General Services hosts annual Custodian Appreciation Day

On Nov. 1, 2019, General Services held its 21st annual Custodian Appreciation Day and Custodial Service Awards downtown.

Custodians, Dept. Directors, elected officials and union representatives gathered in the Ronald Deaton Civic Auditorium inside the LAPD headquarters and on the south lawn of City Hall for the appreciation event.
