Grossmont Healthcare District supporting cerebral palsy program

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports various health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County region, has announced a $11,000 grant to the United Cerebral Palsy Association of San Diego County. The grant will support UCP’s “Assistive Technology Network” equipment loan program.
UCP said its equipment loan program will benefit more than 250 East County residents with disabilities, including professionals and educators who assist people with disabilities. The program features assessments for prescribing the correct equipment, individual training, informational and referrals and lending to school personnel and private speech pathologists. Officials report that loan programs significantly increase success of the use of state-of-the-art assistive technology equipment for people with disabilities.
