Meetings
The College View Estates Association (CVEA) meets quarterly at a member’s home. For meeting locations, email CVEApresident@gmail.com.

Several CVEA members also serve on the College Area Community Council and Planning Boards (CACC & CACPB), a city recognized board representing the larger College Area that meets on the second Wednesday of each month at the College-Rolando Library. For more information, go to http://collegearea.org/cacc/.

Block Party
Our annual Block Party, usually held in June, brings families and friends together for conversation and activities such as a chili cook-off, dessert bake-off, bounce house, climbing wall, tot lot, water balloon toss, grill for hot dogs and hamburgers, as well as music and prizes. The block party tradition began in 2000.

Progressive Dinner
Our annual autumn Progressive Dinner provides neighbors the opportunity to socialize with each other as a large group for the appetizer and dessert course, while the main course is enjoyed in more intimate groups in neighbors' homes. The Progressive Dinner celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2009.

First Friday
Permanent residents of the CVE community gather once a month (on the First Friday of each month). The social gathering is informal and focuses on community and friendship, rather than food. For information about the First Friday location please email nancyksd@cox.net

Tree Planting
The Beautification Committee assists neighbors with selecting and planting trees in their parkways. Over 150 new parkway trees have been planted in CVEA.

Donations
CVEA regularly makes donations to community organizations such as local schools, libraries, the San Diego Police Department Foundation and the Retired Seniors Volunteer Patrol (RSVP).

Home Tours
College View Estates has been recognized for its beautiful and interesting homes by being featured on home tours in 2003, 2006, and 2011. The annual College Area Home Tours are organized by the College Neighborhoods Foundation.

Garage Sale
From time to time CVEA helps organize a community-wide garage sale.
