Also, not so lucky was the Exercise shop on the corner; which someone took off with several exercise bicycles down the street. These incidents were never reports in the local newspapers. Going for more sad news, is George Appliance Shop in Temple City is for sale! Any takers? I guess he wants to retire?

I also, gave out my gifts those members who made masks for various organizations within the community. kTLA Channel 5 News was there and interviewed me about our activities in the park and asked about the air quality after the fireworks in the greater Los Angeles area. I was aired several times that evening starting at 6:00 p.m.
