Congratulations to Rev. James Daly, new pastor at Westside Unity Church. Rev. Daly has been warmly received by the congregation, and visitors are welcome to come visit and share in the expanded energy at Westside Unity, located at 10724 Barman Ave., near the corner of Overland Ave. Sunday services are at 10:00 a.m.
Culver City Rotarians are giving a new look to their Annual 10K Fundraiser by combining it with a Casino Night that will be held on Saturday, November 3rd. Sounds and could be VERY rewarding!
The Culver City Garden Club will meet this Tuesday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Star Education, 10117 Jefferson Blvd. (between Raintree & Duquesne). There will be the usual Plant “Show, Tell & Ask” and Raffle tables [members bring the plants]. The presentation will be “Geraniums, Pelargoniums & More” with Matt-Dell Tufenkian, Co-owner Dominus Plantarum/L.A. International Geranium Society. Refreshments will be provided by member Lorrie Blech, and visitors are invited.
Sad to note the passing of Bob Wassertheur, long-time Exchange Club member, former Culver City Police Department Sergeant, Chief of Security at Culver City High School, and more. Bob was a U.S. Navy veteran of the Korean War, and before coming to Culver City served on the El Segundo Police Department. Bob, 81, in hospice care in Oceanside at the time of his death, is mourned by wife Darlene, sons Robert, Randy, Jim and granddaughter Audrey, along with stepsons Dan and Michael and step grandchildren Jami, Cory and Kelly. His sharp wit and – yes – sarcasm, provided many a laugh to Culverites who knew him. His ashes were scattered in San Diego this week and a memorial service will be held in Culver City, date to be announced.
The Culver City Friends of the Library will be having its annual Membership Drive, Ice Cream Social AND Book Sale, all taking place this Saturday, October 6 from 1:3:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Culver City Julian Dixon Library 4975 Overland Ave. With every new or renewed membership on the day of the event you will get a free bowl of ice cream with all your favorite toppings.

This Wednesday, October 3 from 10-11:30 a.m., the Culver-Palms Family YMCA is presenting “Explore the Ballot Measures,” a discussion of the pros and cons of the 2012 ballot initiatives. Odille Hansen will lead in a discussion of the state, county and Culver City propositions that will appear on the ballot on election day, November 6. Attendees will receive a handout package containing a summary of what each measure’s pros and cons. Odille is a former member of the Rand Corp and a long time Y member, and has reportedly “…done this before and is quite skilled in leading discussions in which opinions have a tendency to get heated. She’ll keep it under control.” The Culver-Palms Family YMCA is located at 4500 Sepulveda Blvd. Call (310) 390-3604 for additional information. The event is free and open to the community.
