New Year, Streamlined Blog, Upcoming Events


Sunroom Desk is getting cleaned off and reorganized in a website update and redesign, the first project of the New Year. A new look will be launched in a few weeks!

The new “desk” may or may not have a spot for a public calendar: truthfully, it takes a great deal of time to maintain a running calendar of events for readers, even just the ones I attend! Most of these are also promoted on sponsoring organizations’ websites, in emails, or on Facebook and Twitter. Follow them on these direct channels. Don’t have a list? Visit the blog regularly and you’ll find most of them mentioned at some point in regular posts.

Here are three examples, and three events to attend:

Presentation on Two Proposed Glendale Charter Amendments on the April 2, 2013 Ballot – GWP Transfers and Treasurer Appointment v. Election.
An informational presentation followed by Q&A – open to the community. Hosted by the Glendale Homeowners Coordinating Council, and part of the organization’s regular monthly meeting.
Monday January 14, 2013, 7 p.m., in the Glendale Police Department Community Room, 131 N. Isabel St., Glendale.
