you scream, I scream, we all scream for Fred Van Allen
Actually, perhaps you don't scream for Fred Van Allen, of The Garden fame, who is running for District 1 of the city council. You may be screaming for someone else entirely, which is just fine -- we are nothing if not ecumenical here at M-M-M-My Pomona.
But if you're interested in hearing about what Fred would like to do on city council, he and Dawn are having an ice cream social from 4 to 6pm on Sunday, June 29, at the Garden on Garey. As Dawn told me today when I stopped by to get some dill and a six-pack of kale (I don't know how that horseradish plant crept into my car...), it's a great excuse to have ice cream for dinner.
For the record, I'm happy to promote the meet-and-greet events of other candidates, regardless of their politics, so feel free to drop me a line (mmwwah~at~yahoo.com).
Well, there are probably a few platforms I wouldn't feel comfortable publicizing. All you members of the Worse and Fewer Restaurants In Pomona! party might find a more friendly ear elsewhere.
I woulda linked to the Garden website, but some financial-services company seems to have absconded with the domain name. Harrumph! The photo, however, is from an old Garden newsletter that I still had hanging around in my inbox.
