YourVoteCounts Dear  ,
The Nov. 6 election -- just a few days away -- will be a turning point for the nation, the state, and our college district. Let me encourage each of you to send in your absentee ballots  or go to the polls Nov. 6 to make sure your voice is heard on the many important decisions facing our community and country. As we remind our students: it is our civic responsibility to participate in the democratic process in our great country. 
If you are not registered to vote, you can do so online. But, to vote in the Nov. 6 election, you must register now. October 22 -- TODAY -- is the deadline. 
For more information about Proposition V, the college district's bond measure to renovate aging facilities, modernize outdated technology and create veteran's resource centers at the Grossmont and Cuyamaca campuses, please go to the district website 
In many ways, the future of the college district will be determined by voters in this election. But whatever the voters decide, I know we will still have talented students and dedicated employees who provide a variety of cultural events for East County. Enjoy!

My Three Angels, a play by Sam and Bella Spewack, will be performed Nov. 29 through Dec. 7 at Grossmont College.


In French Guiana at the turn of the 20th century, three convicts on work release find themselves helping the Ducotel family with more than their roof maintenance. With an evil-minded cousin trying to take over the family business and a cold-blooded newphew set on jilting his fiancÚ for an heiress, the family is in need of some divine intervention. The criminals with hearts of gold step in to set matters right and, in doing so, they redeem themselves as real-life angels.


The play runs Nov. 29, 30, Dec. 1, 6, 7, and 8 at 7:30 p.m., and on Dec. 1 and 8 at 2 p.m. The box office opens two weeks prior to every production. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and one hour prior to all performances. Call 619-644-7234 for further information.
