We were driving to a friend’s house for Saturday night dinner. In the back of the car, Simone was reciting something she heard at school on Friday. The words, spoken out of context, slowly began to resonate. I had heard them before. In her raspy voice she said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”. I remember the first time I heard these words.

Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles is proud to announce the final production of its historic 25th silver anniversary season, the 25th Anniversary concert, "You Made Me Love You: The Music of Judy Garland" with Dr. Bruce Mayhall conducting for his third season as artistic director. Twenty-five years ago, almost to the day of these final concerts, on July 12, 1979, Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles was formed. In honor of this historic occasion, the chorus will honor Judy Garland, whose death sparked the Stonewall riots, which was one of the touchstones of the modern gay and lesbian civil rights movement.

Whoever heard of June Gloom in August? Most of the television weather people were chattering last week about the cloudy mornings, calling the weather some kind of phenomenon. Of course by the time you read this column, the clouds will be gone and it will be considerably hotter. I will be taking my fancy hand-held fan that I got in Japan many years ago everywhere I go. I'll also be savoring those lovely cool mornings we recently had. *** A few weeks ago the La Cañada Thursday Club, along with other community philanthropic organizations and sundry book club members, were invited by the Disney Company to visit the La Cañada Regal Theatre to pre-screen the film, “The Help,” based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Kathryn Stockett.
