Egg-Citement is Back in Costa Mesa for Easter

Spring is here and that calls for some Egg-Citement! Our annual Easter celebration for Costa Mesa will take place on Saturday, April 3 over at Tanager Park. This is the perfect event for the whole family to enjoy. The main activity is the Easter egg hunt that starts at 10am. There’s also going to be train rides, pony rides, a petting zoo, and face painting. We’re also thrilled that the Estancia High School Cheer Squad will be in attendance to add spirit and sell refreshments. And don’t miss a special appearance from the guest of honor – the Easter Bunny!

We love being a part of Costa Mesa and hosting fun events for the community is something Torelli Realty looks forward to presenting year after year. This is also a wonderful opportunity to support our local schools and Boosters. Come on out and join your neighbors in the fun – we hope to see you there!

Costa Mesa Pop Warner Sign Up Event on Sat., April 17

Costa Mesa is a community where youth recreational programs are a priority.  We’ve blogged before about some of the programs at Estancia High School, Costa Mesa High School, and through the Costa Mesa Community Athletic Foundation. Here’s another great program: Costa Mesa Pop Warner (CMPW), a youth football league and youth cheerleading squad for boys & girls ages 5-15. The team, called the Costa Mesa Eagles, is holding an Open House/Registration/Preliminary Weigh-In event on Saturday, April 17, 2010.  Check out the Costa Mesa Pop Warner Facebook page for more information.

For years CMPW has made it a mission to serve as the benchmark for Southern California youth football and cheer programs.  Under the direction of  Steve Mensinger, President of the Estancia Sports Booster Club, the emphasis of the program is not just on smart coaching. An orderly administration and professional structure helps keep the CMPW ahead of other teams and sets a good example for the kids.

Costa Mesa Pop Warner is a great opportunity for our youth to have fun, understand teamwork, accept responsibility, and again – HAVE FUN!  And according to the professional journal Athletic Insight, youth sports offer additional benefits like improved motor skills and increased self-esteem. CMPW also supports “no work, no play” so students must perform adequately in the classroom or they can’t play.  Education first!  Our youth are so fortunate to have recreational opportunities such as these available to them – go Eagles!

An update on the Estancia High School E-Cart

It’s been a couple of months since we blogged about the E-cart that Torelli Realty provided for Costa Mesa’s Estancia High School sports program.  Just last week the Estancia High School Football Boosters honored Valerie Torelli and Torelli Realty during a halftime ceremony at Jim Scott Stadium   As a business leader in Costa Mesa, we are so pleased to be able to contribute to our local schools and thrilled to know that the cart is making an impact.  Estancia High School has been using the 8-person cart to help the trainers and coaches as well as to transport the fans during home games.  Go Eagles!

Torelli Realty Sponsors Golf Cart for Estancia High School Football Team

As a Costa Mesa real estate professional, I keep track of what’s going on with our local schools.  That’s why an article in the August 25 edition of The Orange County Register really struck a chord with me: “Estancia High Unveils Football Training Area.”  When I read about the amazing new football facilities at Estancia High, I was deeply moved.  The schools in Costa Mesa are an integral part of our community and I’m pleased to see people working together to help our students and take pride in our town.

Earlier this year, the football players at Estancia High worked out in a building that was on its last legs.  In fact, when Steve Mensinger (the president of the Estancia Sports Boosters) first saw it, he immediately recognized the need to fix it up, or at least give it a paint job!  That paint job snowballed into a $100,000 remodel that was funded by Costa Mesa United (a nonprofit that assists the city with youth sports programs) and the Estancia Sports Boosters.  The construction was done in only 35 days, which truly reflects that spirit and determination of so many great people.

Now the Estancia High football team has a workout area they can be proud to call their own.  There’s a new weightlifting area with a tarp canopy to shield the sun, a media room, offices for the coaches, security, air conditioning and more.  Plus there’s a huge yellow and red ‘E’ painted on the asphalt to represent their team, the Eagles.

Costa Mesa is home to so many and our children deserve to have decent school facilities. Due to this project there are 135 Estancia football team players who are benefiting from the effort.  What’s more, the community as a whole prospers because it shows that we respect ourselves, our youth, and our institutions. Head coach Mike Bargas explained in the article that the kids deserved something like this, and that sentiment stayed with me.

This article compelled me to help out as well.  Torelli Realty contributed money to purchase a golf cart that will assist with the sports program. Steve Mensinger said, “The E-Cart (E for Estancia Eagles) is an 8-passenger vehicle for trainers, coaches, and for shuttling fans to the stadium.  Estancia was fortunate to have Valerie Torelli and Torelli Realty sponsor the cart and we are all grateful for it.”

It’s so great to see everybody coming together and connecting to help provide for our community.  I’m ready to see how Estancia High’s football team does this season – Go Eagles!
