"I am out here today because I volunteer with Friends of the L.A. River every year. I’ve been doing this for seven years now. And I’m here in this area because this is my neighborhood so I am really excited they are out in my own neighborhood and of course I am going to be out here. I actually wish they would do this more than once a year because it’s really great to bring the community together and to get so many people out to see what the city is all about and how they can help to cleanup. I am out here to do something, to just help beautify the environment. For the dumpers, look at where you’re dumping; Look around you. Let’s keep it clean. It’s where we are at. It’s our own neighborhood. It’s our own place. Let’s keep it beautiful."
