The chapel at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in La Cañada sits atop a hill overlooking Pasadena and the Rose Bowl. The chapel?s hardwood floor creaks when walked on. Its Mediterranean architecture is defined by wide arches, stuccoed wall surfaces and tiled roof. Walking through the chapel, once can sense that this was once a place of luxury, outdone only by the people who stayed there. Although the school?s chapel is only one of many rooms that make up the former Flintridge Hotel which opened in 1926 ?

The congregation of the Armenian Apostolic Church of La Crescenta and La Cañada celebrated Palm Sunday with traditional Armenian prayers and ceremonies at Lanterman Auditorium. Incense filled the room, and the altar was flanked with palm leaves, which are a sign of triumph and victory in the time of Jesus. Archpriest Father Hovsep Hagopian led the Palm Sunday service. After the procession, in a special ceremony called "Teruhnpatz," Hagopian and a deacon asked God to open the gates of heaven to the congregation and accept them into his heart.

Ten Years Ago After sitting vacant for several years, the former bank building at the northwest corner of Foothill Boulevard and Oakwood Avenue reopened with a new look and four new tenants, including a frame store.

In the Mailbag section of the Dec. 19 Valley Sun a letter writer extolled the proposed zoning changes slated for La Cañada . I have to assume that said writer does not live in any of the areas affected by those proposed changes. Her next-to-last paragraph read: “The slight, if any, decrease in real estate values should be considered a badge of honor rather than a catastrophe among we who materially have so much.” She, obviously, is not among those who need to maintain or, with good fortune, even slightly increase every penny of real estate value accrued to our property.
