Safe Communities Festival Returns to Rowland Heights

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe announced today that the Safe Communities Week Health & Safety Festival is scheduled for Saturday, March 26, 2011, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Rowland Heights County Park, located at 1500 South Banida Avenue in Rowland Heights.

For the 19th consecutive year, the Rowland Unified School District and the communities it serves will be observing Safe Communities Week, March 21-26, promoting a safe, secure and peaceful environment.  The Festival is a time to celebrate the role all facets of the community play in promoting a safe, secure, and peaceful environment for all to enjoy.

“The vitality of the County of Los Angeles depends on how safe we keep our homes, neighborhoods, work places, and communities,” said Supervisor Knabe.  “The major focus of this long-term commitment is to make a positive difference for our communities by educating our youth and adults, providing positive alternatives and role models for children, and unifying the support of the local community.”

Many school, community and public service groups have already committed to providing entertainment and/or informational booths.  Among the groups are Supervisor Knabe’s Office, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, Rowland Unified School District and Operation Safe Community.  For more information, please call (626) 854-8359.
