Before Safer at Home orders went into place, the Westside Chapter of the National Charity League, on organization dedicated to developing young women into the next generation of community leaders through hands-on volunteering, cultural enrichment and leadership training, celebrated their Class of 2020 in a culminating “Senior Recognition” ceremony.
The graduating class of young women from Palisades Charter High School, Brentwood School, Harvard-Westlake School, Wildwood School, Archer School for Girls and Marymount High School were honored for the dedication they demonstrated over six years in the NCL program.

Longtime Palisadian Jeffrey Spitz shared a plaque he found at the base of a eucalyptus tree at the edge of Via de Las Olas Bluffs near the intersection of Swarthmore and Beirut avenues while taking walks along the bluff over the past few months. Spitz shared that he has so far been unable to obtain any information as to the origin of the plaque or about Pitney Madison, who is described as “the greatest man who ever lived.” Anyone with information about the plaque or Madison is invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
