The Holiday Season, Winter weather (and small earthquake) have arrived. As always, enjoyable times are within walking distance so bundle up and delve into the fun.

December 3rd, Friday- Street Sweeper Remember, the street sweeper is scheduled for the first Friday of every month. Move your cars off the curb to allow the sweeper to remove the accumulated debris and leaves… that will make for better street drainage when it rains.
