About Town - Redondo Beach
Open house set
A community safety fair and police department open house is scheduled Oct. 3 at the Redondo Beach Civic Center and Police Facility. Activities begin at 10 a.m. and conclude at 3 p.m.
Included in the event's schedule are tours of the police station, displays of police equipment and fire apparatus, safety and crime prevention exhibitions, entertainment and free food.
The fifth annual event incorporates a "mini fun-fest," said Redondo Beach Chief of Police Mel Nichols. Components of the city's fire and police departments such as K-9, DARE and SWAT will present displays and exhibits. The fair is the kickoff event for Fire Prevention Week; October is Crime Prevention Week.
Boat Parade planned
Plans are afoot, boaters are being courted, and spectators can now seek preferred seating for the 8th annual King Harbor Christmas Boat Parade Dec. 18.
Sponsored by the King Harbor Yacht Club, the parade will be at 5:30 p.m. in the main channel of the harbor. This year's theme: "Christmas Past, Present and Future."
Actress Victoria Rowell will preside as grand marshal, parade officials announced this week.
While the parade is free, there are limited opportunities for "premiere" viewing at restaurants and hotels along the harbor. Seats on spectator boats, featuring wine and cheese and after-event fish chowder dinner, can be reserved for $25. Proceeds benefit the Rowell Foster Children's Positive Plan, Sea Scout Ship 618, and the King Harbor Youth Foundation. Information, call (310) 376-2459.
Volunteers are being sought for the Redondo Beach Educational Foundation's activity slate, and two meetings, Oct. 6 and Oct. 13, will be held to inform and educate prospective helpers. The first session will be at Washington Elementary School, the second at Alta Vista Elementary School. Both meetings start at 7 p.m.
The foundation is a non-profit, private group governed by a volunteer board of directors which raises funds and awards grants to local educators, schools and special programs within the Redondo Unified School District. Information, call (310) 784-7751.
