I often read Anita Brenner's Around Town column in the Valley Sun on Thursdays and was surprised at the coincidence this morning that she was talking about the wonderful Marines' Memorial Club in San Francisco where I had just been. Sorry we ALFies shocked her, but we had arranged a group dinner in the Leatherneck Steakhouse as a special outing for the 23 of us who represented our Flintridge chapter at the national Assistance League conference last week. Far from playing second fiddle, the Marines' Memorial Club was a much-anticipated highlight of our trip.

Further, private investigations were taking place to confirm enrolled students actually lived in the district. Twenty Years Ago Plans to strengthen the Jet Propulsion Laboratory security shield to protect the lab’s computer system were going forward in the wake of its seven-hour penetration by a hacker, which had been discovered a month after the incident took place.

In years past, one served as a WAC while another was in the Navy Sea Bees. One used to ride bareback to grammar school while another grew up to become the principal of an elementary school and another became a junior high school counselor. Four took up nursing as a career ?one plumbed the mysteries of the universe at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory while another mastered the secret of fine wine making at a winery. Two were groundbreakers: one was one of the first four female officers appointed at the California Bank; another earned her driver's license at 14. One was born in Norway, another in Hong Kong, and yet another crossed the border from Czechoslovakia to Germany on foot.
