well, as the loooooong independence weekend winds down wanted to take a moment to update you on a busy and extremely successful holiday weekend in laguna beach.

Independence Weekend Petition Drive

we had a tremendous response from volunteers taking clipboards with SAVE the BOOM!!! petitions all over town. since it was a hot weekend throughout Southern California we hit the beaches with tables and clipboards and got lots of enthusiastic signers — both laguna residents as well as visitors. several people asked to take petitions with them to go get signatures on their own. it is amazing that the awareness and optimism have really increased over just the last couple of weeks.

over the four days, we covered the busy downtown area walking and stationed in front of johnny rockets at the corner of pacific coast highway and forest. and we set up SAVE the BOOM!!! tables in front of Albertson’s and Ralphs’s supermarkets. additionally, we had some volunteers walking their own neighborhoods and had great success at the boom boom room each night. I have not seen as busy a fourth of July weekend in many many years. it looks like laguna is back!
