On Sunday, March 30, 2014, San Diego will host its second annual “Open Streets” event. CicloSDias is a free celebration of our local neighborhoods that encourages people to come together in the spirit of being active, and having fun. We invite you to join thousands of your fellow community members who will enjoy bicycling, walking, and playing along a 2.5 mile route that will be closed off to vehicular traffic from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on March 30th. The CicloSDias route is along Garnet Avenue from Mission Boulevard to Ingraham Street in Pacific Beach and on Cass Street between Garnet and Turquoise Street . To view a map of the route click here. To volunteer for CicloSDias go to www.CicloSDias.com and click on ‘Get Involved’ and then ‘Volunteer”. If you volunteer for at least two hours and you’ll receive a free T-Shirt.

7th Annual PBTC Graffiti Clean Up
Saturday, May 3rd, 9am to 12 noon
Pacific Beach Presbyterian Church (1675 Garnet Ave.)
Volunteers will receive training and supplies to clean up graffiti in areas throughout Pacific Beach. Every year, volunteers at this event remove hundreds of graffiti tags and really make a positive difference in our community. Students can earn community service hours (under 18 must have waiver signed by parent.) This event is made possible by contributions from local businesses and residents and the Pacific Beach Presbyterian Church. To donate or print a waiver, visit www.pbtowncouncil.org or call 858 483-6666. We hope you will join us for this fun and rewarding event!
Pictured are Firefighters Chris Evelsizor and Engineer Nate Nugent taking care of Friday night’s discards. Having a storm drain so close to our Fire Station, it is extremely important that we stay on top of the refuse to help our friends in the ocean. We are also very proud to be able to work and live in beautiful Pacific Beach. Sincerely, Captain Don Mckinney21/A Division.
