September will be a month to remember!
Hope you and yours are settling back into the routines now that summer is officially over. Back to work or back to school, it’s time to hustle as we near the end of 2022.
One of the things I’m most proud of in my tenure on the City Council was creating the annual Citizens Academy. We have offered the nine-week course to teach residents and business owners about the City and the services it provides. I am thrilled to announce that this week we kick off a NEWversion of the program for our local 6th to 8th graders. The Junior Citizens Academy Program starts Thursday, September 29. Students will learn about our local government, including how our City operates and collaborates with other agencies to provide the community with essential services. Community service hours will be awarded each month. The Academy will be 6:30 – 7:30pm at City Hall. City staff has been working diligently with administration from each junior high to select top candidates to participate. For more information, please call 714.536.5237.
September is jam packed with events so make sure you visit SurfCityBreak.com for all the latest happenings in Surf City. The City welcomes the International Surfing Association (ISA) for the 2022 ISA World Surfing Games, September 16 – 24. This Friday, September 16, top surfers from 51 countries will proudly walk down Main Street in a parade to officially kick off the games! This is the fourth time Surf City has hosted the competition, and surfers will compete to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
