1. HALLOWEEN SAFETY
In order to assist the Los Angeles community in enjoying this fun-filled holiday as safely as possible, the Los Angeles Police Department has compiled a list of Halloween safety tips for children and their parents.
In addition, HWPOA has contacted the LAPD as well as ACS and ADT security companies, and we have requested additional patrols on Halloween evening, particularly around Holmby Park and Warner Ave. School.
Have a safe and enjoyable Halloween weekend! Happy Halloween!
2. DAYLIGHT SAVINGS
Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night, November 1st. Daylight savings ends this Sunday, November 2nd! It’s time to “fall back” – set your clocks back one hour and get an extra hour’s sleep — at 2 am on Sunday!
It is also a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.
3. MOVIE PREMIERE – STREET CLOSURES ON NOV. 3
Universal Pictures will be holding the premiere of “Dumb and Dumber To”, at 7:30 PM on Monday, November 3, 2014 at the Regency Village Theater, located at 961 Broxton Ave.
Portions of Broxton Ave. and Weyburn Ave., including street, curb lane and sidewalks will be closed to pedestrian and street traffic on the day of the event.
