From renovating the Fletcher Cove Community Center to preserving the San Elijo Lagoon, the Civic and Historical Society of Solana Beach has helped better the community for decades. To raise money for various projects, the society hosts its Holiday Boutique every year. The 60th annual event took place this year on Nov. 9 at La Colonia Community Center. Funds raised this year will go toward scholarships for local students.
The Holiday Boutique featured mostly homemade items, including holiday decorations, jewelry and accessories, gifts, and other arts and crafts. Written by Solana Beach historian Jim Nelson, two historical books on the city were also available. Members also sold baked goods, and the Coffee Café in the patio area served free coffee.
