Head's Up Thru Dec. 22: Worthwhile Events This Week

A look at local activities and opportunities that could be of interest to Lake Forest-area residents.

By Martin Henderson

A look at what's going down and coming up for Lake Forest and residents of the surrounding area. 

• Several things are up for discussion at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, but the most interesting decision to be made might be that of mayor. Will his colleagues appoint Scott Voigts to a second consecutive term, will they endorse Mayor Pro Tem Kathryn McCullough to the position, or will they choose Dwight Robinson or Adam Nick, who were elected in 2012. The unlikely choice: David Bass, who will participate in his first meeting as the newly appointed successor to Peter Herzog. Could be interesting. The meeting begins Tuesday, 7 p.m., at City Hall.

• There is a meeting of the Parks and Recreation Commission on Thursday, 6:30 p.m., at City Hall. It will discuss proposed league fees for adult softball, and the healthy cities initiative. 

• Is attention deficit disorder a part of your life. The first holiday social for Orange County CHADD—Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders—is today (Monday) in Orange. Click here for more details

• If you don't mind going outside Lake Forest to have someone read stories to your kids, Story Time with Santa is on Thursday at Renaissance ClubSport from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Breakfast with Santa is Saturday morning. Click here for details and costs

• Looking for musical entertainment this week and want to make a run to the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, you can catch Gary Ho Ho Hoey ($20) on Friday, or Berlin featuring Terri Nunn ($25) on Saturday. Obviously, it's a show that will take your breath away, right? 

• Want to help the Orange County Transportation Authority get a handle on traffic and concerns? Take the online questionnaire on the OCTA website.

• It has been pretty chilly lately, but the forecast calls for snow at Saddleback Church following Christmas services Saturday through Dec. 24 on the Lake Forest campus. Check here to find out about the Snow Zone and other activities leading up to Christmas. 

• The high school football season comes to a close on Saturday when Corona del Mar plays for the Division III State Bowl Championship, and St. John Bosco plays for the Open Bowl Championship. CdM begins at noon, and Bosco takes on powerful Concord De La Salle at 8 p.m. at the StubHub Center, which was previously the Home Depot Center, in Carson.
