Friday will make it four decades since the La Cañada Boosters Club originated in 1970. This detail was nearly overlooked by the club itself.
Steve Brown, a club director, was surprised when asked if there were any plans to celebrate the Oct. 15 anniversary. There has been little time for Boosters to reflect on their history, as they're putting the finishing touches on the club's Nov. 6 dinner and auction fundraiser.
"We really weren't aware of it," Brown said. "We've kind of been focused on getting the job done."
Since 1970, the organization's task has been to raise money for extracurricular activities at La Cañada High School. As a result, junior-high sports, school clubs and extracurricular activities have increased at the school, Brown said.
