DON'T MISS OUR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1ST MEETING
At our Thursday, December 1 meeting we will have two great presentations. City Attorney Charles Parkin will discuss what the passage of the ballot measures approving the sale of marijuana means to Long Beach. Councilwoman Suzie Price will discuss the use of the revenue created from the marijuana sales.
At each of our meetings we feature a Belmont Shore business. At our November meeting Matt and Eric, owners of Legends, told us about their business and community involvement. They also announced that anyone who presents their Friends of Belmont Shore Membership Card is eligible for a 10% discount. If you are not a member or have not renewed do so at our December 1 meeting. We will give you a Membership Card. Tavern on 2 is our guest at our December meeting.
As most of you are aware, one of our Holiday Projects is helping those in need of clothing. We are collecting socks. At our November meeting, we collected 200 pair. Girl Scout Troop 683 has been collecting socks for a month and will donate the at our meeting. We will also learn more about their Troop. Please bring socks with you to donate to our Holiday Project.
