In addition to the installation, grants totaling more than $24,000 were distributed by the Mary Pinola & Crescenta Valley Chamber Education Fund. According to its website, since its inception the fund has awarded over $186,977 to educational programs and capital projects in the Crescenta-Cañada Valley. This year, 11 organizations providing “exceptional service to our community” received grants. Recipients included Crescenta Valley Instrumental Music Foundation at CV High School, which demonstrated what the $3,939 was going to be used for: the purchase of two new flugelhorns. School music director Mathew Schick came to the podium then had two of the jazz band musicians play a selection on the flugelhorn.

Eleanor Wacker ushered in the grant for the La Crescenta Woman’s Club. Wearing a hard hat (decorated with flowers) and waving a hammer and saw, Wacker presented a check to the 100-plus-year-old Woman’s Club for facility repairs in the amount of $1,000.

Chris Waldheim of J’s Maintenance donned a wetsuit and swim gear to present the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center/Glendale Community College Adaptive Physical Education Program with a check for $3,000 to rent pool space at the RBAC for the GCC program. A portion of the grant will also be used to support the purchase of a pool lift to ensure that all students may access the facility.

In all, $24,110 was distributed to the recipients.
