Spring is a time for growth and renewal. I want to thank the citizens of Pasadena for their steadfast cooperation and support this past year as we battled the challenges brought on by the pandemic. It is encouraging to see that this April looks much more promising than this time last year. I have instructed our Office of Emergency Management and Health Departments to closely monitor our progress as City of Pasadena events and programming continue to cautiously and gradually return to normal.
We are really looking forward to the return of an in-person National Day of Prayer event. This year’s celebration will be under the Pavilion at Burke Crenshaw Park on May 6 at noon. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for details. I have been especially honored by the local pastors who visit City Hall and pray for this administration. It is a wonderful time not only for fellowship, but for them to share news and prayer requests from their congregations.
