The First Belmont Shore Breakfast was a success!!!

Our first breakfast went extremely well. About sixty of our neighbors attended. Everyone that helped out looked snappy in those "We love LB" shirts. It was a great start. I look forward to next month. Please spread the word to all your neighbors.

The Book for April is....

Into the Wild by Jack Krakauer
Pick it up Now!!!

What would possess a gifted young man recently graduated from college to literally walk away from his life? Noted outdoor writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer tackles that question in his reporting on Chris McCandless, whose emaciated body was found in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness in 1992.

The date for our next meeting is Monday, April 28th from 7-9pm.
Meeting place: Aroma Di Roma, 5327 E. 2nd Street, Long Beach, CA 90803

"O Beautiful Community"

"The True Joy In Life"

This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

George Bernard Shaw
