    El Modena High School Raffle has SOUL
    Larry Cohn, the Co-Chair of the El Modena Grad Night Committee, is inviting all residents of Greater Orange to try winning a new car while supporting local efforts to help students have a safe and sane graduation night party. The El Modena High School Grad Night Committee is holding its 2nd Annual Car Raffle to raise money for this year’s Annual El Modena Grad Night Party. The raffle prize is a new 2010 Kia Soul. Tickets for a try at driving around in a new car and supporting a worthwhile cause are only $25.00 each. The drawing will be June 3, 2010.

    The El Modena Grad Night began in response to a tragic accident and over the last 20 years has provided an all night on campus safe and sober celebration for graduating seniors.

    or at 714-997-3700.

    Orange Rotary gets in touch with its inner nature
    Orange Rotary continues its long time support of EL Modena Nature Center, a 3/4 acre Southern California Heritage Garden on the campus of El Modena High School. The Orange Rotarians constructed a 185-foot fence to visually separate the garden from the adjoining baseball field and allow for additional California native plants. In successive weekends, the Orange Rotarians worked to build the new fence with metal posts and six-foot cedar boards. Visitors to the garden and students on field trips will be able to view the new plantings and learn about how native plants and shrubs can enhance a home landscape and save water.

    The El Modena Interact Club (a Rotary sponsored high school youth club) helped the Orange Rotary members with the cleanup of the fence construction area. El Modena’s Southern California Heritage Garden at the school’s Nature Center is open to visitors to tour on the first Saturday of every month between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. The entrance is on the Esplanade St. side of El Modena High School at 3920 Spring St. in Orange. The garden features California friendly and native plants and shrubs that help save water and is a great source for information anyone looking to incorporate natural water saving landscaping into a garden.

    For more information about the nature center, contact Jean Carter @
