On October 7, 2017, the Tri-City community rallied together at the Masonic Homes of California and Acacia Creek campuses for the New Haven Schools Foundation’s seventh annual Mutt Strut. This fun, family-oriented walk/run is an important fundraiser for the Foundation, which provides critical support to public schools, students, and teachers within the New Haven School District.
Community members of all ages and Masonic Homes and Acacia Creek residents enjoyed a walk through the foothills, pet vendor fair, pet adoptions, and the ever-popular Halloween costume parade and contest! This year’s festivities raised $10,000 for the Foundation’s scholarship and grant programs. Grants will be used to fund innovative classroom programs, as well as for enrichment activities, such as music, color guard, and forensics. This year, the Foundation will be starting another grant program focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
