LandFill Harmonic

I find this so inspirational I just need to play it again every couple of months.  In my last post I showed chess/checker boards that were made from trash diverted from the landfill.

I am wondering how many people in the San Jacinto Valley would love to see our parks and outdoor seating areas of restaurants filled with musicians and board game players.

Would you like to see that in our town?    Imagine how you would feel.   Imagine feeling a sense of community.    Imagine getting to know your fellow townspeople.   I smile every time I think of this idea because IT IS POSSIBLE.  It really is.  Look what these resourceful people did:

There is funding available for community improvements such as festivals and such that bring our townspeople together.

The following is from http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/hemet/hemet-headlines-index/20140410-hemet-funding-period-opens-for-special-events.ece:

Funding period opens for special events.  April 10, 2014

Community events seeking partnerships with the city of Hemet have until April 17 to apply.

The city awarded $25,000 in cash and in-kind service in 2013 for special events to more than 10 local organizations. The Hemet Genealogical Society, Habitat for Humanity and Hemet Valley Art Association are among the groups that benefitted.

The city established a Special Funding Program in 2012 to determine how the city will contribute to community and special events, such as festivals and fundraisers.

Applications will be reviewed by a City Council ad hoc committee, which will make recommendations to the full council by the end of June.

For fiscal 2014-15, priority will be given to events in the city’s Weston, Gibbel or Mary Henley parks.

Applications for small events ($100 to $999) or large events ($1,000 or more) are available on the city website, http://www.cityofhemet.org.

An application is not a commitment for funding, according to a city news release.

For more information, call 951-765-2326.
