Love where you live!
LA MESA -- The earliest sign of the holidays coming to the Jewel of the Hills is the sight of John Vigil and his band of helpers spending Saturday morning stringing Christmas lights through the trees along La Mesa Boulevard.
Vigil heads this effort each year for the La Mesa Village Merchants Association and then, eventually, he leads the Christmas in the Village parade in top hat and tails. He and his supporting cast are spending every Saturday morning from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. working his way down the boulevard. Volunteers and needed and welcomed.
Just meet up Saturday mornings near Palm and La Mesa Boulevard to pitch in.
"We do the trees first and then we'll start in on the buildings,'' Vigil bellowed from his perch. "We'll keep doing it right up to Christmas.''
