 How Cold Does It Get Here?

"Snow Comes to Montebello City Park"
by Anne Donofrio-Holter

Thanks to the City of Montebello, the Montebello Gang Diversion Task Force, Telacu Industries, Attina Companies, National Environmental Services and the Montebello Rotary Club, snow came to City Park on December 15.

Over 400 children, as well as adults, were able to frolic in 27 tons of freshly blown snow as well as slide down a specially constructed snow slide on inverted rubber trash can lids.  A special Christmas train provided rides around the park and there were holidays snacks for all who attended.  A raffle of 25 beautifully decorated Christmas trees, donated by Mike and Rosemary Torres, was held.  In addition, over 400 whole pies and half gallons of ice cream were donated by the Heart of Compassion Food Bank in Montebello.

"This is a wonderful, family-oriented event giving kids, and others who might not have the opportunity, a chance to have some fun in the snow," said Montebello Mayor Bill Molinari, who coordinated the snow delivery and snow slide setup.  "It's my favorite program of the year."

"The Montebello Rotary Club is proud to partner with the City of Montebello and others in bringing this wonderful event to our community," said Tom Millhouse, Rotary Club president.
