 52 people in all, attended the April Bunny Hop. Twenty Elks and other volunteers assisted in food service needs, decorations, and fun activities. In total, approximately 100 people attended this event. A DJ was present to provide music and entertainment. Food was provided by the Lodge to all, with cakes donated by Nothing But Bundts bakery in Brea. The Lodge has an active outreach program for these children in the community, offering activities throughout the year for the entire family.

Beechwood is the 2023 FSD Street Hockey Champion

Beechwood School bagged the gold in the 2023 Fullerton School District’s (FSD) street hockey tournament for 4th and 5th graders. Raymond Elementary came in second, while Laguna Road Elementary trailed in third place.

The annual tournament is funded by the Anaheim Ducks’ S.C.O.R.E program (Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation & Education), a free program to promote physical fitness and hockey.

While Beechwood came out victorious for another trophy year, Anaheim Duck’s beloved mascot, “Wild Wing,” was even more triumphant, celebrating the incredible display of sportsmanship by all participating teams from seventeen schools in the district. Wild Wings gladly obliged everyone by posing for photos and signing fans’ shirts.


Observer Community Photo Challenge:

Get to know your parks

Thank you for the new lights at the park and handball courts. On the left, Andrew Stirdivant with Miguel on the right, and the Sunday morning handball players in the background. Young, old, and everything in between, we all have a common ground, and that’s the love for the game. Independence Park (aka” Valencia” because on the handball side of town, parks are referred to by street name) is located at 801 West Valencia Dr, Fullerton.
