Rhonda Allen: Outstanding citizen helps La Loma, Oakmont neighborhoods in Modesto

April 18, 2014 

Residents in the La Loma and Oakmont neighborhoods would like to recognize an outstanding citizen, Don Reed. He regularly maintains a strip of neglected land along Encina Avenue, where he spends many hours mowing down unsightly weeds at his own expense. He is a hero to all of us who care about how our community looks. The work he does is not easy and is ongoing. The neighbors benefit from having a more desirable place to walk and even an access to a community garden. Thank you, Don! We really do appreciate your hard work and are glad you are part of our neighborhood.
