Wishnick Is Recovering from Surgery
Many people have wondered about former Pacific Palisades Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Arnie Wishnick, who underwent surgery for a tumor on his pancreas on September 17.
As of today, September 25, he is still at the UCLA Medical Center, but has not been allowed visitors.
Wishnick, who had served the Chamber since 1993, was one of the biggest cheerleaders for the new Caruso project, testifying in favor of it at all the public hearings. He had planned to stay on through the ribbon-cutting ceremony, but was replaced on his birthday, September 7, and was not invited to the Caruso gala on September 20.
Serving as executive producer of “BARK! The Musical” at Theatre Palisades, Wishnick is a champion of the local community theater and urges everyone to come out and see the production, which runs through October 7.
He has served on the local Fourth of July parade committee (PAPA) for decades and is the incoming co-president of the Pacific Palisades Optimist Club.
Various local dogs are also “complaining” because Arnie always had a treat for pooches who stopped by the Chamber office. We have been told that dogs are no longer welcome at the Chamber.
Send get-well cards to Arnie c/o of the Chamber of Commerce, 15330 Antioch St., and Circling the News will be happy to pick them up and make sure they get to Arnie, who we hope has a speedy recovery.
