The Galt Beautification Committee would like to thank Ross Farrow, reporter for the Lodi News-Sentinel, for writing an excellent article about the committee.
Karen Chandler was elected our chairwoman, and as she stated in the article, "We want to make a difference now."
That she has, in spite of her busy work schedule.
We are inspired as members to help the community become more involved and aware of what our committee efforts are.
Unfortunately, graffiti is a big problem; the committee is the task force removing it quickly when detected. Littering is also a real eyesore. City Council Member Barbara Payne's "I Love My Town" is a great plan she presented at our meeting.
The beautiful mixed spring flowers that you see in bloom around town are credited to Inez Kirui, American Cancer Society "Flowers of Hope."
This past fall, citizens of various committees and volunteers, including the mayor, got together on a weekend planting flowers. The Beautification Committee was represented with our former chairwoman Patrice Moreno participating. Inez is a good example of one person making a difference.
Our committee is most grateful for all the help we have received from the community and from the city staff. Special thanks to Troy Bonnet, parks superintendent, for taking care of a couple recent requests, moving the planters and repairing the brick fixture at Smud Park. Sue, we appreciate you keeping us organized.
If you have questions or want to volunteer, contact Karen at (916) 302-6234.
