This past long weekend I decided to gather up my dog Lola and get out of town. We headed along El Camino Real to beautiful Santa Barbara to visit the "Queen of the Missions" and my twin sister, Elaine, along with her husband, Larry. The warm Santa Ana winds that had been blowing in our valley followed me to this picturesque coastal city. A special treat for us was our daily walk along the breakwater by the harbor. Each day we were warmed by hotter than usual breezes. Oh, how I love the smell of the sea. I often wonder why I live so far away from the ocean.

The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce announced that it is canceling their 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibit due to lack of entries. The deadline, which was March 25, yielded 113 less slides than 2004, making it impossible to go forward with the event. "We are disappointed," said Executive Director Liz Church. "The chamber is analyzing what created such a drop in participation, since last year was one of the best responses we have ever had." Cancellation of the Juried Art Exhibit also means there will be no Art Reception which was scheduled for May 6 at Whites Gallery.

When Pat Anderson, chief executive and president of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce, learned she'd been named Kiwanis Club's 2013 "La Cañadan of the Year," she was a little more than surprised. Although, as a past president, Anderson serves on the selection committee for the annual leadership and volunteerism award, she had no idea she was being considered for the title. "At first I thought, 'How can that be?'" Anderson said of her reaction to the news. "I'm part of the selection committee, and we hadn't met to select anybody.

After experiencing the deep freeze of last week, this weekend's sunshine was so welcome. On Sunday morning I sat in my outdoor patio swing and finished up an epic 3,435-page book I had been reading for some time. The book, simply called "New York," had a good ending, and my world seemed blissful. I'm sure that all of you also truly appreciated the turn in our weather. The weather people on television seemed to be dancing a happy jig as they forecast this change. It was evident by last Thursday evening that the warming trend had begun, and that the more than 150 people gathered at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club for the 101st La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Assn.

The La Cañada Flintridge Country Club is quietly celebrating 50 years of lost balls, community fundraisers and memories this summer, and long-time members say that it's the camaraderie on the greens that have kept them coming back. “We like to think of it as the best-kept secret in the valley,” said Joanne Farmer, a member of the club since 1987. “Most of it has to do with the members.” Plans for the club were first unveiled by local developer Bill Godbey in 1959. Three years later, what was then known as the La Cañada Country Club opened its doors and gave golfers a chance to chase balls up and down a hilly course designed by noted golf course architect Lawrence Hughes.

Two local residents were in the spotlight Thursday night when the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Assn. installed its 2012 board officers and crowned royalty during a dinner event held at the LCF Country Club that also launched the chamber's centennial celebration. Wes Seastrom, a native La Cañadan and longtime local Realtor, accepted the gavel to lead the organization this year. Seastrom, a former La Cañadan of the Year, spoke with gentle humor of his family, friends and his reluctant agreement to join the chamber's board of directors several years ago. Seastrom is stepping into the shoes of outgoing chairman Joel Peterson.
