Coming Up! A Day On, Not Off 2016

PUSD students planting trees at the Washington STEAM Magnet Academy last year.

Please join the MLK Community Coalition Saturday, January 18, 2016 at 8 a.m. for a A Day On, Not Off, a campus beautification day being held at Hamilton Elementary School.  The day will begin with breakfast followed by an inspirational program with guest speaker, Pasadena Councilmember, John J. Kennedy.  Afterwards, volunteers from all over the city will come together to plant flowers and provide maintenance tasks for the school.

The MLK Community Coalition has been working with the PUSD community to provide campus beautification since 2001.  This year, A Day On, Not Off is dedicated to the memory of Al Bailey, the co-founder and previous chairperson, who passed away just 2 months after the 2015 A Day On, Not Off beautification day.  During this 15th year anniversary of the committee, Mr. Bailey’s tireless energy and dedication and commitment to the MLK Community Coalition will be fondly remembered.

The committee is comprised of Chairperson, Mr. Gerald Peterson and members David Jacobs, Jackie Jacobs, and Dominique Bailey.

I’d love to follow-up and get more information about volunteering. I was confused as to whether or not the volunteer day is Saturday, January 16 or Monday, January 18. The flyer says Saturday, January 18.

Please let me know how I can get involved and when the scheduled event is.
