The Youth Development, Education, & Recreational Resources Committee met on December 6, 2007 in Runyon Canyon from 3:30 p.m. until 5:45 p.m. Twenty people attended. Participating organizations included GROWTH Foundation, Hollywood PAL, and Recreation & Parks. We talked with dog walkers about the issues P.U.P project addresses, passed out fliers, secured “Deposit Poop Here” signs to all park trash cans, and passed out biscuits to any dog that wanted one. We didn’t want them to feel like we were picking on them! The event was a successful ‘Round 2’ of P.U.P. Our group will convene monthly to expand the P.U.P project.
