Q. My doctor suggested I write a family health history but I don’t really know what that means. Can you explain it? A family health history is a written record of a family's health. The history contains information about a family's medical conditions, lifestyle habits (for example, whether anyone in the family has smoked), and where and how family members grew up. It's like a family tree for health. You can use a family health history to see if you, your children or your grandchildren might face an increased risk of developing serious health problems.

Thanks to Denise Hovland, a local historian who has discovered La Cañada’s forgotten heroes and heroines — casualties of World War II and Korea. Thanks to Denise, we’ve been bitten by the genealogy bug. The new online databases are outstanding. Many of them are free of charge. Others charge a fee. My friend, Zelda, has traced her roots all the way to the American Revolution. I gave her a friendly phone call to announce my new obsession. Zelda gave me some advice.

Lynn Duvall Mary Spalding and I strolled into a meeting room at the La Cañada Library. I assumed she was a member of the genealogy group whose monthly meeting would start in a few minutes. Perhaps she thought the same of me, but when we introduced ourselves, we discovered that we were both first-time visitors. Although Mary might be new to the group, she is no stranger to the study of genealogy. She began to research about it more than 35 years ago. Her father's side is French-Canadian.

On Sunday, Oct. 23, Saint George's Preschool held its annual Fall Harvest Dinner, which was attended by 302 people. The dinner is held annually for the families of all who attend Saint George's Preschool. There were crafts for the kids that included face painting, mini pumpkin decorating, and a family "tree of thanks." Cherie McSweeney, preschool director, announced that the Pre-K students would be leading everyone in prayer. The students sang "God Made the Earth."

La Cañada Elementary students were treated to an around-the-world celebration at their annual World's Fair. The event is sponsored by the school's PTA and invites parents to help introduce other countries and cultures to the students. "The kids are interested and are asking good questions," Janah Risha said. He is originally from Lebanon and wanted to share his knowledge and personal experience of the country with the students. "It is important that people see that we are immigrants just like many others that came to this country," Risha said.

Established in 1951, the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA has served local foothill communities offering a wide variety of classes and programs for all ages. For more than 40 of those years, shopping for a family Christmas tree at the Y?s lot has become a community tradition. This year the lot will be open from Dec. 5 through Christmas Eve, from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily. All proceeds from the sale of these trees go directly to support the CC-YMCA?s Youth & Government Teen Leadership Program.

I have just arrived back home from Scotland and England where it was a brilliant fall with trees in their full colorful glory. Kind of strange to leave a place where I was all bundled up to keep warm and jump right back into summer-like weather here in our valley. I had wonderful wanderings and, of course, the highlight was to spend precious time with my three grandchildren — Aidan , Lucan and little missy Morgan — children of my son Chris and his wife Megan, since they now live in England.

I skipped out of town this past weekend to visit my sister in San Clemente. It was an amazing weather change from the foothills, with fog blowing by the windows and cool enough for me to have to borrow woolly socks from her to put on my feet. I even had to put a wrap on to keep my neck and shoulders warm. It's a good thing I put a pair of long slacks in my suitcase because I certainly did need them - my light summer skirts just didn't suffice down there by the shore. We had some good sister time and even celebrated the birth of her son and wife's newly adopted daughter, who they named Elisabeth - “Lissy” for short.
