Next Meeting: June 28, 2017

at the Hermosa Beach Community Center
710 Pier Avenue, Room #4
in Hermosa Beach, CA 90254

June 28, 2017
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Our agenda is not fully set as of yet, but we will be conducting the election for our club officers for the coming year. According to our By-Laws: "Every member present at the June meeting who has paid his or her dues at least 30 days prior to the meeting, or at the previous regular meeting, or a renewing member, may vote for officers." This is a very important election as these officers will lead us into the 2018 election cycle, where we will be working to turn the U.S. House of Representatives...BLUE.

Our fiscal year ends in June and starts in July. As such, dues for the 2017/18 year are due and payable now. You may bring a check to the meeting or pay on line through our web site at www.beachcitiesdems.org.

We look forward to seeing everyone on June 28.

Dency and Moira Nelson will be hosting a fund raiser for State Senator Ben Allen at their beautiful and sustainable home on June 25, from 4-6 PM. Click here for more information and to RSVP.

The Beach Cities Democratic Club is located along the beautiful coastline of the South Bay area of Los Angeles County, California, U.S.A., from the Hollywood Riviera section of Torrance north through Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach to El Porto and El Segundo and points inland.

The BCDC meets at 7:00 PM on the fourth Wednesday of every month (except December, when we enjoy a holidays party) at the Hermosa Beach Community Center on Pier Avenue. We participate in many local events every year.


The BCD fiscal year goes from July 1 through June 30. Dues are $25 per person or $40 for a couple or family.

Correction to the November 2012 newsletter:
The photograph on page 1 was taken on Sunday morning, October 28, not in August, at the "Green Idea House" belonging to Robert and Monica Fortunato in Hermosa Beach. It was taken by Robert Fortunato, who along with Phil Friedl and Dency Nelson hosted the joint event for Congressman Waxman and Al Muratsuchi. Phil was the Chairman of the Hermosa Beach Green Task Force and Robert & Monica have created this amazing net-zero energy home www.greenideahouse.com. The event was very well attended by about 70 primarily Hermosa Beach neighbors and friends. It is also the event where Moira and Dency brought their friend, Paula Poundstone, who did about 10 minutes of “stand-up” comedy and gave a pitch of support for both candidates. My apologies for the incorrect caption. -- The Editor
