CVA Picnic
Great Fun, Great Food!



On Sunday, September 30,
about 120 new and old members
of Carmel Valley Association
gathered on a beautiful day
for the annual CVA picnic
at the CV Trail and Saddle Club.

Chef Jerome Viel served a
delicious lunch and guests
enjoyed light wines
donated by Hubert Fabre.

We were serenaded by
Rick Chelew and Nick Leahy.
Guests bid on the
silent auction items.

After lunch and music
we heard from
Supervisor Mary Adams
and then Amy Anderson
gave us an update on
Measure for Public Water Now. 
CVA has endorsed
Measure J, and board members
are doing
what they can to get out the vote.

Many people commented that
it was the best picnic ever!

Carmel Valley Association is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful community organizations in Monterey County. We are entirely volunteer, with no paid employees.

Our mission is to defend the beauty, resources and rural character of our beautiful valley. We do that by working with residents, businesses, and government.

CVA was instrumental in the adoption of the Carmel Valley Master Plan and recently settled a lawsuit with Monterey County regarding traffic measurement and capping future development on very favorable terms for our valley.

Our volunteer experts represent Carmel Valley's interest, testifying before governmental bodies concerning development, water, traffic, road signs, and other environmental issues.

We keep valley residents informed about important issues and events with our weekly email Bulletin, which is sent to over 1,000 residents, and our quarterly Newsletter, which is mailed to over 7,000 valley addresses.

Member Richard Cheatham has created a new video about our beautiful Carmel Valley and CVA's role in preserving it.
