On Saturday, September 25, 2011 Leimert Park Beat held a celebration to mark a milestone: the news and social networking site has surpassed 1,000 members to its site. Founder and publisher Eddie North-Hager hosted the celebration in The Community Build Courtyard in Leimert Park Village.
There was food by Earlez Grille, entertainment by DJ Tendaji Lathan and for the kids, an appearance by Geebo the Clown.
Eighth District Councilman Bernard Parks spoke at the event which celebrated the vibrancy of the neighborhood, considered the cultural center of African American Los Angeles.
The event was sponsored by Heather Lee Presha, a realtor who is a major presence on the site, and Wells Fargo Bank.
Leimert Park Beat is an important and needed resource for the community. The South LA Report congratulates Eddie North-Hager and his many contributors and readers. Onto 2,000 members!
