Windermere Hosts Spirit of the 4th VIP Reception

Windermere Homes & Estates’ Rancho Bernardo location is again hosting the Spirit of the 4th VIP Reception. Windermere has had the honor of hosting before, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to do this again. Though the Reception is just one event in a day full of celebrations, we relish the chance to invite the Freedom Club into our Home.

Owner Rich Johnson says, “We love the community of Rancho Bernardo, and are proud to have the opportunity to participate on this most special day.”

A festive tradition in Rancho Bernardo is the annual VIP Reception, which offers an opportunity for residents to socialize with elected officials, leaders of service organizations, leaders in the business community, and guests in the military.

It is open to all residents who become members of the Freedom Club, and is usually attended by local celebrities, parade dignitaries, and city, county, and state officials, and our congressional representative. All of these dignitaries will be in the parade.


Membership in the Spirit of the Fourth is comprised of the Freedom Club, patriotic residents who support the Spirit of the Fourth through their annual donation.  Funds generated from Freedom Club membership are used to defray the expense of staging the Independence Day Celebration. The Spirit of the Fourth is a 501 (c) (3) organization so memberships are tax deductible.  To join the Freedom Club, please print and complete this form and mail to Spirit of the Fourth, Inc., P.O. Box 270736, San Diego, CA 92198.  Freedom Club membership begins at $150.
