Volunteers help clean up La Jolla

More than 20 volunteers cleaned up Fay, Eads and Draper avenues from Silverado Street to Pearl Street on Feb. 13. The Nell Carpenter Beautification/Streetscape Committee of La Jolla Town Council, headed by Esther Viti, led the effort. The committee hosts clean-up drives in different parts of the Village the second Saturday of each month. Community beautification is attracting old and young, families and La Jolla students, many for the first time. Those participating Feb. 13 received refreshments provided by John Lenz, general manager of Focus Fitness. Junk MD donates its services by removing filled trash bags.

The next community cleanup will be from 9 a.m. to noon March 13. The sign-in table will be on Ivanhoe Avenue slightly east of Prospect Street. Gloves and pickup tools will be provided. For information, call Viti at (619) 742-1373.
