2021 Movies in the Park Season Canceled | Palisades Recreation Center
For the second year in a row, Movies in the Park has canceled its August 2021 season, which, in a typical year, takes place outdoors at Palisades Recreation Center.
“Unfortunately Movies in the Park will not be happening this year,” event organizers shared in a June 25 Facebook post. “While it’s fantastic that everything is opening back up from COVID, we simply do not have enough time to get it all set up for this year. It usually takes months of organizing, which we were not able to do with all the uncertainties around COVID.”
Movies in the Park is planning to be back for its 17th season every Saturday night in August 2022.
“We wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy 2021, and we look forward to seeing all of you in 2022,” organizers wrote in the post. “Thank you all for your continued support. See you under the stars in 2022.”
Passport Fair | The Village
Pacific Palisades Post Office, located at 15243 La Cruz Drive, will host a two-day Passport Fair on Friday, July 2, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and Saturday, July 3, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Those who attend are asked to bring their birth certificate or naturalization, photos, fees, and a CA drivers license or ID card.
“Some people are having a very difficult time getting their passports in a timely manner as there is a huge demand for passports right now,” wrote Janet Turner, field supervisor for the Office of Congressman Ted Lieu, ahead of the fair. “It’s important for you to realize that your passport must be good for six months after the day you travel or you will not be allowed into most countries, and your airline usually will not allow you on the airplane.”
The events will be limited to the first 150 walk-ins. For more information and a complete list of what is required, visit about.usps.com/newsroom/local-releases/ca/2021/0624-passport-fair-pacific-palisades.htm.
Summer Reading Challenge | Palisades Branch Library
The Los Angeles Public Library Summer Reading Challenge 2021, sponsored by Library Foundation of Los Angeles, is underway now through August 7.
“Read books, e-books, graphic novels or magazines; or listen to an audiobook—it all counts,” according to information shared on the challenge’s website. “Renew your love of reading, learning and community.”
Those who participate will collect points for reading and completing learning-based activities after registering and tracking progress online or through the Beanstack Tracker App. A gameboard can also be downloaded and printed.
Every 20 minutes of reading counts for 20 points, and completing an activity is 100. Once a participant reaches 1,000 points, they have completed the Summer Reading Challenge. Those who complete the challenge and submit information will be entered to win additional prizes.

PCHS Fund | Pali High
Palisades Charter High School is collecting funds to get the school closer to its 2020-21 goal for the PCHS Fund.
“We are just $5,000 away,” representatives from the school shared in an email. “Closing that gap would help free up additional funds for our students when they return to school in August.”
The PCHS Fund supports school programming, including classroom instructional materials, technology and innovation, math aides and tutors, the College Center, and more.
