Eastside Neighbors Throw A Picnic

 Greeters
PICNIC SUNDAY
Yesterday, on a glorious late spring Costa Mesa Sunday the Eastside Costa Mesa Neighbors Group threw a picnic for their members and neighbors and it was a rousing success.

FUN!
There was plenty of fun and fraternization for all as around 100 neighbors gathered at Harper Park to share the sunshine, fun and food.
 Watermelon for all
 Neighbors and friends
POLITICIANS
Heck, even some local politicians managed to find their way from their homes in remote parts of town to spread their own special brand of joy and field questions from curious residents.

Of course, there was plenty of fun for the children present, too.
 Balloon Fun!

PRIZES, TOO
And raffles at the end of the day made a lovely closing.

KUDOS TO ALL
Congratulation to my friends who comprise the Eastside Costa Mesa Neighbors Group for an outstanding event.  We look forward to them hosting a Candidate Forum later this year.

Can I ask, who is running the Eastside Group? In the flyer they were asking for donations and referenced a website, but I can't find out who is involved. I think it is great, but would be interested in a little bit of understanding of who they are.

Looks like a fun event, sorry I missed it, but the kids decided they wanted to sleep.

Is it true that Fitzy showed up and searched around the tables of food for some Twinkies or Twinkie desert like an anteater who hadn't eaten in weeks? I can only picture him rushing from table to table sniffing out his favorite little cream-filled snack.

The president of The Eastside Costa Mesa Neighbors Group is Jeff McConville. Call the number on the flyer for more information about the group. The used the picnic as a fundraiser to pay the costs of conducting candidate forums. In the last cycle theirs was the best of the bunch.
