LOCALmotion – Jozelle Smith

No, Virginia – it’s not going to be at the mortuary.

Chamber members are invited to attend the event, set for 7:44 – 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 20, and network, market, promote, and showcase their businesses. The cost is $23 with prepaid reservation; $28 at the door, and members must RSVP by 1 PM Tuesday, February 19 by calling the Chamber office at (310 287-3850.
Congratulations to Vines on the Marycrest, founded by Culver City local Victor Abascal. Not only have the Abascals finished their beautiful tasting room at the Paso Robles vineyards, but they’re receiving recognition throughout the state for their terrific wines. (How about “Best Zinfandel on the Central Coast”?) They’ll be part of the San Francisco Chronicle Public Tasting this coming Saturday, February 16 from 2-5 p.m. at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, complete with stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The next day, Sunday, February 17 from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. you can enjoy the Paso Robles Rhone Rangers Experience. The day’s events will take place at Broken Earth Winery, a beautiful and spacious vineyard and winery off Highway 46 just east of Paso Robles. Join the seminar and lunch and hear Victor speak about his beloved Summertime rose. Participation in the seminar and lunch will be limited to the first 200 RSVPs. Both events sold out well in advance of the event last year and you’re encouraged to reserve space – if you still can! For more events and information, visit www.vinesonthemarycrest.com
It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it, and a lot of Culcitizens responded. The Culver City Education Foundation is sending its thanks to Public School 310, Culver City’s newest downtown restaurant, for donating all proceeds to Culver City schools from alcoholic beverage purchases sold during their soft opening in December. That translates to CCEF being presented a check for a whopping $5,687! Needless to say, that’s a creative and generous way for them to say they are glad to join our community!
Be nice now, Bruce! The Culver City Exchange Club has been asked for its assistance at the Ms. Senior Culver City Pageant on March 10 at the Senior Center beginning at 1:30 p.m. President Bruce Popkin will be a judge, and we know he’ll do a great job!
But – but – it’s the 4th of July!! Word has it that because of the work that is going to be done on the playing fields at Culver City High School, it is probable that there will be no 4th of July Fireworks Show this year. The future beyond this year is also in doubt, according to those in the know, notably Exchange Club Past President (and current Culver City Vice Mayor) Jeff Cooper…
