The winners of the annual La Mirada Spring Beautification program will be announced tonight.

The program recognizes the efforts of homeowners, schools, and businesses who enhance and preserve the beauty of the community. Property owners who have achieved a measure of excellence in the exterior maintenance and landscaping of their property are honored through this program.

Spring Beautification reinforces the high standards of the City and the spirit of neighborhood pride, which is the foundation of a well-kept community. Well-kept homes increase neighborhood property values and preserve La Mirada as an attractive community.

For this year’s program, volunteer judges reviewed homes in La Mirada from March 14 through March 25 for excellence in landscaping and exterior maintenance.

Award recipients will be honored at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts on Monday, June 13 at 6:30 p.m. The “Most Improved” and “Most Outstanding” award recipients will be shown during a slideshow presentation and winners will be presented with awards. Over 200 residents will receive recognition.

They were distributed to children at Elementary Schools in La Mirada for their home use. Also, children with special needs were thrilled to get 10 IPads for their classroom use.

This year, $5000 was allocated to Middle School teachers who applied for the grants for projects or equipment to benefit students in their classrooms, their MP Rooms or their grade level studies.

The first “Love La Mirada” day of service event will be held on April 30. Projects include painting and cleaning up local parks, improvements at schools, letters to veterans, visiting with seniors and other creative ways to serve.

The event day will begin at 8 a.m. with a launch rally at La Mirada First Church of the Nazarene, 15575 Foster Road. At the launch rally, volunteers will provide t-shirts, coffee, official wristbands, and further instructions on service projects. Projects will finish around noon and teams will return to the First Church of the Nazarene for lunch and a time of celebration with music, a bounce house and other activities.

Inspired by the Love Our Cities movement started in Modesto, California, Love La Mirada began with the support of a dozen local church leaders who decided to partner with La Mirada organizations, businesses and residents for the benefit of the community.

To sign up for a service project, visit lovelamirada.org.

UPDATE 20:01 5/2/16: Over 250 people showed up for the inaugural event organized by Greg Stump, Executive Pastor at Redeemer Church.

Pastor Jack Miranda of Living Faith Church told us Stump has achieved a great accomplishment, "We have been trying for 15 years to bring the different faiths and the community together, and he did it."
