Officers will receive the torch from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department at approximately 10:15 a.m. and the torch will be passed to Torrance Police Officers, thus completing the 4th leg of the 67 leg run will begin in the South Bay and end as a commencement for the opening of the Special Olympics Southern California Summer Games.
The Southern California Law Enforcement Torch Run involves more than 2,000 officers who proudly carry the Special Olympics Torch more than 500 miles and through more than 150 communities. The officers, representing law enforcement agencies throughout the state, collect donations for their participation and are sponsored by civic groups, local businesses and generous friends.
Local officers go above and beyond the call of duty year-round with their participation in the Law Enforcement Torch Run®, which is Special Olympics’ largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. The Torch Run has grown to include more than 125 runs in 48 nations. Since its inception more than 142,000 law enforcement officers have raised $414 million for the Special Olympics movement worldwide.
Independence Day Celebration - July 4th
The Palos Verdes Independence Day Committee will celebrate the annual 4th of July Independence Day Celebration on July 4th on the grounds of Malaga Cove School, 300 Paseo Del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates, beginning at 9:30am. Activates will feature patriotic music, a decorated bicycle parade for children, an apple-pie contest, and fun family games. The event is free and open to all guests.
The Palos Verdes Independence Day Celebration Committee was founded in 1962 by PVE resident volunteers and continues to be funded solely by private donations from Peninsula residents. Their hope is to applaud American values, celebrate our nation's independence, magnify our heritage of freedom and promote patriotism. The celebration has now become an annual community tradition where volunteers work together to provide a day of family fun and to renew a sense of appreciation for our independence.
Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by Palos Verdes Estates Neighborhood Watch. National Night Out is a great opportunity to get neighbors together for a block party. One of the highlights of the evening is the participation by the Mayor and City Council in a caravan which visits each of the participating blocks in our City. Police personnel, firefighters, paramedics, and PVE Neighborhood Watch board members also take part in the caravan.
If you missed this year, don't worry. We have one every year, the first Tuesday of August. So be ready to join us!
