Can You Say U-C-L-A!

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- On Saturday, November 26, Coaches White and Mercado took a group of students to the UCLA campus in Westwood, California.  Despite the rain, students had the opportunity to tour the university in order to get a taste of what college life is like.  No visit to UCLA would be complete, though, without catching a Bruins vs. USC women’s volleyball game, which was most certainly the highlight of the trip!

Victims and Survivors of San Bernardino Terrorist Attack are Receiving a Healing Grove Memorial

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- The Incredible Community Garden (IECG) will commemorate and plant a Healing Grove Memorial honoring Harry “Hal” Bowman whose life was lost with 13 others in last December’s terrorist attack in San Bernardino.  

The planting ceremony will take place at San Antonio Park (N Mountain Ave & W 24th St, Upland, CA 91784) on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 10 a.m.

“This planting is about bringing the community together in memory of Hal and those we lost. We come together for peace and healing,” Mary Petit said, Co-Executive Director of IECG.

The public is invited to attend and help show Hal’s family and survivors the love that our community endures.

“For many, this memorial and others like it will help cope with the pain and shock that our community has gone through,” Eleanor Torres said, Co-Executive Director of IECG. 

Join IECG and Hal’s family for this special event as we plant trees as a living memorial to those who lost their lives last December.

Bring your gloves, your shovel, and your heart. 

This planting is part of a series of IECG memorial plantings in memory of the victims and survivors of the Dec. 2, 2015 terrorist attack.
