New Ralphs Fresh Fare Opens in Sherman Oaks
A Ralphs Fresh Fare supermarket unveiled its new Sherman Oaks location at 14049 Ventura Boulevard. Ralphs celebrated their grand opening followed by a brief ribbon cutting. The new store will bring jobs to the Sherman Oaks Community by employing about 240 full and part time associates. It will open daily from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. offering residents the experience of one-stop shopping convenience, quality products, new services and great value. Councilmember LaBonge was honored to be a part of this special day and presented the store with an official proclamation from the City of Los Angeles. Councilmember LaBonge participates in the Ribbon Cutting.
The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation hosted Fahrenheit 2014 for Angelenos to have the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the firefighters and paramedics of the LAFD. Citizens were able to engage in an up-close and personal encounter with LAFD. Councilmember LaBonge and his staff would like to thank all the men and women who protect us by risking their lives every day. You all truly serve the City of Los Angeles with courage, integrity, and pride. Thank you for continuing to embody the most meaningful function of city government: public safety.
