UHCA has held monthly meetings for 31 years. One guest speaker has the singular distinction of getting a standing ovation. Don’t miss our June 5th meeting or you will miss the fun and humorous Bill Tall, founder of City Farmer’s Nursery, who will talk about gardening and being water wise. City Farmer’s Nursery is family owned, offers free classes and advice, organic seeds, plants, dirt, etc., and is a fun experience for the whole family. All kinds of critters live at the nursery, and it is co-located with Nate’s Garden Grill, where you can get fresh food with local ingredients, a friendly atmosphere, and an expansive selection of 21 craft brews and 8 local wines, all at a good value.
PUBLIC OUTCRY SAVES AMERICAN FLAGS ALONG PARK BLVD
For the first time in 60 years, the Hillcrest Lions Club almost had to stop putting up flags in Hillcrest due to ONE person, a member of the North Park Maintenance Assessment District (MAD), filing a complaint with the City of San Diego Code Compliance department about flags being placed on Park Blvd. Thanks to outraged citizens making calls to City of San Diego officials, the Code Compliance department has advised the Lions Club they may continue to put up flags on flag holidays while completing the paperwork to obtain permits.
Thank you to Todd Gloria’s office for offering to cover the permit fees and to Michael Turko of KUSI’s Turko Files, the San Diego Union Tribune (UT), Uptown News, and other news organizations for the great coverage over the Memorial Weekend. See below.
