Brea, CA ~ Taking the plunge in good old Brea ~ It's a municipal pool as commonly known in most communities, however in our community of Brea, it's the plunge. How many years (if any) have you ever heard of a muni pool being called a plunge? It's throw back to yester-years. In fact, this is the oldest continually operated municipal pool in all of Orange County. City Hall Park (former home of our city hall, hence the name) on Brea Blvd. and Elm St. is the home of this California classic. It was built in 1929 the same year of the great stock-market crash. And the original cost to swim for the afternoon? Ten-cents! The photo at the bottom right is two of the local beauties showing off the fountain a one-time fixture at the plunge. Today the plunge is still a place for summer fun, just take...

We recently enjoyed the giving spirit of JoJo's this week at a fund-raiser for little Katie G., a five year-old Leukemia patient. The Mom's Club of Brea organized and participated in this event on Katie's behalf. A portion of the proceeds from sales that day (lunch and dinner) went to the Katie G. family. JoJo's has been supportive of many in the community.

As expected, numbers of active listings are rising slowly as we approaching the highly demanding season of the year in housing market. Brea Ca has 170 active homes for sale and there are 37 homes under contract. People are very skeptical of this market and many buyers are staying on the sidelines to gauge the market. Namneet Dhaliwal
