Mayor Gutierrez to Live Stream
Veterans Day Remarks
As he did with his annual State of the City remarks in August, Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley, will live stream his Veterans Day remarks this year on the City's Facebook and YouTube accounts and TV channel MV3 on Wednesday, November 11, at 11 a.m. The City's usual event at the Civic Center Veterans Memorial has been changed due to virus safety concerns.
City Invites Residents to a Virtual
"Community Month of Service"
As virus safety restrictions have required the postponement of community clean-up events this year, the City has created some fun virtual beautification events for the month of November that support the community's spirit of volunteerism.

Keep MoVal Beautiful - Find That Sign!, Nov. 7-30 -- Creates awareness of the currently adopted Keep MoVal Beautiful streets, parks and trails. Residents may win prizes for posting selfies with the signs.
Keep MoVal Beautiful - Residential Awards, Nov. 9-16 -- Awards will be presented to residential single-family homes within the City that capture water-wise landscaping, water-use efficiency, good maintenance practices, cleanliness and curb appeal.
Celebrate America Recycles Day with a Superhero!, Nov. 9-20 -- For the youthful at heart, the EcoHero Show dives deep into environmental topics such as used-oil recycling, beverage container recycling, and litter abatement. Watch the video to find out how each of us can become an EcoHero.
Keep MoVal Beautiful TrashDash - Plogging for Our Community, Nov. 16-24 -- TrashDash is intended to heighten awareness and amplify the benefits of beautifying our community, eliminating litter, and increasing recycling. Plogging is an environmental fitness craze in which people integrate the collection of litter with their jogging workout.
Learn more about each of these events and how to participate at the Community Month of Service web page.
