The annual dinner meeting of the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. was held on Jan. 20 at the La Cañada Thursday Club. With the recently-captured “Bob Hope Humor Trophy” banner displayed on stage, the evening was celebratory from beginning to end.
In her invocation, Pat Foltyn gave thanks that for the 34th year people of widely diverse interests and talents united in this remarkable community effort to create a fantastic and award-winning float like “If Pigs Could Fly.”
Jeff Hemphill of Cut, Carve and Pour in Sierra Madre catered the buffet dinner for the 83 attendees, and Joe Thompson served as emcee for the evening.
Vice President Administration Sue Beatty, VP Float Development Jim Geoghegan, Construction Chair James Herrington, Decoration Chairs Danelle and Brian Jacobs, Site Chair Mike O’Connor and President Ann Neilson recognized some of the many individuals involved in all aspects of the creation of this year’s float.
