ChampionView – Rhonda Allen


ModestoView wants to send out a big thanks to Rhonda Allen, who has championed the LaLoma Native Plant Garden and rallied a whole neighborhood and our city to make this all a reality. You can see Rhonda in addition to her other civic projects, out along Encina tending to the Native Plant Garden. This is truly a community project and gets better every day. There are many ways to get involved and be a part of this park. It is a great way to learn about what really survives in our valley weather and climate.

Please come out to the park at Encina at Conejo for the official ribbon cutting on November 19th at 2 pm. Again, we celebrate the ideas, energy and persistence of Rhonda Allen. She is an inspiration and an example of how our neighborhood groups can accomplish great things.
