I still don’t have a land line (long story) and the debris, tree trunks and fallen branches are still on almost every Highland Park block, though much clean up has been made. Take a look at some of Highland Park Heights photos of the Wind disaster of Dec. 2011!

A small but sturdy crew of volunteers weathered high temps on Saturday to complete another successful cleanup off Ave. 50 at Milo Terrace. The abandoned corner lot, a commercial building that has been on the market for a couple of years, had wildly overgrown weeds, hedges and bougainvilleas. Intensive guru Phil, Elizabeth, Maria, Patria and Meredith worked from 8 to 11 AM cutting, raking and sweeping and were joined by Field Rep. Liberty Mesa from Councilman Jose Huizar’s office and we recruited Rev. Dan from the neighborhood church on the corner. A few neighbors lent us their green bins and four were filled. HP90042 thanks Bussard’s All Pro Automotive Center (on York) for again contributing coffee, pastries and water (and manpower) to our ongoing effort to beautify our Highland Park neighborhood.
Who is ready to volunteer with us in September and October to help cleanup the neighborhood and make a difference? We have something a little different going in September (details tba). Sign up and let us know you’re able and willing. Send an email to aldamaheights [at] gmail [dot] com to be on our action event list or leave a comment below.
Let’s gear up for a vibrant and productive Fall 2010 and continue the momentum!
After a very successful second Intensive, we’re ready for more. Our next Early Bird Intensive with Phil is set for Saturday, August 21 at 8:00 AM. Meet us at the corner of Ave. 50 and Milo Terrace to deep clean sidewalks and parkways, pick up trash, give a little landscape maintenance and tender loving care to some neglected areas of Highland Park. Meet a neighbor, give a little time to your community, and have some fun!
