The title caught my eye. The La Cañada Thursday Club Community Relations Committee will show a film, open to everyone in the community, on Sunday, July 31, from 3 to 5:30 p.m., at the clubhouse at 4440 Woodleigh Lane. The film is entitled: “In 500 Words or Less.”
The film follows four students and their families “as they begin today’s highly competitive college application process,” according to the invitation. “A ‘must see’ program for high school students and the people who love, support, and guide them.”
Thursday Club Past President Suzanne Tutt alerted me to the program. Its title grabbed my attention because my mission each week is to write about topics of local interest “in 500 words or less,” a task less stressful for me than for a high school kid (or their families). Their futures hang in the balance, while I describe past experiences, including trips down Foothill Boulevard with our dog, a black Lab rescue dog named Miss Audrey Hepburn.
