“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.”
The 2019 Shakespeare Festival kicks off with the Bard’s fabulously charming romantic comedy, whose heroine is one of his most remarkable creations. The magical forest of Arden is the play’s famous setting, where a gallery of eccentric characters comes together to find love, fortune, redemption…and themselves. Banished from the court by her deceitful and treacherous uncle, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy, not knowing that the man she loves, also on the run, is behind the next tree. Bucolic Balboa Park is the ideal spot for Shakespeare’s enticing tale of mistaken identity, heartfelt romance, and the endearing fumbles and foibles of love.

YCSD Annual Summer Send-Off Picnic
Come join the Yale Club of San Diego at Presidio Park in Mission Hills as we host a picnic for Yale’s Class of 2023. Feast on champagne, cold chicken and caviar (well, maybe not all of those things), but definitely partake of the grilled food and company of Yalies old and new. This is also a great opportunity for students and parents to meet each other, talk to alumni, and embrace the Bulldog spirit.
Cost is free for students and family, $10 for alumni and their guests.
Please note on the below map that the picnic site is at the very top of the hill past the actual Presidio. Look for Yale themed banners.
Come join the Yale Club of San Diego for another community day of service opportunity. This time we partner with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Kearney Mesa.

- Unloading trucks
- Furniture repair and refurbishing
- Helping with donation pickups
- Pricing inventory
- Organizing the ReStore and the warehouse

Please register using the Yale-specific link for the limited number of volunteer spots available. This link helps ensure we have committed volunteers and properly records volunteer hours. The minimum age to volunteer in the ReStore is 14. Minors volunteering as part of a group must be accompanied by a chaperone (1 chaperone per 5 minors).
Everyone must wear close toed shoes and comfortable work clothes that they would not mind getting dirty. Tools and safety supplies will be available. Instruction and safety training will be presented by a member of the ReStore staff.
The hands and hearts of our volunteers make home ownership dreams within reach for hard working families. We cannot thank you enough for your support of this mission.
