Vandalism on Daisy Avenue Christmas
Tree Lane

Annual Displays Victims of Tagging

November 29, 2007. Long Beach . David Carlton, President of the Wrigley Association, announced that within days, possibly hours, of the displays along Christmas Tree Lane being delivered to Daisy Avenue, the large Christmas Tree Cut outs at the entrance at PCH were vandalized. Wrigley Association Board members immediately came out with paint to fix the large markers at the entrance to Christmas Tree Lane .

Carlton said, ''it is a sad day when something so great as the community displays on Daisy Avenue honoring Christmas our marred by those members of our community who put their person tag on things. This is not the first time in the history of this event that our displays have been disrupted by those who would rather tear down our community and build it up. Hopefully the fact that we quickly noticed the problem and were able to correct it will discourage other troublemakers from similar attacks. With the hard work and help of long time community volunteers like Annie Greenfeld-Wisner and Maria Norvell who have put so much time into making these event a success, we will continue to be vigilant against future attacks.'' Anyone who notices any problems or vandals on Christmas Tree Lane is encouraged to email or call 562-424-0790, and repairs will be taken care of as quickly as possible.

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 . The Wrigley Association will also host a free community Christmas celebration with food from members and local businesses on Monday December 3rd at 7pm at Veteran's Park. Please come out to Wrigley and join the celebration.

Thank you

I want to thank the Wrigley Association for the hard work of cleaning up the displays.

Cleaning of Displays

All of the cleaning, repairs, and new paint on the displays was actually done by a group of volunteers from WANA not the Wrigley Assoc.
