The failure of Proposition Q does not mean Ramona does not support schools or children, Greg Chick told a roomful of people at Ramona Elementary School’s Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser in the school’s multipurpose room Friday evening.

“It means Q is not for Ramona by popular vote,” said Chick, one of the founding members of Friends of Ramona Unified Schools (FORUS), a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit group of volunteers formed in early 2013 after Ramona Unified School District’s 2012 $66 million bond bid failed.

Ramona voters this month rejected the district’s $40 million bond bid, with 53.58 percent voting no and 46.42 percent voting yes, unofficial election results show. To pass, the measure needed 55 percent support of those voting.

Catholic church continues 67-year-old tradition with turkey dinner Sunday

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church continues a tradition that started in 1947 when it stages its 67th Annual Turkey Dinner on Sunday, Nov. 16, from 1 to 6 p.m.

Because the congregation did not have a place to cook in 1947, the entire community pitched in and cooked the turkeys in their homes and delivered them and all the dinner trimmings where everything could be served to the public. Those were the days that Ramona staged a Turkey Festival with a parade, activities and special honors to citizens.
