We will have a booth and I am planning on bringing soil, small containers, seeds for people to start a little plant and a by laurel tree to give a way fresh leaves. We will also have info about the club. If you want to come and sit with me, please do. Or come and check out this awesome new community space. Also, if you have any plants you would like to give away - maybe extra starts or something you have tons of, please let me know and bring it along. Hope to see you all.
LEMON GROVE WELCOMES PIONEER MODERNISM PARK AND CITRONICA ONE WITH PARTY FOR PUBLIC SEPT. 27
The City of Lemon Grove and the Lemon Grove Historical Society invite the public to a grand opening party on the Main Street Promenade on Friday evening, Sept. 27 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
This hometown event celebrates the completion of the striking Pioneer Modernism Park at the Lemon Grove Trolley Station and welcomes Lemon Grove’s newest neighbors -- the residents of Citronica One, the new, five-story, modernistic residential and business structure recently completed by Hitzke Development adjacent to Highway 94 and the trolley station.
“Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow” -- the theme of the Pioneer Modernism Park -- was designed by Robin Brailsford and Wick Alexander to evoke Lemon Grove’s agricultural, civic and educational history. Visitors can view the installations in the park, such as the "history walk" photographs from the Historical Society's collection, and the energy-generating solar tree and wind spire, tractor slide, mosaics, charming seats, and windmill.
Visitors are encouraged to bring children, friends and colleagues to enjoy Carlos Villatoro Flamenco, Michael Govert Break Dancers, Ballet Folklorico en Azatland and Phoenix Band with Ed Watt. The program starts at 4:15 p.m. with remarks and a ribbon-cutting by Mayor Mary Sessom followed by the performances.
Children will delight in contest games involving hula hoops, jump ropes, bubble blowing and whistling. Free cookies and lemonade will be available to all.
There will be opportunities to meet the people who run the City of Lemon Grove and its service clubs, school district, youth groups, churches, HEAL Zone, and more.
The event is made possible by the generosity of Cal Coast Designs, Kimley-Horn & Associates, Minnali Engineering Corp., and the Ofield Family Trust.
