John Waring, Glendora: Facts on deep-sea fishing
A proud and community-oriented citizen of Glendora, California, John Waring enjoys supporting local and regional initiatives, including area chapters of the Surfrider Foundation and the American Red Cross. In the future, John Waring hopes to work with the Glendora Adopt-A-Park initiative.
The Adopt-A-Park program offers private citizens and local organizations the opportunities to clean and preserve city-owned neighborhood parks and facilities. The program focuses on education as much as it does on park preservation and maintenance by showing citizens the amount of time and energy that goes into up-keeping publicly owned parks and athletic structures.
To adopt a park, a group leader or individual first fills out the necessary paperwork (available online or at the city offices). All members of a group must sign a volunteer waiver agreement; minors need a parent or guardian signature to participate. City staff then approves or declines the adoption. If approved, the adopting group or individual must undergo city-led training and must agree to follow certain safety guidelines, as well as park and facility rules and regulations. Volunteers may perform any number of tasks in the week-to-week maintenance of their adopted park, including litter collection, graffiti removal, planting, and painting.
A lifelong sports fan, John Waring plays a variety of sports during his youth in Glendora, California. As an adult, he has spent time traveling to some of the most famous baseball stadiums in the United States, among them the Los Angeles Angels spring training facility in Tempe, Arizona.
The Angels have held spring training at the Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe since 1993. Operated by the City of Tempe Parks and Recreation Department, the stadium’s seating capacity is 9315, which includes lawn seats, suites, temporary bleachers, and seating for individuals with disabilities. Since extensive renovations in 2005, the new stadium includes six and a half practice fields, as well as the main Gene Autry Field, named after the former Angels’ owner. Located conveniently near Interstate 10 and Highway 60, Tempe Diablo Stadium is only ten minutes from Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, making it easily accessible for visitors to the city.
