Memorial Event For Surrounding Lakewood and Downey Areas

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te


Memorial Day will be extra special this year in Lakewood, with the rededication of the newly expanded Veterans Memorial Plaza, including the refurbished Del Valle jet plane and the unveiling of over 1,400 memorial bricks purchased in the name of veterans and Lakewood community members and groups.

A very large crowd is expected, so the City of Lakewood is organizing two events on Memorial Day in an effort to spread out the audience and try to create the best viewing experience for the most people possible.

Lakewood City Council Members will join with members of American Legion Post 496, Veterans of Foreign Wars Memorial Post 8615, Disabled American Veterans Chapter 19 and Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 756 in leading the community at the two memorial events.

The first event will be the city’s traditional Memorial Day ceremony running from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Monday, May 25 at Veterans Memorial Plaza in Del Valle Park at the corner of Woodruff Avenue and Henrilee Street. Extra parking will be made available this year on the MacArthur Elementary School playground (enter from Centralia Street). Parking for persons with disabilities will be on Henrilee Street and on the portion of the MacArthur playground closest to Veterans Memorial Plaza. For more information, click here...

Watching the news on KTLA 5 this morning, it was hard to believe when we saw how much higher rents are here in California compared to the national average.  As the pictures we took of the TV displayed, rents for a 1 bedroom in LA are 43% higher than the national average and 50% higher when we’re talking about 2 bedrooms.

Los Angeles is definitely an expensive city to live in so why not try and at least see if you can own your own home for the price of renting a place.  It’s worth a shot and we’d love to see if we can make that happen for you.  If you’re going to pay a premium to rent a home, you might as well try and see if you can save a little more money for a down payment and try and buy a small residence. 

Let’s be real here.  You may get something that may be a little nicer and maybe a little more spacious renting a home, but if you are willing to compromise slightly on some things you can own your own home, build some equity (especially since we are in a rising market), and know that you are building a powerful asset for your families future!
