Hot Times at La Crescenta Library
And don’t forget Bingo on Friday.
CV Chamber of Commerce director Rick Liss entered his famous white chili. I asked for the recipe, couldn’t get it, but his dog – What’s His Name – called and offered it for a price.
The CV Robotics Club brought its robots, but those robots are hard to crack.
Even our CV chamber president, Leonard Ghazarian, sent an entry. Well, not actually Leonard – he tastes, but I don’t think he cooks.
I came home with no recipes.
What a great turnout at the warm August mixer hosted by the Fire House. For many in the community, it was their first tour of this great youth center. The teens make many of the rules that are written on a board for all to see. Priorities on this list were simple: flush the toilet and replace the toilet paper. Think it’s a national rule.
Thanks to all who attended, including our CV Sheriff’s Department, Fire Station #63 and Officer Matt Zakarian from GPD.
Now, let’s turn back the pages to yesteryear, 1946 to be exact. The second annual American Legion Post 288 rodeo was taking place to raise funds to create a permanent living memorial. The rodeo grounds were at 2949 Honolulu Ave. Yep, we had some real life chills, thrills and doctor bills at the American Legion Rodeo.
Their initial dream never came true, but in 1959 a monument was built at Two Strike Park. It needs the names of those who gave their lives in service to their country.
This community came together when we built the monuments in Glendale; we now need the help of the community to fix this wall.
We hope you will join us for Bingo on Friday, Aug. 17 as the American Legion and VFW continue to raise funds for this wall. Each game is worth $100 – not too bad. Tickets are available at the chamber office – only $10 for 10 games. Also available at the door. The games are played at Holy Redeemer Healy Hall at Montrose Avenue and Del Mar Road beginning at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.).
