We have had a good Kick off to summer here in Alamitos Heights. The AHIA ( Alamitos Heights Improvement Association, say that three times fast) hosted the Annual Picnic/BBQ. This was a good time to meet neighbors from other streets, play games with the kids and volunteer for a committee on the AHIA board.
This is also when the AHIA recognizes a resident for outstanding work in the community. This year we had two, Karen Taylor and Holland Brown. These two ladies created the Award winning “Learning Garden” at Lowell Elementary School. Karen and Holland Volunteer countless hours to help teach the kids at Lowell. Many lessons coincide with what the kids are leaning in class; History, Science, Etc. Having helped in the Learning Garden, I can say personally, that the enthusiasm and dedication these ladies bring is amazing. They have won many awards for Lowell. People like these are what make Alamitos Heights a great community, and what make our local schools the Best.
Last, we just had our first Community Yard Sale. Over 15 homes participated. I can say, that on our block, it was more of a party and social event, then a sale.
