Fall Game Day | Pali High
The Palisades Charter High School Palisades Ambassadors are gearing up for a virtual Fall Game Day on November 21 at 1 p.m.
Students in kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to join the Palisades Ambassadors for Pictionary, Scattergories and Bingo.
“Through this amazing program, Pali students connect to the community through volunteer events, meetings and community gatherings,” Palisades Ambassador Grace Binder wrote ahead of the event. “Through this virtual environment, elementary school students have been missing out on fun school events and activities, such as Halloween festivals and fall celebrations. Because of this, I wanted to engage elementary school students through a Fall Game Day.”
A Zoom link will be provided after RSVP to bit.ly/ambgameday.
Online Community Meeting | Pacific Palisades
The Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness will host an online community meeting on Monday, November 16, from 7 to 8:15 p.m. via Zoom on the topic of “A Conundrum: Helping Mentally Ill Homeless People.”
The featured speaker will be LaTina Jackson, deputy director at LA County Department of Mental Health.
“Members of our task force First Responders Committee report seeing more mentally ill homeless individuals on our streets, people who are so mentally ill that they can’t recognize or accept that they need help,” PPTFH representatives shared ahead of the meeting. “Our November meeting will address this problem with speakers who work for the Department of Mental Health in their Homeless Outreach Mobile Engagement teams. Join us to learn about the new DMH pilot program to help gravely disabled homeless individuals who refuse mental health services.”

‘Wild Places’ | Topanga
Topanga Canyon Art Gallery presents “Wild Places,” featuring new work by Lisa Baldwin. A reception is scheduled to take place November 14 between 12 and 5 p.m., with masks and social distancing measures in place.
“‘Wild Places’ is a series of recent works that celebrate the ephemeral character of California wildflowers,” a statement from the gallery explains. “This oeuvre is also a metaphor for the delicacy of the natural world and the looming concerns of human-induced climate change threatening it. These works are conceptually simple, yet intensely complex in their detail.”
The exhibit will then be open weekends through November 29 between 12 and 5 p.m. The works will also be on display via the gallery’s website: topangacanyongallery.com.
For appointments, call 424-326-6429.
