So what brings you to Leimert Park Beat? Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am interested in special activities that take place in the local community. Activities such as concerts, rallies, scholarships, volunteerism. Just want to make some new friends and see things from a different perspective in the coming new year.

My Leimert Park Secret:
The little novelty store owned by a woman that has all kinds of interesting finds. Like to go there for friends birthdays for mugs, pictures, stuff like that. Lucy Florence is fun too.

I send out community news to all the block clubs and neighbors regarding issues, events and city council notifications. Please let me know if you'd like to be on the mailing list. We have lots of work to do to make Leimert Park a better place to live--better grocery stores, more restaurants and better schools. There are lots of ways to get involved. I can help keep you informed of the opportunities.
