DISCLAIMER – “Gilmore to Archwood” BBQ

Hello Neighbors,

You may have gotten word of a “Gilmore to Archwood” BBQ scheduled for later this month.

Many Valley Glen residents are confused about who is planning this event. Because the VGNA’s name and officers have been among other non-involved parties mentioned in some of the event’s marketing and correspondence, we want to clarify that the VGNA has had no role in discussing, planning, or sponsoring this BBQ. We hope, as we do for all Valley Glen neighborhood events, that the BBQ organizers are considerate to the local neighborhood and conscientious in ensuring that the event is safe and enjoyable for attendees.

Thank you as always for your attention and ongoing support.

Clean Team Making Improvements In Our Neighborhood

It was a turbo-charged VGNA Clean Team event on the morning of Saturday, June 24th. The triangular meridian at Coldwater and Burbank has a welcome sign for Valley Glen, but the meridian was not very welcoming. The pictures tell a happy tale. Kudos to some great teamwork from the VGNA Clean Team (kudos to Joan Gil, Tom and Janet Newton, Rich and Angela Rossi, Tony Richelieu, and Bruce and Jennifer Gaims) for making a huge difference. Special thanks to Sahag Yedalian and Councilman Krekorian's office for supplying the tools and picking up the mountain of trash bags that was created. These events are fun, and all Valley Glen residents are invited to come out and feel good about beautifying our community. See you on July 29th!

Here are some before and after images:

The VGNA needs grid reps!

The Valley Glen Neighborhood Association is organized into 11 mini-neighborhoods called grids. Each grid has representatives or “reps” who act as liaisons between their grid and the larger community. Grid reps also help distribute the VGNA newsletter to Valley Glen homes four times a year. We plan to hold quarterly get-togethers expressly for grid reps to help everyone become better acquainted and to have some fun in the process.
