No sooner do we get lulled into thinking our city should be at the top of those lists of best places to call home than we are faced with a reason why maybe the arbiters of such things might actually know what they’re doing when they omit our little Tree City U.S.A. from their glowing reports.
What, you might wonder, has brought on such a thought? Just one little thing, honestly. I’m seeing a nit and I’m in the mood to do a little picking.
Until yesterday, my La Cañada-honed boosterism felt at nearly an all-time peak. How cool, after all, was last weekend? Congratulations to Todd Andrews and his organizing committee behind the 9.10.11 celebration. It was fantastic to see so many people turn out for the first event of the weekend, the party/picnic/concert in Memorial Park on Friday night, and to learn from the various organizations who held open houses and offered volunteer opportunities all day Saturday that our residents were engaged in a host of activities.
