Have you seen the two giant “CELEBRATE 30 YEARS” signs at City Hall? Today is Valentine’s Day and appropriately the official kick-off of #LOVETemecula, a 2019 citywide initiative that Temecula Mayor Mike Naggar announced will spotlight the community’s loving spirit as Temecula celebrates its 30th year of cityhood.
Mayor Naggar states, “It took 30 years of dedication, hard work and a lot of love from our community, engaged citizens, families and businesses to build our City, so this year we are shining a spotlight on what, exactly, we all LOVE about our beautiful City.”
There are infinite reasons to LOVE Temecula. Its picturesque vineyards, award-winning wineries, themed City parks, championship golf courses, charming Old Town, rolling hills, morning mist, afternoon ocean breezes, the shopping experience at Promenade Temecula, world-class entertainment at Pechanga Resort & Casino, diverse restaurant choices, family-friendly citywide events, quaint neighborhoods, friendly neighbors, equestrian trails, fun parades, community theater, museums, top rated schools, maximum public safety, the people, inclusiveness, cultured tourists, generous business community, scenic mountainous backdrop, proximity to the ocean, hiking, biking, the weather and endless hometown LOVE.
“I love it all in Temecula, but what melts my heart is our uniquely close-knit inclusive community of individuals and families with special needs; and I am so very proud to be their advocate,” adds Mayor Naggar. The City of Temecula will be emphasizing the special talents that these individuals and emerging adults can bring to the workforce throughout the year, including a special needs workforce luncheon scheduled for the Spring. “Their special abilities far exceed their special needs, and it’s exciting to see our business community recognize this as well. That’s what I LOVE most about Temecula,” Naggar adds.
