Expect Knock On Door Saturday
September 24, 2009
Déjà vu all over again – Culver City Lion Jack Barton showed up at last week’s luncheon meeting with yet “… another body part encased in surgical wrap, setting off another health and welfare program. This time it was his left hand which he stabbed trying to put away a knife.” (There’s a lesson here: don’t get too close to Jack when he has any kind of utensil in his hand…) The Culver City Lions Club meets weekly at 12:15p.m. @ Sizzler restaurant across from the shiny new Westfield mall on Sepulveda.
If you’re an active voter, expect a knock on your door this Saturday from one of the many folks committed to the passage Measure EE (an $8 per month parcel tax on the November 3 ballot dedicated to Culver City schools). It’s estimated that if 100 volunteers start the afternoon off at 12:30 at Vets Park for a quick photo op, training, and then divvying up to assigned neighborhoods to get the word out it will be a two-hour commitment. Everyone’s then invited over to the Scott Zeidman home at 4 for a barbecue and debriefing. To participate, (you can bring friends, kids, and neighbors) contact Scott via email at Scott.Zeidman@LASlots.com, or phone (310) 925-8207.
Birthday greetings go out this week to Elias Cadji, Chuck Locko, Aubrey Provost, Mary Ann O'Neal, Michael Goldman, Jeff Gillette, Shelly Baloon, Russ Sigrid, Linda Moore, Buddy Carranza, Mimi Abramson, Leo Castro, Christine Tigner, Veronica von Grabow, Marianne Johnson, Sharon Aronoff, David Lozano, Tori Marple-Pereslete, Jill Vesci, Sean Doherty, Safika Erselcuk, Suzanne Guerrini, Anne Fletcher, Jason Sanchez, Nicole Rhoden, Maggie Memmott, Matthew Nabours, Fadwa Galal, Claudia Rodriguez, Ben Martin, Christina Denkins, David Stanton, Karen Bobrow, and Lesly Aispuro.

Cryptic reminder in the Culver City Rotary Club’s Reciprocator newsletter last week, to wit: “September 30th – Spouse’s Night – Think Greek. “ We’re sure to hear more about this later…
Here’s an opportunity to toast the great people-to-people programs of the Culver City Sister City Committee: on Sunday, October 4 from 3 p.m. to 6.
