2016 Community Meetings
I look forward to meeting you at any of these community meetings held throughout our district:
Arden Arcade Community Meeting Schedule
Carmichael Community Meeting Schedule
Fair Oaks Community Meeting Schedule
March Office Hours
I began holding “Office Hours” in 2005 and now it has become an annual tradition involving me setting up a table at various community events where residents can drop by and talk about items of interest with no appointment necessary. My first 2016 outing will be on Saturday, March 5, at the annual trout fishing derby in Howe Park, 2201 Cottage Way, sponsored by the Fulton-El Camino Recreation and Park District. My “office” will be open from 10 to 11:30 am during the angler contest to meet with residents that morning on a “first come basis.” For more information about the fishing derby, call the Park District at 927-3802 or visit www.fecrecpark.com. Later in the month I will move my “office” to Carmichael Park, 5750 Grant Avenue, for the annual Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 26. My “Office Hours” will be 9:30 to 11 am. The Egg Hunt starts at 10 am sharp rain or shine and is sponsored by the Carmichael Recreation and Park District. For more information about the egg hunt, call the Park District at 485-5322 or visit www.carmichaelpark.com.
