For the first time ever, Canyon is hosting a Color Guard competition on Sunday, March 10th. Winter Guard is the competitive Color Guard circuit that performs well beyond ‘marching band season,’ and this event is sponsored by the Winter Guard Association of Southern California (WGASC). There are 38 schools competing including five junior high/middle schools. This is an exciting first for the CHS music program, with schools participating from all over the southland including Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Click here to see the scheduled lineup of schools and their performance times. Parent and student volunteers will be out in full force, helping with concessions, ticket sales, hospitality center, runners for the judges and crowd management, just to name a few functions of mounting an event of this magnitude.
There is a morning session with the first performance at 11:00am and awards at 1:45pm; the afternoon session’s first performance is at 2:30pm with awards at 6:00pm. For fans of Canyon High’s Color Guard team, CHS performs at 5:04pm. There will be food concessions and vendors available. Please join us! The public is invited and encouraged to experience Canyon High’s first Winter Guard contest. Tickets are $8 and children under 5-years-old are free.

Join us for the Showcase Concert on Friday, March 15th at 6:00pm. The Annual Showcase Concert features all the instrumental and Color Guard performing units from Canyon High School and El Rancho Charter School. Our objective is to showcase (in one concert) the musical talent of our Anaheim Hills community elementary school, middle school and high school. A secondary objective is to get the elementary school and middle school students and parents excited about continuing on in their music studies in middle school and high school by demonstrating how much fun it can be. This event is free; the show will begin in the CHS cafeteria and move to the gym to view the marching performances, including Color Guard, Drumline and the combined El Rancho & CHS bands in a marching exhibition plus the ever-popular drill down. In a drill-down event, complex marching commands are given fast and faster, and the last student standing wins.
Join us Saturday, January 26th for Canyon High School’s Indoor Spectacular, featuring CHS’s Marching Band and Color Guard presenting an indoor version of their “Heroes and Villains” field show, as well as Winter competition performances by Color Guard and Drumline. Admission is free with donations gladly accepted. The Indoor Spectacular takes place in the CHS Gymnasium and consists of:
An in-the-gym performance of our “Heroes and Villains” field show
Drumline’s work-in-progress winter competition show
El Rancho Charter School flags class performance
Color Guard’s work-in-progress Winter Guard competition show
A full drill-down with all members of the GWR and any alumni, family, friends and community members that would like to participate for valuable prizes. Well, maybe not that valuable but definitely worth the price of admission*!

The greenest way to recyucle your holiday tree is to cut it up and place it inside your brown yard waste container. Flocked trees cannot be recycled and must be either cut up and placed in your black trash container or removed as a bulky item. By eliminating the need for additional collection trucks your tree is recycled while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving natural resources.
Take advantage of the Free Holiday Tree Collection Program by placing your tree on the ground next to your collection containters on service day during the two week period beginning Wednesday, December 26, 2012 through Tuesday, January 8, 2013. Anaheim residents who live in multi-family dwellings should check with their property management company to see if special provisions have been made to collect holiday trees. If no provisions have been made, residents may place their tree next to the bin enclosures. All trees more than six feet tall must be cut in half to be eligible for this special collection. Do not place trees inside or in front of containers or enclosures. The following options are available for tree disposal after Wednesday, January 9, 2013:
Cut your tree into small pieces to fit in your brown yard waste container; or
Schedule a bulky item collection by contacting Republic Services Customer Serive at 714 238-2444 or byy entering an Online Service Request at www.anaheimdisposal.net.
If you’ve ever watched Antiques Roadshow or the popular American Pickers, you know that the rarest of treasures are often discovered in the most unlikely places. And sometimes if you’re lucky, they can be found in your own backyard . . . or your neighbor’s at least.
More than 30 homeowners in the communities of Anaheim Hills, Orange and Villa Park are participating in a Garage Sale Event, which is being orchestrated by Seven Gables Real Estate this Saturday, October 27th starting at 7:00 a.m. So instead of scouring the country’s junkyards in search of furniture, collectibles and other rare finds, why not venture into several of OC’s finest neighborhoods for bargains you won’t find anywhere else?
Yard sale fanatics also known as “yardies” are certain to show up early for advertised events such as this one, so be sure to plan ahead. And for the best deals of the day, you may want to arrive a little later in the morning when sellers are willing to slash prices further.
Directional signs will be posted in and around each neighborhood and refreshments will be served at each host property. To access a complete list of participating addresses please click here or for a Google map of directions to each home, click here.
