Aww, it’s too late to sign up for the special price, so guess we’ll go have to go and just watch! A Fulcrum Adventures Open Ropes Course Training will be conducted on a special ropes course at Botts Park in Culver City on Sunday, June 17 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. The high ropes challenge course is located near the Interpretive Nature Trail, where participants can enjoy (gulp) city and ocean views from the 50-ft. climbing wall. There’s also power pole, multi-vine, beam walk and trapeze jump components on the course, open even to kids five years and up. Additional sessions will take place in July and August you can explore by visiting www.fulcrumadventures.com. Again – we’ll just watch….
Along with all the Culver City Rotary Club’s good works (not just local but,as reported by President Ann Murakami, a neo-natal clinic in India funded with a matching grant that helped over 350 babies in its first three months) club members are set to enjoy a popular Hollywood Park Day on June 15th. The group is looking forward to hearing Father Greg Boyle from Home Boys Industries, who will speak at their June 27 meeting.
Looking toward the Culver City Sister City Committee’s quarterly dinner meeting and Installation at Tina Mollica’s home on June 6, President-elect Marla Wolkowitz is putting the word out to members to consider more active participation. Standing Committees, individual Sister City Committees (Iksan City, Kaizuka, Lethbridge and Uruapan) and the Casa Hogar Nueva Vida Orphanage Special Committee are all looking for additional energy to help expand the almost-50
year old organization’s outreach.
Ah, the diva gene doth prevail: The Culver City Exchange Club’s speaker last weekwas supposed to be Lisa Bloom, Gloria Allred’s daughter. She was a no-show, but the Club had plenty of good solid business to deal with, including Car Show reports, 4th of July Fireworks Show assignments, and its upcoming installation at the Wilshire Country Club on June 16th.
Smaller is often better, and the Culver City Chamber of Commerce is starting a new program titled “Leaders,” offering an opportunity to hear from local leaders on how they have succeeded in business and organizational leadership. “Leaders” will be limited to just 30 attendees to allow a more personal connection to speakers, who, in his/her own way, make Culver City the place to be and to do business. First up this Thursday, June 7, is Steven Ehrlich, Ehrlich Architects. Ehrlich
Architects has won eight National AIA Design Awards and was named 2003 Firm of the Year by the AIA California Council. The 12 noon luncheon will take place at the Courtyard by Marriott Los Angeles, Westside, 6333 Bristol Parkway. RSVP by 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 5 – cost is $30.00 prepaid; $40.00 at the door. Call the Chamber office at (310) 287-3850 for additional information
or to reserve your place at the table.
