On May 19, the La Crescenta Woman’s Club presented a check for $1500 to Ron Farina, chapter executive officer of the Glendale Red Cross-Crescenta Valley, in recognition and thanks for the aid they supplied to the foothills area during the Station Fire and its aftermath in 2009 and 2010. This donation was made possible because of the successful fashion show presented by the LCWC last March, chaired by LCWC members Cindy Charles and Debbie Cant.
Farina spoke of how the Red Cross is prepared to leap into action for any emergency befalling the Crescenta Valley. He explained where the emergency materials are stored around the valley.
In other news, the membership has elected co-presidents for the coming year. Incoming president Carol Huntwork has been house chair for the past 10 years and has seen the club through a demanding period of remodeling and redecorating for the past three years. Her co-president will be Genny Bundick who has been philanthropy chair for the last five years.
Outgoing president Rita Even will assume the position of first vice president/dean, a liaison post between the La Crescenta club and its district office.
Other new officers include Deanna Alfeld, Daryl Baker-Pollack, Carol Bennedetti, Cindy Charles, Danette Erickson, Jeanne Garibaldi, Marianne Jennings, Gloria Lee, Jeanne Long, Dea McCrory, Florence Virgalitto, and Marilyn Wright.
