September is bringing the hottest weather of the whole summer and it seems that everyone is tired of so much heat. Hang in there my calendar that shows the First Day of Autumn to be Sunday, September 22, 2013.  If you haven’t been to the L.A. County Fair (in Pomona), there is still time.  If you have never been to the Fair, you are in for quite an experience and if you are a “regular,” like I am, it is hard to decide, once you get there, what to see and what to eat first!   So many things to see, including farm animals (the babies are my favorites) and so many delicious treats of all sorts.  Of course, the rides are one of the major attractions.  Something for those of all ages.  If you don’t want to drive, the El Monte Family Adventure Shuttle is offering a trip on Saturday, September 21, 2013.  The cost of $15.00 /Adults, $11.00/children 6-12 and $5.00 for children 2 – 5 includes round trip transportation and admission ticket to the L.A. County Fair.  Children must be at least two years of age and all children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.  Shuttle tickets must be purchased in advance and last date of purchase is September 19th. For further information contact the City of El Monte Public Works Department Transportation Services Division at 626-580-2217.
