The Junior Class Passing Of The Torch At Mountain Farms Realty Kaaren Terry is now the proud owner of Mountain Farms Realty. She has been an agent with Mountain Farms for the past three years developing an extensive property management business, and also doing sales. Kaaren and her husband Tom have been residents in Julian since 1999. Kaaren met Janet Gastil on a hike and soon was offered a position at Mountain Farms. This is when she decided to stop selling houses in San Diego and plant herself full time in the town she loves. Since Janet Gastil is spending most of the week in the big city she decided it was a good time to pass the torch to someone she has worked with and who also loves Mountain Farms Realty. Janet will continue to have her license with Mountain Farms as a broker/associate, along with Halley Ann & Larry Failer, associates. Mountain Farms Realty has been in the same location on Main Street since 1993, and thanks to Janet Gastil the business is celebrating 30 years of service to the community. The agents, with 68 years of collective experience promise to continue to give the same friendly, professional, ethical service to their clients; exactly the way Janet has done these past 30 years. Kaaren feels it is such an honor to have the opportunity to continue the profession she loves in the red house with her little dog Kelly, who has now 'been promoted to official greeter. Mountain Farms Realty invites Julian to drop by and see all the holiday decorations in the front yard throughout the year. The historic red schoolhouse is the perfect place to show everyone passing by that we love Julian and want to share our spirit with them. Julian isn't just a town... it's a way of life. i Kaaren Terry and the office's "official greeter" Kelly The Julian News 3 Volcan Mountain Preserve Foundation Presents The 2010 Auction And Dinner Dance An extraordinary evening is coming again to our lovely back country!

Check back for future stories in The Julian News to find out when your child's age group will have tryouts.

Again this year we will have a "Cap Night", where teams will be announced and team caps distributed, as well as the traditional baked goods auction/fundraiser. Cap Night hasn't been scheduled yet, but will happen sometime between February 27 and the first day of practice, March 7. Opening Day, again at Jess Martin Park, along with team and individual pictures, will happen March 20, with full games in each of the divisions.

Both Janice and Blake are great songwriters, and their harmonies on their original songs and with the audience joining in on popular covers, will make for and exciting evening.
