Coronado Chamber Of Commerce Salute To The Military Ball Scheduled For April 18, 2020

The Coronado Chamber of Commerce’s 36th Salute to the Military Ball will be held Saturday, April 18, 2020. The theme of this year’s Ball, event which affords the citizens of Coronado the opportunity to celebrate the military, is ‘The Young & The Brave-Applauding Our Military Kids.’ The event will again be held in the Hotel Del Coronado’s Crown Room. The title sponsor of the Military Ball is Hilton Worldwide, with the Hotel Del Coronado also serving as a sponsor.Serving for the fifth year as either Chairman or Co-Chairman of the Military Ball is Mike Woiwode, who discussed the recent history of the black-tie event. “We honored Vietnam Veterans two years ago and that resonated with the community. I would say we have gotten better connected with the community each of the last two years, with more community members attending. Some came due to their Veteran status and some came as sponsors. We like that trend and hope we can do more of that. Coronado is honoring the military and the more local participation we have, the better. We are anticipating hosting 100 military couples and in addition, we are hoping to host the spouses of some deployed military. One of our sponsors, Bob and Gail Barden, sponsored a table for themselves, one table for the Coronado Island Film Festival and one table for the spouses of the deployed. And they are doing that again this year. That helps us out a lot.”

Enjoy A Visit To MooTime, It's Always Sure To Put A Smile On Your Face
Updated: January 13, 2020 - 10:46 am

Why does just the thought of ice cream bring a smile and give us a happy feeling? Is it the sugar high or just that delicious smooth and cool taste - or both?

Milk, cream and sugar and eggs are something everybody likes, and then if you add a favorite flavor to the mix, everything gets even better. Some of us have made ice cream at home with some success -and even though that’s a fun experience, it can be better not to have to do any work and just enjoy an ice cream. Over the years our family, like many in Coronado, have gone to MooTime Creamery to enjoy an ice cream. I have tried many flavors at MooTime. I recently enjoyed my chocolate and coconut ice cream and my daughter tried something different - banana and cinnamon.

On a recent Sunday, Moo Time Creamery on Orange Avenue had a constant stream of customers. Open since 1998 MooTime has brought many smiles to ice cream lovers. Coronado kids have grown up going to MooTime and I’m sure many remember their little ones wanting to sit on the cow outside for a photo.

Scott Aurich And Caroline Haines Named 2019 Realtors Of The Year
Updated: January 09, 2020 - 1:01 pm

The Coronado Real Estate Association, an organization with 180 members, recently named Scott Aurich of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty and Caroline Haines of Coldwell Banker West Realty their Co-Realtors of the Year for 2019. The plaque reads, ‘In recognition of your cooperation, ethics, integrity, community service and service to this association and the entire real estate industry.’

Haines, who also won the award in 2013 and 2015, was pleasantly surprised by the honor, and said what winning again in 2019 with Aurich as the co-winner meant to her. “To be voted an award by your peers is the biggest compliment anybody could have. I love what I do, so it’s not hard. I will say to be acknowledged makes you feel very good and it’s recognition that you worked hard. I do the best I can every day. Winning this with Scott has put a whole different perspective on the award. He’s been the No. 1 producer in Coronado and supported CREA so much. He shows up and comes to almost every Wednesday meeting, which shows there is worth to the meeting because he does come. That’s what I love about Scott. He is very thorough and responsive, and he answers his phone. It’s a compliment that I won the award with him. The way he does sell real estate, there is no chip on his shoulder, no ego involved, and we have established a very nice, respectful relationship with one another.”

If you are an antique lover or just an avid collector, The Attic on 10th Street warrants a peek. With a new direction to include more high-end antiques as well as sports memorabilia, the friendly shop is fun to wander through. The staff welcomes patrons to “graze” and ask questions about the various interesting items. The extensive vinyl collection is familiar to regular customers, but rotating the records and highlighting new ones shows off the in-depth collection Dave Seely has amassed over the years.

Coronado Boot And Shoe Repair Has Served The Community For 41 Years
Updated: January 06, 2020 - 3:36 pm

It has been 41 years since Hilda Tellefson became the owner of Coronado Boot and Shoe Repair on Orange Avenue. As a child she always loved to stop by her dad’s leather goods store in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Now in her 60s she fondly recalls how the shop had 12 men who made suede coats, hats and more. “He’d let me stay for 20 to 30 minutes. I’d get the scissors and measuring tape,” said Tellefson.

As she got older she studied chemistry and was halfway through finishing her college degree when she came to San Diego to visit her cousin. She was 21 years old and liked the warm weather that made her rheumatism disappear. One night her cousin told her they were going out. That night she met a man that would be her first husband.

Tellefson found out that a shoe repair store in Coronado was for sale and she came over to see it. She spoke to the owner who was a native of Russia. He told her, “I want to sell it but I don’t know when.” Tellefson who was eager to learn the business told him she would work for free.

“I came in and helped clean, all the time thinking I could do this job better than him,” she recalled. After three months the owner finally sold the business to Tellefson.
