John's pick of the week!

I'm John Jones, Director of the Community Services Department.  This is our fourteenth edition of the Torrance eNEWSLETTER, another way to find out what's happening in the great City of Torrance.  Each week I'll give you my picks of what you and your family can do in Torrance.


As this week's selections fall within the Hanukkah and Christmas Holidays, I want to wish everyone a happy and enjoyable Holiday Season.  In addition, I am only providing you my top 2 picks this week, as many of our programs and classes are not available during this time period.  We hope you join us today, as we continue to "Create and Enrich the Community through People, Programs and Partnerships!"
