Letter from Council President
September 4, 2023
HAPPY LABOR DAY, PICO UNION!
It's time to relax and enjoy the holiday that nineteenth century labor activists push hard to establish in an effort to bring recognition to the contributions of the workers, who helped build America's strength and economy.
Speaking of work, our Council has been busy behind the scenes. In early August, we participated and celebrate with our friends at Unicomdes USA at the 25th Dia Del Salvadoreano on Venice Blvd between Vermont Avenue and Normandie Avenue. Two hot days did not stop us, or the crowds, from enjoying the festivities: lots of fun, tasty food, lively music and great family entertainment. We hope you had the opportunity to attend this amazing event.
Also, PUNC assisted in distributing 150 fresh produce bags in partnership with Central City Neighborhood Partners and Berendo Neighborhood Association to the residents around New Hampshire Street between 11th and 12th Street. LAPD Olympic Division officers provided traffic guidance and security. Thank you, team for bringing joy to our community.
Now, get ready for fall fun activities with PUNC!
Jay Park, President
Pico Union Neighborhood Council
