President's Letter--August 2020
Dear Olivenhain Neighbors,
Thank you to James Lee for the wonderful pictures of the OTC 4th of July Parade
Arts and Crafts Fair Postponed
We are sadly going to have to postpone the November 2020 Arts and Crafts Fair. Mary Jo Nortman, chairperson of the fair, is hoping to re-schedule this wonderful event in the Spring. We will keep the OTC updated as we learn more.
Escondido Creek Conservatory
In 1991, The Escondido Creek Conservancy (Conservancy) incorporated as a nonprofit with a mission to preserve and protect the Escondido Creek watershed, which includes portions of the Olivenhain and Rancho Santa Fe communities. Fundamental to the Conservancy’s mission is maintaining the diversity and wonder of life on Earth.
They would love to have you join on a nature walk, or help on a special project, like the update of their strategic plan, which will begin later this year. Email for more info at [email protected], if you’d like to join the mailing list, or have questions about their work.
Ovation Theatre Films Show Promo at the Meeting Hall
Neighbor Jane Bell wrote to the OTC with thanks for the outdoor use of the Meeting Hall:
Thank you all for your help in getting our local theatre group on to the Meeting Hall property to do some filming. Attached is a soon to be released promotion video that focuses on “All Shook Up”, that was to be our summer production, and will now be on stage in January 2021. We took on the challenges of holding rehearsals in our current environment and keeping our young actors engaged and involved while they were isolated at home. They loved getting outside and showing us what they learned!

Newsletters and Other OTC Email Communications Going to Spam
We have started to compose and distribute the OTC newsletters and other email communications using a new email marketing service provider. Unfortunately, some OTC emails have been delivered to OTC members' spam folder. If this has happened to you, the easy fix is to add our email address into your address book, and to mark OTC emails as "not spam" and move them to your inbox.
In addition, please add this email address: [email protected]
to your address book as an approved sender.
We are still working on this problem with our email marketing service provider and appreciate your patience! Please let your neighbors or fellow OTC members know if they report problems as well. If you have any questions, please email Mark Mayer at [email protected]

OTC Facebook Page
If you are interested in getting information and updates on Facebook from the Olivenhain Town council, please "like" and "follow" our new Facebook page:
Olivenhain is a unique and history rich community. We are fortunate to have the Meeting Hall and grounds for our community events. The colonists had the foresight to set this area aside for the community. If only they know, it would remain the social gathering place in Olivenhain for more than 120 years. The Olivenhain Town Council now manages the grounds and buildings, but in the spirit of the colonists, it belongs to you, the community. When you join the Olivenhain Town Council, it isn’t just a membership; you are helping to preserve and perpetuate our unique heritage. Thank you for your membership and please tell a neighbor and encourage them to also join the Olivenhain Town Council. That can be done on the OTC website: www.olivenhain.org/membership
