Sunday, February 10, 2013 | 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM   
Torrance First Baptist Church - Gym - 2118 W. Carson St., Torrance
Community Blood Drive Your parent is going in for open-heart surgery, will there be enough blood? Your child has been in an accident and needs blood; does the hospital have the right type? Our nation's blood supply is sustained entirely by voluntary donations, yet fewer than 5% of Americans eligible to give blood do so each year. In the gift of blood . . . there is the absence of tangible immediate rewards in monetary or non-monetary forms; the absence of penalties, financial or otherwise, and the knowledge among donors that their donations are for unnamed strangers without distinctions of age, sex, medical condition, income, class, religion, or ethnic group.... The generosity displayed by blood donors, like other virtues, is learned over time. We acquire virtues first by acting, just as we do in the case of acquiring crafts...for example, by building we become builders. Take the first step to spur one another on to love and good deeds...stop by and give the gift of life that will stay in our community at Torrance First Baptist Church (tfbclife.org)/Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center (www.providence.org) Blood Drive, Sunday, February 10, 8:30 am - 2:30 pm, in the gym at 2118 W. Carson Street, Torrance. Call (310) 328-5030 for appointment…walk-ins welcomed!

Juanita Millender-McDonald Community Center 801 East Carson St., Carson
"At What Cost? The Unintended Consequences of Declining Revenues" (Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.) Since the recession began a few years ago, government at all levels has had to watch their revenues decline while expenses continued. One of the consequences has been that the federal and state governments have taken action to balance their budgets by cutting revenues to local governments. The cities and county are literally where the rubber meets the road and there is no other entity that they can go to for additional revenue. Their budgets have to be in balance. Expert speakers, panelists & moderators include: * Girish Lakshman, Vice President, Amazon * Fred Silva, Senior Policy Advisor, California Forward * Bobbi Peckham, Partner, Peckham & McKenney * Jane H. Adams, Executive Director, California Park & Recreation Society * Stephen Finnegan, Manager Government Affairs, Automobile Club of Southern California * Ed Medrano, Gardena Police Chief and President of the LA County Police Chiefs’ Association * Steve Burrell, Former Hermosa Beach City Manager * David Brodsly, Managing Director, KNN Public Finance * Larry Kosmont, President and CEO, Kosmont Companies * Richard Bernard, Senior Vice President, Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates * And state and federal legislators who have been invited between 8:45 and 9:45 am RSVP’s required before February 19, 2013 Register online: www.southbaycities.org
