The City of La Mirada and EDCO Disposal will be sponsoring a free mulch distribution event for La Mirada residents on Saturday, October 14 from 9 a.m. to noon. in the parking lot at the La Mirada Community Gymnasium, 15105 Alicante Road.

Mulch is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool, and make the garden bed more attractive. This is a self-serve, self-loading service, and residents must bring their own cans/bags and shovel. There will be a limit of three cans/bags per vehicle. Bring a tarp to cover the material if hauling in an open truck or trailer.

Residents can also protect the security of their confidential information by shredding personal documents. Certified shredding trucks will be present during the event and all items will be shredded on-site. Quantities are limited to three bankers boxes (10”x12”x15”) per household. Unwanted electronics waste (e-waste) will also be collected including TVs, computer monitors, printers, fax machines, VCRs, etc.

This event is limited to La Mirada residents only. Please bring proof of residency (i.e. CA Driver's License or utility bill). Residents are asked to enter the Community Gymnasium parking lot from Alicante Road. Household Hazardous Waste will not be accepted at this event.

Cub Scouts Expand in La Mirada With New Pack E-mail

There’s a new Cub Scout pack in La Mirada and it’s ready for YOU!

Cub Scout Pack 815 recently opened up its’ membership to boys attending Gardenhill, Escalona, and Foster Road Elementary schools.  Although not limited to this area, Pack 815 is working alongside the long running pack, Pack 919, in La Mirada to offer their scouting program to more youth in the area.

“Often as parents, we think the only extra-curricular activity our boys have is sports related.  But my oldest son wasn’t a big sports lover.  He was the kid that loved Legos and building things more so than being part of a competitive team sport,” explained Sandra Green, the new Cubmaster of Pack 815.  “I never imagined that by my son joining Cub Scouts he would be exposed to the rich diversity amongst boys his own age but also learn how to take on challenges as an individual and part of a team.”

Green, who was part of Pack 919 for nearly seven years, took on the challenge herself to start a new pack in La Mirada.  “I volunteered for years in Pack 919.  Whether it was organizing our annual popcorn sales or helping with our Scouting for Food campaign, every aspect of it I loved!  A big part of my heart still lies within Pack 919 as so many good friends are still leaders there."

She continued, "Our Cubmaster, Louis Garcia, inspired me to lead and we will continue to help lead our youth at community events.  When the opportunity presented itself to start a new pack, I couldn’t pass it up.  Pack 919 has over 80 families and we want to continue supporting our local boys so this smaller sized pack seemed the best way to still deliver the scouting program.”
