Sea Scout Golf Tournament

The 4th annual Sea Scout charity golf tournament will take place at Recreation Park on Saturday, Oct.16.

The fundraising campaign is a 7 iron golf tournament for the Long Beach Area Council Sea Base, which runs the Sea Scouts program. The event proceeds provide financial relief for the parents and the Area Council.

According to Albert Guerra, president of the Long Beach Area Council, “Every year we register for the Sea Scouts,” adding, “It’s hard when they’re already paying for the boat maintenance, the fuel and the repairs, too.”

Guerra said the golf idea was a way to offset those demands.

“The idea was to donate any funds we made, to the council directly,” adding, “We actually do really well.”

Guerra credits last year’s tournament for helping to raise approximately $8,000 for the council.

He also gives credit to the Los Cerritos Bahia Yacht Club for helping the tournament be a success.

“Our friends at Bahia partnered with us and let us have a luncheon after the tournament.”

The course is located at 5000 E. 7th St. The cost is $95 per person and includes beverages, lunch and an Awards Banquet.

Printers Fair

The 13th Annual Los Angeles Printers Fair will be held Nov. 6 and 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Carson. It is the largest annual celebration of letterpress, book arts and paper in the west.

With the backdrop of the museum’s world-famous collection of antique presses, the fair annually brings together 90 artistic vendors and 2,000 visitors to explore the creative worlds of handmade books and printing.

Exhibitors include some of the finest letterpress and printmaking artists in the Southwest and beyond, offering custom posters, prints, hand-printed cards, memorabilia, decorative papers and antiquarian books for sale. Throughout the museum’s galleries, visitors can also print their own keepsakes on antique letterpresses, have their name cast in printer’s type, make paper by hand or even screen print their own shirt.

All proceeds from the fair go to the International Printing Museum, a non-profit institution dedicated to the heritage, preservation and advancement of the printing arts. The featured artist this year is Tony Guadagnolo.

Daisy Lane Parade

In partnership with the Wrigley Area Neighborhood Alliance (WANA) and the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association (BKBIA), Councilmember Roberto Uranga, Council District 7, announced the 67th Annual Daisy Lane Parade: Reimagined. To ensure safety and to be in compliance with state and local health guidance, the parade will be a bit different this year: a shortened parade line-up will follow a snaking path through the Wrigley Neighborhood, bringing the parade directly to the residents of Wrigley.

The reimagined parade will be inclusive of the original parade route and the Daisy Lane Parade decorations will be placed on the Daisy Median. The parade route will be bounded by Wardlow Road and Pacific Coast Highway on the North and South and Magnolia Avenue and the Los Angeles River on the East and West. The event will take place on Saturday, Dec. 11, from noon to 4 p.m.
