My goodness, I certainly wasn’t ready for summer last week when the thermometer soared to 94 degrees in the shade. All sorts of heat records were broken in and around the valley a week ago today.
I noticed that folks were getting a little cranky about the heat. At least it cooled off for the weekend. It doesn’t look like more rain is right around the corner, but that could be a surprise from Mother Nature, too.
Oakmont Country Club was spruced up for spring and provided a lovely setting for the recent La Cañada Thursday Club’s eco-friendly “Goin’ Green” benefit fashion show.
Chairman Peggy Touchstone hatched the plan, and helping her carry out the green theme were committee members Beverly Albright, Dee Fisher, Gracella Gibbs, Dotty Greenawalt, Sharon Hubanks, Pat Huber, Jody Platisa and Pat Ryburn.
The very creative Jody Platisa fashioned the dramatic orchid centerpieces for the tables. They were set among green, leafy plants and pieces of bamboo.
