The Lanterman House ballroom was swinging to the sounds of 1930s and '40s music performed by the Sisters of Swing when the Lanterman House Foundation held a fundraising event Sunday evening. Prior to the performance, the 80 attendees enjoyed hors d'oeurves and wine served in the museum's courtyard. "I thought it went swimmingly, to use an old-fashioned term," said Melissa Patton, the museum's executive director. "The music was fabulous and it was the event I had hoped it would be. It was a fun, casual evening of good food, good wine and great swing music."

My personal experience growing up with the local YMCA in Eugene, Ore. was a relatively limited one. No summer camps, swim lessons, or pancake cook-offs. No healthy kids day, yoga or Pilates. In fact, I think the only reason I ever visited the pool was to use the high dive, which I don't believe they have any more, and I certainly wasn't learning any diving techniques doing cannonballs with my friends at open recreation time (not a favorite of the lifeguard on duty). So, that being said, I wasn't totally sure what to expect when the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA hired me to work as a staff writer and to manage their website.

Emily conceded to her husband’s wish on the condition that a large ballroom be included in the architectural design for the family home to built on Encinas Drive....
