It's a big weekend. What are you doing?

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Everyday, the Mayor's office sends us his schedule. Alarm goes off at 5 a.m., snooze is hit for another 9 minutes. 5:09 a.m., snooze button, part 2.

Okay, it's not that detailed.

However, with Big Sunday (are you volunteering?), the mayor is busier than usual for a weekend. He has six appearances from 8 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. ranging from hanging with the Black Eyed Peas at Paramount Studios, giving trees away with the South Central LA Farmers in South LA, planting trees with TreePeople and ending it at Sylmar High School in the Northeast Valley.

So, what are you doing today?

What about tomorrow? The Mayor has 7 more events from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. At the very least, if you have no plans, this is a good way to get out and give back.
