It is with great sadness we announce the passing this past month of our beloved Chamber family member and community leader Jean Maluccio. Jean worked tirelessly for her Crescenta Valley community: the CV Chamber of Commerce, CV Fireworks, the La Crescenta Woman’s Club, the American Legion and VFW, the 9/11 Remembrance Motorcade, the Mary Pinola/Crescenta Valley Chamber Education Fund and many other organizations and groups. Jean was the person behind the scenes making it all work perfectly. She never expected anything in return, never wished to be in the limelight, and always gave the credit to others. Jean would not want us to dwell on her passing. She will be greatly missed but never, ever forgotten. Goodbye, dear friend.


Our Chamber is pleased to announce the addition of nine (9) new business members in October! Joie de Vivre Style, Moo Moo Mia, JJB Computer Consulting, Gaspar Como at John Hart Real Estate, Aujla Legal, Aligned Construction Company, Gus & Andy’s Kitchen & Bar, Thomas Denton Company and La Cañada Furniture and Design. We welcome each of them and we’re pleased they recognized the value of a Chamber business membership and being part of our Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce family.

In September the Montrose Search and Rescue team held a celebration of its 75th anniversary at Crescenta Valley Park. It was also a fundraising event to help support the purchase of uniforms and gear, which is often paid from the pockets of individual team members.

Emergency Preparedness Tip:

Keep at least a three-day supply of water per person – store a minimum of one gallon of water per person per day with two quarts for drinking, two quarts for food preparation and sanitation. Store the water in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles. If water is of questionable purity you may filter the water using a piece of cloth or coffee filter to remove solid particles or boil the water for one minute, cool it and pour it back and forth between two clean containers to improve the taste before drinking.
