Last Saturday’s “once-in-a-century” citywide 9.10.11 event was awesome. Why don’t we do it again next year?
On Saturday, Sept.10, the city’s ZIP code matched the date. To celebrate, there were open houses, with free admission at Descanso Gardens, the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA, Lanterman House and Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The La Cañada Thursday Club, of course, hosted a tea. There were also volunteer opportunities throughout our town.
The 9.10.11 event was so much fun, let’s schedule a repeat on 9.10.12.
The ZIP code for the La Cañada Post Office is “91012.” That’s a great excuse for another party.
The only hitch is the United States Postal Service, which recently announced that it is on the verge of a default. Already projected to lose more than $7 billion this year, the USPS, according to Politico, “is maxed out on its $12 billion line of credit with the Treasury Department and could default on a $5.5 billion payment it must make to a retiree health benefits fund by month’s end.”
