Tuesday morning report, Aug. 18

Five things to know this Tuesday morning: 

1.) A helicopter is scheduled to deliver large, commercial AC units to the Promenade shopping center at 4 p.m. today. 

The drop is expected to last about an hour, and is faster and more efficient than using a crane, officials said. 


2.) Warren High School's band and color guard are beginning their annual decal drive tonight, and over the next three nights will be visiting Downey neighborhoods to solicit donations.

Students will be in band attire and visiting neighborhoods between 5-8 p.m.

“Your support helps us to keep our award-winning program successful,” band and color guard members said. “We thank you for your support and hope to see you during this community event.”

3.) PIH Downey is hosting a community presentation today titled "Mind Over Matter: One Step at a Time."
