Next Meeting

Manhattan Bread and Bagel
1812 North Sepulveda Boulevard
Manhattan Beach
Wednesday, January 27
7:30 PM

We have a very special speaker this month. Janice Martin, director of programs and volunteers for Habitat for Humanity of Los Angeles, will bring us up to date on the building projects initiated by Habitat. She also has a wealth of information on the housing situation in the Los Angeles area. As you know, Habitat corrals volunteers to build houses for low income families who also contribute "sweat equity" to the project. President Jimmy Carter is well- known for his work for this group. Ms. Martin is looking for volunteers to help build but also she is looking for persons who can volunteer time in the Habitat office at 177th Street and Figueroa in Gardena.

Our January Celebration

Our holiday party this year exceeded all expectations! BCDC joined up with the 53rd AD for a fabulous potluck at Ray and Carol Waters's home on January 9. You'd think everybody would be done with celebrating; on the contrary, guests brought great entrees, salads, and desserts; there was a wine bar on the patio (with good weather to accommodate); and it was a nice touch not to worry about holiday obligations. Speakers included Senator Jenny Oropeza on the trials and tribulations of the Legislature, Ted Lieu on his campaign for Attorney General, Jeff DuClos to thank us for supporting his successful bid for Hermosa Beach City Council, and our own Ray Waters, now on the Hermosa School Board. Tony Hale thanked all the year's volunteers.
