I hope many of you got out and enjoyed the beautiful weather and supported a couple of great causes this weekend! The Irvine Animal Care Shelter’s 5th Annual Super Pet Adoption on Saturday, June 11 from 10 -4 was a HUGE success. If you missed your opportunity, please visit 6443 Oak Canyon Road in Irvine – or click here – and consider adding a new member to your family.
The Irvine 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee also held a fantastic car wash fundraiser this past weekend. It’s a great organization and one I hope you’ll consider supporting in the future: The Irvine 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee accepts donations to help underwrite the cost of supporting Marines and their families. See www.irvine211marines.org for more information.
I have a couple of events of my own coming up that I hope you’ll mark on your calendars. This Thursday morning, June 16 at 7:30 a.m. I have the honor of being the speaker for the Morning Buzz at the Irvine Chamber of Commerce. Taking place at Oak Creek Country Club, you can find more information here. Join me!
And on Saturday, June 25, I’m proud to participate with The Joyful Child Foundation — Erin Runnion’s amazing child safety education organization — and IUSD Board Member Carolyn McInerney and former OC Supervisor and Megan’s Law Author Todd Spitzer in and Irvine Child Safety Fair at Canyon View Elementary from 9-12 noon. Irvine is America’s Safest City, but we need to always be vigilant — with new safety laws and consistent community education. Please join me for this fun and educational day.
Finally, our next regularly schedule Irvine City Council meeting is tomorrow night, June 14, at 5 p.m. The creation if Irvine Child Safety Zones — being considered at my direction — will be back before the City Council. I continue to maintain if we prohibit convicted sex offenders from living near schools, why would we allow them to loiter in our parks and playgrounds where children often gather unsupervised? Please come to City Hall tomorrow night and make your voice heard.
