Fairplex and representatives from throughout the city of Diamond Bar have joined together in establishing a community committee to offer mutual support and cultivate a greater relationship between the two entities. The new group will also work closely to promote Diamond Bar Day at the L.A. County Fair, scheduled for
Fairplex has always considered Diamond Bar to be a special neighbor. With the formation of a community committee, the friendship is solidified. Comprised of residents, city officials and community leaders, including Councilman Wen Chang, City Manager Linda Lowry and community representative Kathleen Newe, the group will work directly with Fairplex staff.
Among the committee’s efforts are promoting Fairplex and the L.A. County Fair at city functions and encouraging Diamond Bar schools to participate in the FairKids Discovery Club field trip program. Perhaps the biggest push will be to get Diamond Bar residents to visit the Fair on Diamond Bar Day – a wonderful celebration that truly emits a hometown feel. Residents will receive a coupon for discount admission and the city will be feted with a parade and a horse race at Fairplex Park specially named in its honor, and the town’s community hero will be recognized. The city will also get a chance to highlight all its great attributes at the Community Expo.
