Big "Thank You" to Stacked Sandwich

Mike and Kai-Ya of Stacked Sandwich in Arcadia deserve a big "Thank You" from the APOA. Mike was one of our first business donors in the support of the APOA Relay for Life team. Back in early May, Mike offered up two days where 50% of the lunch procedes were donated to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Arcadia, Team APOA. Stacked Sandwich donated about $400.00 to the cause. Thanks to Mike and Kai-Ya for their support to both the APOA and Relay for Life.

2010 Relay for Life of Arcadia

The Arcadia Police Officers' Association proudly participated in the 2010 Relay for Life of Arcadia held this past weekend at the Santa Anita Race Track. Members of the APOA team raised in excess of $7,500.00 to benefit the American Cancer Society. This years event was dedicated to two of our co-workers, Arcadia Fire Department Captain Andy Troncale and Firefighter Gerry Martin who have both been stricken with cancer.

The APOA team was headed by Motor Officer John Jurman (pictured above left) who coordinated the APOA participation. Thanks to John for taking the lead! And, a big thanks to the Outback Restaurant of Arcadia for providing dinner to our team on Saturday night. The Arcadia Community was well represented for this worthwhile event with over 700 walkers taking part.

Vote YES to Extend Arcadia's Lighting Assessment District

Without a property-owner approved extension, the City must seriously consider cuts to essential City services, such as police protection, fire and emergency medical response services, street maintenance, library services, and youth/senior programs in order to keep the street lights on and properly maintained.

Arcadia residents value a safe, well-maintained City. Our safe, well lit streets help to maintain stable neighborhoods and property values, and keep Arcadia’s neighborhoods and commercial areas desirable places to live and do business.

Renewing funding for the City’s street lights will assist in maintaining the safety and character of our neighborhoods, schools, parks, and commercial districts.

The APOA encourages all residents to respond with a YES vote to extend Arcadia's Lighting Assessment District.
