Does the City require dog licenses?
A dog license is an additional form of ID that indicates your pet has been registered with your city
and vaccinated against rabies. All dogs age 4 months and older are required by law to be licensed
in California. The City of Commerce has a dog license program available to residents. For more
information, contact the Public Safety and Community Services Department at (323) 887-4460.

If you like ice cream but could do without the high fat content, Gelato by Stick
Station is the place for you.

“Regular ice cream has 25 to 35% fat due to the ice cream base which contains
egg yolks, buttermilk, butter and flavoring,” explained owner Brandon Choi.

Since Choi uses AAA organic milk (milk flavors) and real fruit (dairy-free sorbeto)
in his products, all of which are made in Commerce, he has managed to keep the
fat content significantly lower than regular ice cream’s: his gelato has just 6 to 10%
fat. Fortunately, the loss of fat does not result in a loss of flavor.

With at least 15 flavors to choose from, you may have trouble selecting one.
Should you try the pure pistachio, stracciatella (chocolate chip), dark chocolate,
strawberry sorbeto, mango sorbeto or some other equally enticing flavor?

If you find the idea of toppings appealing, you can select a gelato bar from a
variety of flavors, and then decide on a topping such as unsweetened coconut
shreds, Oreo crumbs, rainbow sprinkles, gummy bears, chocolate balls or others.

Everything about Gelato by Stick Station, from the gelato flavors, to the clean,
organized store with its smartly uniformed employees, indicates that Choi is not
new to this business. In fact, he opened his flagship store, located in Old Town
Pasadena, in 2014.

Choi chose the City of Commerce as his business’ location because he thought
that the City, with its eclectic composition of industrial and residential sectors, would
be the ideal place to operate both his retail and wholesale enterprises. The City’s
close proximity to downtown Los Angeles also played a key role in his decision to
open his business here. The business held its grand opening in July.

Despite the astonishing array of choices already available in his store, the savvy
business owner is planning to offer gourmet paletas. When asked if he is
considering any particular flavors, Choi mentioned strawberry with condensed milk,
coconut with dulce de leche, banana with Nutella, dark chocolate, Romeo & Juliet
(cheese with guava paste flavor from Brazil), organic milk Oreo and others.

Another way Choi will be expanding his menu and ensuring he is meeting his
customers’ needs is by adding vegan and no sugar added products. Customers
can expect catering services to be available in the near future as well. The store is
open to the public from 11:30 to 8:30, Tuesday through Sunday.

FROM COMMERCE TO Pauline Viesca
Miss Clippers
PRINCETON

Alissa C. Lopez Serfozo has worked hard all of her life and
excelled in school. While growing up, she participated in many
of the City’s programs: preschool, Summer Day Camp, ballet,
T-Ball, club volleyball and the Summer Reading Program, which she
especially cherished. Her commitment to her education and
participation in extracurricular activities paid off when she was
accepted by Princeton University, one of the top schools in the world.

Before attending Princeton, Lopez Serfozo participated in a year-
long gap program that paid her expenses while she worked as an
English and arts teacher at a local school in Varanasi, India. While
teaching in India, she studied Hindi and decided to pursue architec-
tural design and planning. She recently graduated summa cum laude
with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Architecture and a Certificate in
Urban Studies.

Although Lopez Serfozo is very self-assured, she was not always.
“Many of my greatest successes grew out of experiences of self-doubt
or of fear. These moments were essential for developing my
confidence and teaching me the importance of resilience,” she said.

Lopez Serfozo encourages high school students to feed their
intellectual curiosity and to take advantage of college assistance
programs such as QuestBridge, the Gates Scholarship, and Pre-Col-
lege Programs.

Now that Lopez Serfozo has one college degree behind her, she
has begun working for an international architectural and urban design
studio in New York City. She plans to pursue a Masters of Architecture
and perhaps even a PhD in Architecture.

Miss Clippers 2018 Pauline Viesca will be hosting the annual
Clippers Community Night this November.

Viesca is no stranger to sports and athletics, being a world class
boxer competing in several Junior Olympics and Youth World
Championships, winning regional and national championships along
the way.

In addition to being championship boxer, Viesca is an advocate for
leading an active and healthy lifestyle, which she does by running the
Commerce Freedom 5K and Turkey Trot every year, among other
activities.

“It is very important for everyone to be active and stay in shape
because obesity and illnesses have grown over the years,” she said.
“So it is very important for people to stay as healthy as possible start-
ing at a young age.”

Viesca is also big sports fan who enjoys watching boxing and
baseball with her family and friends and always cheers for the
Dodgers whenever she can. Being a huge sports fan, she is honored
to represent the organization.

To get tickets for the Commerce Clippers Community Night, contact
the Parks and Recreation Department at (323) 887-4434.
