Alhambra City Councilman Luis Ayala addressed parents during the June 9 council meeting, encouraging them to sign their children up for summer activities in the city. "I just want to take the opportunity to remind, especially the parents of youth, that the city offers a great number of programs," Ayala said. "We are now starting our summer and a lot of kids are out of school so I want to invite you all to take advantage of all of the programs that we have."
Alhambra is also offering the Summer Food Service Program until Aug. 8. The U.S. Department of Agriculture program will distribute meals and snacks in Alhambra, Almansor, Granada, and Story parks to any child under 18. Visit the city website for schedules. The city website also lists upcoming community events for the entire family.
