SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The San Juan Capistrano Cultural Heritage Commission recently held a commemoration on Los Rios Street on May 7 to celebrate local history—and, as part of the event, a student essay contest.
The contest winners were Madison Lino, Holland Davis, and Emily Ke. Mayor Pro Tem Howard Hart and Commissioner Lorie Porter were the judges. The contest received 35 total submissions.
