On September 12th from 9 am to 11:30 am join us for the 3rd Alley cleanup of the year!

Turnout permitting, we’ll be tackling the alleys between: Orange and Brayton,
Brayton and Gundry,
Gundry and Falcon, and
Falcon and Walnut.

Volunteers adjacent to those alleys especially welcomed – but anyone who would like to help is welcome, as always!

We’ll meet at the corner of Falcon and 37th at 9:00 am.

Tools will be provided but we can always use more, we’ll provide gloves and bags.

Thanks in advance to volunteers, Litter Free Long Beach and Environmental Services for their help and camaraderie in keeping our alleyways clean.

After the cleanup, please join the block party. This quarter we’ll be grillin’ & chillin’ on the 3600 block of Falcon Avenue


Then on September 12th from Noon to 3pm join us for the 3rd block party of the year!

9/12 Noon to 3 pm – Block Party/Potluck, following the 2015 Second Quarterly California Heights Alley Cleanup!

The party will be on the 3600 block of Falcon just south of 37th Street.

You do not have to attend the alley clean-up to join in on the block party fun – all are welcome!

If you would like to bring food to the block party:
If you have an EVEN address, bring an appetizer for 7-10 people.
If you have an ODD address, bring a dessert for 7 – 10 people.

We started the block parties last year and they have been a great way to meet and stay connected with your neighbors.

Connected neighborhoods are safer neighborhoods! The better we know the folks who share our space, the better we all are at recognizing and reporting suspicious behavior. Besides that, it’s fun! We hope you’ll join us!
