(July 26, 2005) -- Donations collected by volunteers from the El Dorado Park Neighborhood Association (EPSNA), plus a donation from Vice Mayor/5th district Councilwoman Jackie Kell of part of her annual taxpayer-funded raise (mandated for various city officials under LB's current City Charter) will team to offer LB residents an August musical treat.
The Elm Street Band -- LB's homegrown, classic rock 'n roll band -- will perform on Friday, August 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at El Dorado Park (NE corner of Studebaker/Willow).
In a written release, the El Dorado Park South Neighborhood Association (EPSNA) says the performance "is being funded by last yearís loyal fans who donated so generously with the help of volunteers of El Dorado Park South Neighborhood Association (EPSNA). Also, Vice-Mayor Kell has been generous with her donation of a portion of her raise."
EPSNA says LB residents can also "stop by the RV near the stage for information regarding the Fire Departmentís CERT program, the Police Departmentís Neighborhood Watch as well as classes and programs available through the Parks, Recreation and Marine Department. Due to budget constraints, city staff will be limited, but members of EPSNA will volunteer to be at these tables."
The Elm Street Band typically features Blasts from the Past such as "California Sun," "Louie, Louie" and "Surfin' USA." (To learn and hear more, visit www.elmstreetband.com.)
EPSNA adds that "Partners of Parks and LB's Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine have helped to make this last concert of the season a night for dancing and singing."
Enjoy...(and recall LB's Health Dept. has recommended smart dusk-time anti-mosquito WNV measures.)
[Comment: Tell Vice Mayor Kell you appreciate the show but you want the opportunity to change that Charter section on mandated Council/Mayor raises at the next citywide election, along with giving taxpayers police and firefighter levels tied to LB's population and electing Harbor Commissioners.]
Now, rock on.
