President’s Message – Garden Hours
With the park now closing at 5:00pm, many of you have contacted me with concerns regarding the new garden hours for the winter. I voiced your concerns to Councilwoman Mungo’s office. As a result, the Parks Department contacted us granting permission to adjust our garden hours. Our new garden hours from Nov. 1 to February 28 are 7am to 7pm. Please note that the garden may be dark during some of these hours. Use common sense to determine when it is time to leave and use extreme caution if staying late. It is not recommended to be in the garden when it is dark as we have wildlife and coyotes in the area. As a reminder, we all signed a waiver of liability during the renewals and you are gardening at your own risk.
The Chipotle Fund Raiser is fast approaching. Eat a burrito and support the LBCG . We will receive 50% of the proceeds from designated sales at Chipotle on Saturday, Nov. 12 between 5 – 8 PM. Print the flyer below, show it on your phone, or just tell the cashier to apply your purchase to the LBCG fundraiser. This event is valid only at the 1800 Ximeno Ave., Long Beach (cross street Atherton, near the Traffic Circle) location. Post on your neighborhood websites and share with your friends and families!
