From Organizer of Little Tokyo Sparkle:
Because our last Little Tokyo Sparkle was such a success, there were requests to do this again.  So we will be having the 2nd bi-annual Little Tokyo clean up and rededication of the refurbished Japanese Village Plaza Mural to honor the longtime community leader and volunteer, Nancy Kikuchi.  Nancy always said “volunteerism is a do good feel good activity!”  And we felt that last year as teams worked together to clean up Little Tokyo.  And especially the lunch crew who prepared and served the delicious lunch.

I don’t know if you knew but the Little Tokyo Sparkle received the the Monster Cleanup Award for the Largest Cleanup!  by the city of Los Angeles.

Volunteers will be needed to help clean the streets so if you know anyone who might want to volunteer to do that, bring them down with you or pass this email along.  We need names, emails and phone #’s to advise you of any last minute changes and to insure everyone is properly acknowledged.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sat. May 13th!!!  Let’s SPARKLE!!!
