They now meet at the Valley Baptist Church, 30053 Miller Rd., on the second Tuesday of each month at 10 am. The public is always welcome.
The district has a pile of free fill dirt for the taking. Talk to Jeff Haack, superintendent at the Cemetery (28953 Miller Road) at 760- 749-1186 Mon-Fri, 9 a.m.-noon.
Kurtz tells me the district wishes their grass was greener, but that like everyone else, they have to comply with the restrictions on water usage.
