April 22 RHA General meeting

This month’s RHA homeowners meeting on April 22 will feature city councilman Tim Goodrich to discuss current city government projects and issues.  There’s a lot on the City Council’s plate this year, and many decisions will affect Riviera homeowners.  You’re welcome to bring your questions and concerns to the meeting and find out what your city and homeowners association is up to.

Also on our agenda,  is an area representative from Heal the Bay, Jose Bacallao, who will spend the last part of Earth Day with us, discussing the state of local beaches in the Torrance/Redondo area.  He will share some insights into the defeat of the Hermosa Oil Initiative, and whether there may be future attempts to bring oil drilling to the area.

Finally, an annual highlight of the RHA is the awarding of college scholarships to applicants selected by an RHA committee, who examined many worthy high school seniors to determine this year’s awardees.  Come to the meeting to learn who this year’s scholars are and cheer them on to greater academic heights. 

There will also be updates on the Legado project (planned for the Bristol Farms property on PCH), the landscaping along PCH across from South High, and other news you can use.   And refreshments!

Torrance Relay for Life

This 24-hour event will be held April 25th and 26th at South High School from 9 a.m. to 9 a.m.  It is truly an exciting and inspirational festival with teams from all parts of the community gathered together to celebrate those who have survived cancer and remember those we have lost. In addition to fundraising, each team member agrees to spend one hour walking (or jogging) around the track.  And this continues for 24 hours because “cancer never sleeps.”

If you have any questions, please contact Pam Popovich at (310) 375-8729 or pampop1@verizon.net. The easiest way to contribute is online at the American Cancer Society’s Torrance Relay site: www.relayforlife.org/torranceca
