Business Expo, Free Shredding & Glendale Tech Week
The Foothills Community Business Expo is just around the corner on Wednesday, Sept. 14 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. At the Expo you find many businesses from La Crescenta, Montrose and La Cañada Flintridge sharing with you the services that they offer. This is a great networking opportunity for anyone who owns a business in the area to stop by and mingle with other business owners and talk with community members who have stopped in to see the Expo. We will also have free food from several local restaurants in the area for you to sample and enjoy while you walk around. Another highlight of the event is that there will be free shredding services available in the lower hospital lot. This service is being provided by Republic Services and SCORE of Greater Los Angeles to anyone who wants to come by. Don’t miss this free chance to get rid of all that stuff you keep accumulating in boxes in your office and get them shredded today. You don’t even have to get out of your car. You just get into the line and pull your car up to the truck and Glendale Police Dept. Explorers will take all the document boxes out of the car for you. The documents will be shredded while you wait! It doesn’t get any easier than that!
