It Takes a Village to Make a Difference in the Community

Source: Samantha Scroggin for the city of Lompoc

The city of Lompoc invites the community to come together and Make A Difference through service projects from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Oct. 28. Make A Difference Day is part of the nation’s largest day of community service.

The Lompoc Parks Division is hosting the day of service based at the Lompoc Corporate Yard, 1300 W. Laurel Ave. From there, groups will head to various project sites. Complimentary lunch will be served.

Community members are urged to participate as individuals or in groups. Each year on Make a Difference Day, various groups sign up with specific projects in mind to rejuvenate, refresh and clean up Lompoc. Others help with any projects that need assistance.

Whether one’s skills are in painting, planting, weeding, litter and debris removal, or minor repairs, these contributions make a major impact on the community.

For more information on Make A Difference Day or to sign up to participate, contact the Lompoc Parks Department by Friday, Oct. 6, at 875-8030.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
