Monday Briefing is back! With luck it will be here for a while. We’ll work to bring you a preview of what’s happening in the Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Westminster area as the week unfolds.
WEATHER: It will be perfect spring weather for most of the week. Sunny through Wednesday in the high 70s and low 80s, with a cooling trend through Saturday. Showers could hit the area by Sunday, with temperatures as low as the mid-60s
MEETINGS: Huntington Beach City Council meets on Monday with the regular session at 6 p.m. One item that caught our eye was an proposal on creating a community foundation to coordinate and support fund-raising activities among civic and other non-profit groups.
On Tuesday the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education meets at 7 p.m. The agenda looks pretty routine. The board will honor district participants in a recent bus “roadeo.”
EVENTS: Cinco de Mayo is Friday. That day celebrates the defeat of French forces by Mexican troops at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. While there are no major observances in our cities, there are Cinco de Mayo festivals scheduled in San Clemente and Lake Forest on Sunday.
SPORTS: The Anaheim Ducks are in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The fifth game will be played at Honda Center on Friday against the Edmonton Oilers.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be on the road until Friday when they start a three-game series with the Houston Astros at the Big A. The Astros are in first in the AL West; the Halos are in second, three games back.
ENTERTAINMENT: Here’s what looks to be fun this weekend.
- “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” is opening in cinemas this weekend.
- On local live stages, “The Music Man” continues Thursday through Sunday at the Gem Theater on Main Street in Garden Grove and “Hairspray” continues this weekend (Thursday to Sunday) at the Mainstage Theater at Golden West College in Huntington Beach.
