There are a couple open house events coming up soon. From Dave Tamayo, one of Sacto's finest environmental crusaders:Friends,
I'm on the Board of Trustees of the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District. If you live in the City of Sacramento, I represent you.
This Saturday, we are having an open house at the District headquarters, at 8631 Bond Road. 10-3.
Besides free food, activities for kids, and raffle prizes (portable screened shelter), you can learn about District services and how to avoid West Nile Virus and mosquitoes.
If you want to talk about District policies or plans to control WNV, please contact me.
Hope to see some of you there.
