Wednesday morning report, Aug. 6
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Five things to know this Wednesday morning: 

1.) National Night Out seemed to go off without a hitch, with lots of families enjoying free food, vendors, information booths, and a bicycle safety course. The police department, with their vehicle displays and canines, was a big hit. Lots of credit goes to Jennifer Burkhardt for coordinating the event, which is now in its second year.

The Downey Symphony performs a free concert at 7 p.m. tonight at Furman Park. Kids will be invited on stage individually to help conduct the symphony.

Before the concert, Furman Park’s new playground will be dedicated at 5:30 p.m.

Parks and Recreation director Arlene Salazar will be the guest speaker at this morning’s Downey Los Amigos Kiwanis meeting. The breakfast meeting starts at 7 a.m. and, if you read this in time, you are invited to attend.

 The Downey Planning Commission meets at 6:30 p.m. tonight. Looks like a fairly routine agenda. PDF
