Wrigley Association Funds Lighting on
> Daisy Avenue Christmas Tree Lane
> November 7, 2007. Long Beach . Last
night, David Carlton, President of the Wrigley Association along with
Treasurer Annie Greenfeld-Wisner presented City Council member Tonia
Reyes Uranga with a check in the amount of $7,000 dollars to upgrade
the lighting on Christmas Tree Lane insuring festive lights will be
possible for years to come. This is in addition to the $12,200.00
the Wrigley Association had previously given to Partners of Parks for
Christmas Tree Lane that will be used by the City of Long Beach for
this purpose. The City of Long Beach will provide the rest of the
funds necessary for this project.
>> David Carlton, President of the Wrigley
Association said that ''these funds will arrive in time to ensure that
we will have festive lighting along the parade route and for all the
visitors who come to see the decorations this Christmas. We should
never go without lights again like we did last year.'' Carlton
added ''The Wrigley Association is proud to be the organization behind
the great Christmas Tree Lane tradition for almost twenty years and
to be able to make possible its continued presence in our community
for generations to come.''
> ''This has been quite a week for the neighborhood. On
Wednesday we had hundreds of kids join us for a Halloween Carnival,
Saturday we planted 150 trees, Monday we hosted a forum for the 55th
assembly election attended by more than 80 people and today we ensure
the Christmas Tree Lane will flourish for years to come. I am
humbled to be a part of such a far reaching all volunteer
organization of concerned citizens.''
> Councilwoman Reyes Uranga was thrilled to continue this
community tradition, ''when you have involved citizens like the
members of the Wrigley Association in your district it makes things a
lot easier for me as a representative. Since last year's parade I
have worked closely with the Wrigley Association to ensure that the
lights on the trees would return, and I am proud to say that they
have come through to fill the gap between what the city had available
and what needed to be spent.''
> The Wrigley Association has partnered with the
City of Long Beach to sponsor and help organize the more than 50 year
old Christmas Tree Lane parade and events since its inception. This
year's parade will be Saturday, December 8, 2007 . Last year, the
City of Long Beach did not have the funds available to do necessary
upgrades to the electrical systems on Daisy Avenue to be able to
light the trees along Christmas Tree Lane . This year, the Wrigley
Association stepped in to make sure there would be enough money
available to light up the tree's again and for the foreseeable future.
> The Wrigley Association is a neighborhood association dedicated to
improving the lives in the Wrigley area of Long Beach . The
Association has more than 260 members in the Wrigley neighborhood.
The general meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at
7:00 P.M. at the Veteran's Park Social Hall, 101 East 28th Street .
(If the first Monday is a holiday, meeting will be held on the second
Monday of the month). Child Care and parking are free.
