Lombardi Ranch
Halloween and Lombardi ranch, a perfect match.  To close the October season, join the Monster Dash 5K and Kids K.  What other course has the fun of Lombardi’s?  You’ll climb up Dead Man’s Hill, run down the pumpkin patch and through the multiple corn mazes and Scarecrow Alley.  Costumes are highly encouraged!  Race proceeds benefit the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for children’s cancer.  For over 30 years, family-operated and owned Lombardi Ranch has provided family fun to the SCV.  Continue that tradition this weekend with live entertainment, bake sales, face painting, petting zoo, train rides, corn maze, wagon rides and choosing the perfect pumpkin.  And don’t forget to pick up extra pumpkins, gourds and corn for holiday decorating and farm fresh fruits and vegetables for good eating.  If you’re very lucky you’ll get to hear David Reeves Carpenter sing the Lombardi Ranch song one more time before autumn closes.

Seasonal Flu Vaccinations
Get your flu shot and help our national security preparedness.  That’s right, at College of the Canyons there will be a free of charge community flu-shot event on Friday from 10am-2pm (while supplies last) in the West Physical Ed building, off Rockwell Canyon.  Inoculations will be given in anticipation of an active flu season.  This event also tests the Cities Readiness Initiative response, in conjunction with L.A. County Department of Public Health and COC, during a bioterrorism attack and help prepare for our community’s response to a potential pandemic.  The Initiative’s purpose is to treat an impacted, mass population with medications within a short time period.  But, all that said, the flu-shot is free.  Click here for further information and directions.
