Events in 2018

Let's Talk Trash

OTNA will be participating in the City of Torrance Yard Open House Saturday, June 2, 2018. OTNA will have a table at this event. If you would like to volunteer please contact Janet Payne or Debbie Hayes via our Contact Us page.

"Let's Talk Trash" is the name of the OTNA booth and is a very catchy phrase to get people to stop by and learn what they can do to help with keeping the City look good by picking up trash. We display our CROWN OF TRASH, hand crafted and designed by Charlie Meyers, OTNA member and Old Torrance Resident, and donated by Dayna Berman and Michael Peterson who won it at an OTNA meeting. It is a fun conversation piece. Everyone has fun figuring what the trash items are and all the items on the crown were rounded up by OTNA volunteers picking up trash. We have our project tips sheet for anyone interested in doing an organized clean-up and have individual hand-wipes as a give-a-way.

Charlie Saulenas and Elaine Thompson are both long time OTNA members and volunteers. Elaine is a past OTNA President and is the OTNA Clean-up Coordinator since September 2014. They will help set up the booth the day of the event. Please volunteer!
