Local Fireworks Displays

In a message relayed by Councilmember Jimenez of District 2 help celebrate a safe and fun Fireworks celebration this July 4th. There are shows at these following venues. Please attend one of these fireworks displays instead of igniting your own which are ILLEGAL within the City of San Jose. With this past winter’s heavy rainfall, there is plenty of overgrowth along the hillsides increasing the fire hazard this summer.

April 6th LPNA meeting videos

For those of you unable to attend the April 6th meeting I did record it on video (pardon some of the production issues as I was breaking in some new hardware) and made available here in 3 parts. There is no guarantee future meetings will be recorded/available. Member attendance and participation is absolutely critical, especially if we vote on issues that impact the community as a whole.
