CITIZEN COMMENTS

Karen Kops from H.A.L.O. reported that the Fifth Annual Ramble ‘Round the Reservoir will take place Sunday, June 1, 2003, from 10:00 - 2:00 p.m. at Contra Loma Regional Park in Antioch. The purpose of this event is to increase awareness of animal welfare/rescue work and raise funds to educate the community and support H.A.L.O. sponsored activities. The city of Antioch and EBRPD have co-sponsored this event for the past four years. H.A.L.O is not requesting any funds; their intent is to use the City of Brentwood as a co-sponsor in hopes that the support will result in more exposure to the event.
