For a cloudy morning in May, a lot was going on in Wildomar.
|Ace Hardware all decked out for a community barbecue.|
Over at Ace Hardware they were having a community barbecue with free food for those that stopped by. Included were hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, chips and salsa, flautas donated by Los Reyes, and cookies.
One person was remarking to me how generously filled the flautas were with chicken. Very good stuff, especially with some of their salsa on top.
The event was also a chance to donate to the Wildomar Chamber's restoration project. They're looking to put a fresh coat of paint on the Chamber building, which is basically an old house, and to get new furnishings for it too.

The other event going on this morning was waste clean up. There were two locations to choose from. The lucky ones went to Elsinore High School, where the reports are that the lines were never long. If you went to the location at Ronald Reagan Elementary School, you probably got held up in a line.
I was asking Municipal Services afficionado Les Champman about it, and he was telling me, that by 10am they had already collected as much as they normally would for a full event for that location.
The prediction was that there was going to be five times as much collected by the time it was over. We'll get a complete accounting at the next city council meeting.

When I got there at about 11:00ish, there was no sign of anything like a Waste Clean Up event. Later I was clued in that it wasn't at Marna, like the Green Waste event after the snow, but at Elsinore HS. I guess I should start reading my own blogs because I reported that it was to be at EHS just a few days ago.
Funny thing, while at the Ace Hardware BBQ one of the council members was there, and telling me how there were several people complaining on FaceBook that the FREE service, wasn't worth their time. If you're one of those that likes to grumble about free things, perhaps you should shell out some greenbacks next time and don't expect more than you put in.
In reality, if you were to go to the dump, you'd still have to wait in long lines, and you'd have to drive to it first. If you can't be bothered, then hire a service.
STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT FREE STUFF
If you haven't been hearing about such events. I suggest that you sign up for the city's email blasts.
You can also follow the Wildomar of Commerce on FaceBook for regular updates.

It was a nice morning, hope to see you at the next event.
