Good evening, San Gabriel

We hope you'll join us at our next Complete Count Committee meeting on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Adult Recreation Center in the Padilla Room. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for the community. We hope you'll join us for this important informational session.

Now, here is what's making news for the week of January 8, 2020:
