  2. Sixth Annual Community Day of Service
    • Start time: 08:00am
    • End date: Saturday, April 26th
    • End time: 12:00pm
    • More than 1,000 volunteers are expected to turn out April 26 for the Sixth Annual Day of Service, sponsored by the City of Redlands, the Redlands Service Club Council and Mormon Helping Hands, but there’s still need for more volunteers. This year volunteers will be working on community projects in four separate areas and, for the first time, expanding to the City of Highland.
      Volunteers will spread out weeding, planting, mulching, painting and repairing at Heritage Park on Orange Avenue, between Nevada and Iowa streets, the site of last year’s massive volunteer effort; Israel Beal Park, on River View Drive, south of the Santa Ana River Wash and west of Orange Street; the east end of Redlands Boulevard, along the median and the roadside; and Highland Community Park in Highland.
      The Volunteer Day of Service has become an annual event, after the stunning success of past years. Planning takes nearly a year with the City and the Redlands Service Club Council in partnership with Mormon Helping Hands.
      Along the two-mile stretch of Redlands Boulevard, volunteers will clean up and replace plants in the median, plant trees, mulch the median and shoulders and pick up trash. The City prepared for the project more than a week ago, contracting to trim all the trees along the stretch of road.
      At Israel Beal Park volunteers will remove weeds and tree stumps and replant areas of the park.
      At Heritage Park, volunteers have already begun working on irrigation in preparation for Saturday’s efforts, which will add concrete borders and decomposed granite in picnic areas and lay 20,000 square feet of sod.
      At Highland Community Park volunteers will replace the baseball infield, repair and repaint backstops and repair trash receptacles.
      The Redlands Service Club Council was formed in 2008 to offer assistance to the City through cooperative work projects and capital improvements. Working with the City’s Quality of Life Department, the Service Club Council made renovation of Sylvan Park its first major project for 2009. Since then the Service Club Council and Mormon Helping Hands have taken on increasingly ambitious projects at Prospect Park, the Redlands Bowl, landscaping the Redlands Boulevard median, and last year, creating an entire park in a day at Heritage Park.
      Individuals, families, community groups, businesses and other organizations are encouraged to participate in the workday. For information or to sign up, visit www.redlandsservice.org or contact City of Redlands Volunteer Services Coordinator Elizabeth Marin at (909) 798-7540.

  4. Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
    • Start time: 10:00am
    • End date: Saturday, April 26th
    • End time: 02:00pm
    • On April 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Redlands Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Redlands Police Annex, 30 Cajon St. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
      Last October, Americans turned in 324 tons (over 647,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at over 4,114 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. When those results are combined with what was collected in its seven previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 3.4 million pounds—more than 1,700 tons—of pills.
      This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
      DEA is in the process of approving new regulations that implement the Safe and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” (that is, a patient or their family member or pet owner) of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances.
