Pomona Beautification Day

Save the Date: This year's Pomona Beautification Day is Saturday, May 9. The work part of the day (8:00 AM - 12:00 PM) will be followed by a free BBQ at the Fairplex for participants (12:00-3:00 PM). Wristbands for the BBQ will be distributed at registration sites the morning of the event. Food will be served 12:30-2:30 PM. Many thanks to Jim Henwood, Scott Kelly, and all the folks at the Fairplex for underwriting and hosting this event.

We are hoping to get every Neighborhood Watch Group to participate and be registration sites. Groups are encouraged to select their own worksites. In the past groups have cleaned streets, alleys, and vacant lots. One group created a community garden at a local school. Another idea might be to help a senior citizen in your neighborhoods spruce up their house or yard.

We are also looking for local entertainment for the afternoon, especially young people.

For futher information or to register your group email: (Lincoln Ave. Neighborhood Watch/North Pomona Weed and Seed/South Pomona Weed and Seed/Active Community Engagement Subcommittee of the Youth and Family Master Plan).

Other participants include: Pomona Chamber of Commerce, Fairplex, Pomona Valley Boys and Girls Club, Pomona YMCA, Hands On Inland Empire, the City of Pomona, Pomona Unified School District, Pomona Youth and Family Master Plan Community Board

  1. Thanks for the post, Pastor Rick. Do you happen to know if it is possible to do beautification projects for foreclosure properties? For example, could we help tidy yards or anything like that?
