Councilmember Hibard joined Sue Parks last week for her walk through Los Alamitos, as she attempts to walk 100 miles across Orange County. Ms. Parks is hoping to raise awareness about the United Way’s mission and provide insights into the communities that we live in. Following the walking tour, participants were treated to a meal by one of Los Alamitos' favorite restaurants: Mama’s Comfort Food and Cocktails. Please be on the look out to join Ms. Parks, as she continues her mission to walk through Orange County.
