March is here bringing much need rain and St. Patrick’s Day! The San Fernando Valley is a very special place. It offers a small-community way of life, yet also features world-class business, commercial, employment and visitor opportunities. Our little corner of The Valley has a rich community of diverse cultures and traditions, but for certain we all love to shop! We are stunned and saddened that Kroger has taken away our neighborhood Ralphs. We have a few places to shop for food and other needs, but more and more, we are forced to leave Sylmar to find quality products. HINT: This is a huge opportunity for someone with the vision to understand and serve our community of 80,000+ residents!

Events coming up: March 8 are the Sylmar Neighborhood Council Elections click here to read the candidate statements and LA City sponsored Toxic Oil and EWaste Recycling. Friend of the Sylmar Library hugely popular Book Sale is coming up March 14 and 15. Please visit our Calendar for more details on these and other local events.
