LOCALmotion – Jozelle Smith

urlFox Hills is getting active!! (Does it have anything to do with a proposal for some really big development in the area?…) The Fox Hills Neighborhood Association is meeting this Thursday, July 28 at 7:00 p.m. in the Garden Room at the Veterans’ Memorial Building, 4117 Overland Ave. to “Reimagine Fox Hills.” Light refreshments will be served. For those unable to attend, they’ll be updating their website and including pictures. A second meeting is scheduled for August 25. Visit www.fhnacc.org for more information. ALSO – Fox Hills residents will be (literally) getting down to earth on Saturday, July 30 when they meet for the “13th Annual Fox Hills Park Pride Day,” where they’ll be planting Junipers and cleaning the park from 9:30 a.m. – 12 noon. Gloves, tools and lunch will all be provided. Everyone will be meeting at the benches by the playground at the Park, 5809 Green Valley Circle. You’re asked to RSVP via email to [email protected]. (If you have extra travel toiletries the Association is collecting them for the Culver City Homeless Commission. (Special note: you’ll have the opportunity to buy a Culver City Centennial pin for $5.00 at lunch time, proceeds to the Culver-Palms Family YMCA).
Interested in the field of law enforcement but not ready to leave your current job? The Culver City Reserve Police Corps is comprised of non-paid, volunteer individuals who perform the same duties and possess the same powers of arrest as regular Police Officers while on duty. CCPD is currently seeking qualified Level I and Level II candidates for Patrol duties in its Operations Bureau. In addition to meeting POST requirements, each candidate must pass a written exam, oral exam, physical exam, meet the physical agility requirements, pass a polygraph test and be examined by a psychologist to determine competency. Reserve Police Officers, having met all qualifications and having been appointed, are required to work 20 hours per month (two 10 hour shifts in Patrol). Also included is the mandatory attendance at the monthly training meeting. Range qualifications are also mandatory. The Culver City Police Department will provide uniforms and safety equipment (including firearms). For further information, contact Sergeant William Browne at (310)-253-6260.
When is a Library more than a Library? When it’s the Culver City Julian Dixon Library, located at 4975 Overland Ave. Not only do they have the beautifully remodeled facility chock-full of books and comfortable reading spaces, but also a regular kids’ Tuesday Storytime from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. that’s a special time to make new friends and share stories, songs, play, art activities and more. (No registration required. For children up to 8 years old. Babies, toddlers and families are welcome); and Wednesday’s “We Tell Stories” at 2:00 p.m. with terrific actors that include kids from the audience in their presentations; but here’s something different: This Saturday, July 30 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. you can sample and learn how to make Kimbap sushi at “Korean Cooking and Poetry.” While instructor Tanya teaches you how to make Kimbap, you will learn how to write a “List Poem.” A list of ingredients will be provided. Sign-ups required and space is limited. Contact the Library at (310) 559-1676 to reserve your spot.
Our friends at Jeff Olan Casting & Productions have asked us to help spread the word: They are seeking Multi-Racial Newborn Babies for “Grey’s Anatomy” and compensation is $250.00 per day per baby for multiple scenes in the next few episodes. If they have entertainment work permits already that is a plus, but JOC can help take care of preparing those if anyone knows of multi- racial newborn babies, boys or girls. They are seeking twins or triplets, but will look at individual ones as well. Parents are urged to send photos of your babies with their height, and weight, as well as date of birth and your phone number to [email protected].
Buckingham Business Park was rocking out this past Sunday – that’s where the Agape International Spiritual Center is located, and it just happened to be Choir Sunday AND Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith’s birthday. Services here are always energetic and uplifting, but when the Rev is doing his birthday pushups to music from the choir and congregation, you just can’t beat it!!
Lots of places to visit on Facebook these days, but one of the most fun (especially for us old timers) is “You Know You’re From Culver City If…” Lots of fun pictures that will bring back memories to many local folks, we’re sure!
Birthday wishes go out this week to Ellen Plach, Addison Myers, Norman Auslander, Grace Elliott (still in Sydney, Australia!), Elaine Struhl, and Marsha Heath. If you’d like your (or a friend or family member’s) birthday mentioned here, just send the information to [email protected] and we’ll be happy to post it!
