2009 Movies in the Park

Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of outdoor movies and the Claremont Police Department invites everyone to its 4th Annual Movies in the Park event. This is a great community event for families, neighbors, and friends of all ages.

We will be serving hot dogs, chips, and drinks prior to the show. The Human Services Department will be on site with games and crafts for kids to enjoy. Pre-movie activities will start at approximately 6:30 PM, with the movies starting at dusk.

We will cap the season off with a special National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 4th. National Night Out is a night that citizens across America can send a powerful message about neighborhood unity, awareness, safety and police-community partnerships. Free In-N-Out hamburgers will be served to the first 750 guests that evening.

If you're looking to phase out your old incandescent light bulbs, you can get some new, energy efficient ones for free next weekend at Montclair Plaza. Here's the info from the City:

Operation Light Exchange

Operation Light Exchange is an energy efficiency program that allows residential customers of Southern California Edison to exchange inefficient halogen and incandescent light fixtures for new, Energy Star labeled lamps. SCE customers may bring up to 10 lamps for exchange. To participate, please make sure you have your California drivers license showing a residential ZIP code in SCE's service territory or a residential SCE bill. Operation Light Exchange also accepts used CFL bulbs for recycling (no fluorescent tubes). The event will take place on July 18 and 19 between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Montclair Plaza.
