Here are five things residents of Pacific Palisades need to know today.
1. The Pacific Palisades Public Library is celebrating Melville's "Moby Dick" this month with a by "What Ever Happened to Moby Dick" art
contest for kids in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. All entries must be related to the theme, and they must be a collage or a sculpture
made out of recycled material. The
submission deadline is Friday, Sept. 20. For more information, visit the Palisades Branch Library at 861 Alma Real Drive.
Palisades Charter High School's football team will continue with its
fundraiser from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday at The Yogurt Shoppe located at 873 Swarthmore Ave. Fifteen percent of all sales during that time will benefit the football team.
3. We're trying something new on Pacific Palisades Patch: open blogs. With
our new platform, Patch sites lost our community galleries. Instead, we
have open blogs, where we can invite readers to enter posts about all
sorts of topics. Our first open blog is a place for photos to
replace the old galleries. Share the Santa Monica scene by creating your
own post on the Pali Pix blog. The first post tells you how.
4. If you're wondering what traffic is like in your neighborhood, check out our live traffic conditions in and around Pacific Palisades here.
