Dear Troop 2 Parents,

I am not sure how you all feel about what happened today in Santa Monica, but if you are like me, you are disappointed and appalled at the people who looted our stores, destroyed people’s property, and defaced several of our buildings and businesses.

It is unfortunate that bad actors used a peaceful protest as cover to commit these reprehensible acts.

However, I think the key to recovery is to quickly clean up the mess created to get our city back up and running.

Personally, I will be loading up my SUV First thing Monday morning with a couple of brooms, garbage bags, paint rollers and paint primer to help the clean up.

My plan is to start at city hall to clean up the broken glass and hopefully primer paint over some of the obscenities painted on our City Hall and Courthouse buildings. I then plan to go to the promenade and finally Santa Monica Place and offer help in cleaning up. 

I will be proudly wearing one of my SMLL Board Member baseball caps, the SMLL practice hoodie from 2019, and a Santa Monica Troop 2 T-Shirt.

If you have the time and availability, please come by to say hello, lend a hand, or simply send me a text at (310)717-0075 for encouragement.

If you are moved, please feel free to forward this to any other SMLL families that feel the same way and would be interested in helping out our city in a time of need. 

Best regards,

John Matise
