2. PACKAGE DELIVERY SAFETY
A resident recently reported that a package went missing from her front porch. It was later discovered to have been taken by the postal service, who thought it was an outgoing package. However, this should serve as a reminder that it is never safe to leave packages by your front door. Please have packages delivered with “signature required” or have them delivered to another location (such as a business office) where it can be handed to a person directly.
3. UCLA MARCHING BAND REHEARSAL NOTICE
A group of about 45 UCLA Bruin Marching Band members is preparing for a performance in Taipei, Taiwan at the end of May. In preparation for this, rehearsal will take place at the Intramural Field on May 1st, 15th and 22nd, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
For the most part, instruments will only be played until about 8:00 p.m. and we do not anticipate any impact to the surrounding community. As always, you are welcome to come by and watch the Marching Band rehearsal.
