Are you current?

Greetings Riviera residents,

Our fall membership drive is in full swing – have you renewed your dues?  Please continue your support of the RHA with either a one year membership at $25 or a two year membership at $45.  Your dues will allow the RHA to continue supporting and defending the needs of residents – representing the Hollywood Riviera to our local and state officials, informing you with our newsletters, providing scholarships to local high school seniors (see below), and more.  As postage and printing costs go up, we sometimes struggle to provide the printed newsletters which so many enjoy receiving (each newsletter is also made available online).  We also would like to increase the number of scholarships provided to our most deserving students.  Therefore we use this fall membership drive to gauge the ability to provide the volunteer (no one gets paid!) efforts that serve our community during the year.

Please give to support and preserve the Hollywood Riviera – jewel of the South Bay!  click here

Daylight $$avings

Save some of that daylight straight to your bank account!  Learn to harness all that solar radiation at the upcoming Town Hall Forum co-sponsored by Environmental Priorities Network on Saturday November 4 starting at 9:00AM.  Local resident Jim Montgomery, who spoke at the RHA meeting last year, giving an excellent survey of past and future NASA Mars missions, will be a featured speaker.   If you are interested in learning more about rooftop solar and/or plug-in electric vehicles and how to take advantage of them this free event is for you.  Click here for more information on attending.
By the way, we pick up an hour Sunday as we switch to PST from PDT.

Vets in need, neighbors indeed

Congressman Ted Lieu has invited members of the RHA and other homeowners associations to attend this community forum aimed at establishing a greater understanding between local veterans and the friends and neighbors they fought for. Veterans are invited to share what their service means to them, and non-veterans are invited to attend, listen, and learn.
It’s scheduled to last only 90 minutes on Friday, November 10 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Wadsworth Theater on the West LA VA Campus.  There’s lots of free parking next to the theater.  Click on the link above to RSVP.

Veterans Day is November 11.

This year’s model scholar

The RHA community often gets thanks directly from our scholarship winners.  This from one of this year’s award winners:

Thank you so much for choosing me as the recipient of the RHA scholarship.  It’s a very large amount of money and it will be very beneficial to me for the next four years.  I plan on using the money to buy a laptop that is required for my major (construction management).  Once again thank you so much, it means an enormous amount to receive this scholarship.
 –  Sincerely, Evan Tookey
