Pomona Beautification Day is May 10, 2008
So by now, you may have read that this Saturday, May 10, 2008 from 8 a.m. to noon is Pomona Beautification Day.
I'm not sure what I can say to make you come out on the streets this Saturday, other than that this is a chance to do more than just talk. A group of us will be at Alvarado and Garey if you would like to come out. Well okay, at this point just the entire Big family will be out there. We're not early birds, but I'll try to be out there myself nearest 8 a.m. as I can do. The idea is to cover Garey Avenue from the 10 freeway to Holt. For anyone interested, please email me to give me some idea how many there will be. If anyone can donate anything besides time, like something that will look good in the ground or on a wall, that is great too. Dawn's Garden Shop is near that corner for those with extra money in their pocket.
Frank Garcia from the Chamber of Commerce, is organizing this entire event. He will supply wrist bands and will keep in touch with us by telephone. The wrist bands will get you into the Fair grounds afterwards for a big lunch and party. Frank can get us some Cal Poly students for Garey and Alvarado if need be, and materials. Anduhrew: Do you have anything planned for the south side? Do you know if the Regens and/or the landscape architecture students are already volunteering? Garrett: Likewise, are you going to do anything there on the south end of town?
Keep in mind that you can work anywhere in the City. Ren: Do you have anything planned for the downtown Second Street area? Pride: Will you be cleaning up in Garfield Park? For those who do want to work at an alternative site, call Frank Garcia beforehand to arrange to keep in touch with him that day by cell phone and to get wrist bands. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 622-1256.
If I can't convince you, perhaps our staff photographer Ren can (and yes, this marks Goddess of Pomona's rather raw debut on youtube):
