This past Wednesday evening, John Thomas Dye School hosted the Bel-Air Association’s Emergency Preparedness meeting for nearly a 150 interested residents. Both LAPD and LAFD officials were on hand to give updates on the Woosley Fire, along with a presentation on earthquake preparedness from Cal Tech Seismology Laboratory Guest Speaker Margaret Vinci. 

We want to thank our local Police and Fire Departments for continuing to do such a great job, and JTD for being a terrific host.

The Bel-Air Association invites the community to mingle with the neighbors and to enjoy IN-N-OUT on Tuesday, November 27th, from 4PM to 7PM at the BAA office.  It’s a good time to mingle with the neighbors and to kick-off BAA’s Third Annual Holiday Toy Drive.  This year’s drive will benefit the young patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Mattel’s Children Hospital at UCLA.

Think generously this holiday season.  Many children will be in the hospital over the holidays and their families may be too stressed to shop or financially not be able to buy toys for their children.  

Please drop the UNWRAPPED item to the BAA office by December 14th.  The children and their families will appreciate anything you can do to brighten their holiday.
