RIPON – Mayor Eden ‘Red’ Nutt will lead a discussion Tuesday with hopes of encouraging more volunteers to donate their time and services for the upcoming “Love Ripon.”

The community-wide volunteer day is scheduled for Saturday. Sept. 29.

Those helping will be able to engage in a variety of projects. For example, they can offer food to the hungry, visit convalescent homes, donate blood, help renovate a house, and take time to clean or spruce up the city parks or projects such as the one take place at Stouffer Field.

Since the beginning part of the summer, the Ripon Community Athletic Foundation has been working 16-hour days on renovating the outdoor stadium.

“Love Ripon” was made possible by the Ripon Ministerial Association.

This and other topics are scheduled to take place at the Ripon City Hall Council Chambers, beginning at 7 p.m.

In other discussion items:

 

• Council members may possibly approve the Chamber of Commerce’s offer to pay for the purchase, installation, and maintenance of rope lights on the downtown street lamp while authorizing the city to pay for the electricity used by the rope lights.

• Elected leaders could also give their OK on the Hospice of San Joaquin to host a Tree of Lights event in Ripon.
