Share The Risk – Share The Rewards
Volunteers are needed for the Fourth Annual Briggs Terrace Work Day and Block Party on Saturday, June 7 from 7 a.m. to noon. The event is sponsored by the Crescenta Valley Fire Safe Council, the Upper Canyonside Community Assn. and Briggs Terrace Community Partners.
It is a way for neighbors to help neighbors. Residents join together to clear brush from hillsides and near homes while identifying neighbors in need that require assistance in completing the brush clearance.
There will be a potluck block party later from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Phyllis Street in Briggs Terrace. For information, email Judy Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
