Something wonderful always happens at Adat Ari El Synagogue. Case in point — the collection bins. One month we collected toothpaste for a homeless shelter. The bins overflowed with Colgate, Crest and Tom’s Organic Toothpaste. Then it was diapers. This month, there are racks upon racks of what is beginning to look like a mini dress shop — prom dresses for girls in foster care. And then, there’s the food. Last year, the rabbis suggested a community sponsored agriculture project: Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, refers to local farms from which individuals commit to buy seasonal produce.

Supporting Fiesta Days in La Cañada over the Memorial Day holiday, the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada-AM happily served 620 French toast breakfasts to friends and neighbors on May 29 in Memorial Park. Twenty-five club members, assisted by ten Benjamin Franklin Key Club members, set up, cooked, served and cleaned up the meals that had people asking for Chef Rosemary Hook's Secret French Toast recipe. (She isn't giving it up; try to analyze it next year.) AM Kiwanis would like to acknowledge local businesses that contributed funds and food to our breakfast: orange juice from Ralphs La Cañada; bread, Ralphs La Crescenta; water, Vons La Cañada; syrup, McDonalds; milk and eggs, Trader Joe's; and cream and butter from Greenbergs.
