Snow, smiles, snacks, singing and Santa Claus. What more could one need to signify the start of the holiday season? The La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce’s 14th annual Festival in Lights last Thursday brought hundreds of area people together for an afternoon and evening filled with all of the above — and more! Children petted visiting reindeer and played in the snow, tossed snowballs and attempted to build minuscule snowmen. Families dressed in warm coats, scarves and gloves held steaming cups of hot cocoa as they crowded around the Memorial Park gazebo stage to listen to the sounds of Christmas music performed by various La Cañada school choirs.

Seven tons of snow has been put in Memorial Park in anticipation of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Association's 11th annual Festival in Lights, which starts at 4 p.m. tonight. "The event gets bigger and better each year. This year we have increased the amount of snow from five tons to seven tons this year," said LCF Chamber Executive Director Pat Anderson. In addition to the snow, the two-hour event features live reindeer, Christmas caroling and Santa's arrival in an antique fire truck as well as performances by Palm Crest Elementary School's "Melody Makers" and La Cañada High School Chamber Singers.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council moved ahead with several city projects and actions during its relatively short council meeting Tuesday night. The meeting was the first of the new year and included updates on city projects as well as information on the city?s plan to decrease the peafowl population. In an update by Kevin Chun, the city?s director of administrative services, the council learned that following a count of peafowl within the city, that number was reduced during the month of December through trapping from 40 to 19. This after the Oct. 20 council meeting, at which the council directed city staff to reduce the number of peacocks and peahen in area neighborhoods to accommodate resident complaints of health and safety concerns with the overpopulation of the birds.

I'm With the Band, Part II The San Gabriels rose in splendid "purple mountain majesties," tinged with a flush of gold. The air was warm and balmy, while the grass beneath my feet felt deliciously cool and damp. Where, when and why did this perfect moment happen? Music-in-the-Park is a La Cañada Flintridge tradition, which somehow (you know, life happens) I had never attended before last weekend. Glad I finally went though, because the band Smooth was onstage at the gazebo in Memorial Park.

Shaded by the gazebo at Memorial Park one afternoon last week, Daryal Gant, president of the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada, presented a transport athletic chair to representatives from each of La Cañada's four high school athletic programs. True to the Kiwanis motto of serving the children of the world, the club donated the specially designed chairs to Flintridge Prep, St. Francis High School, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and La Cañada High School to provide a means of transporting injured players safely at high school sports events.

The two-hour event started at 4 p.m., last Thursday, Dec. 8. During the event Keely Uhlir, Kelley Fox, Sue Park, Lacy Hannah and Christina Barsamian were announced as La Cañada's royal court.

In April of 2000, our daughter, Rachel Torres, asked the La Cañada Flintridge City Council to install three new plaques on the gazebo at Memorial Park. The first plaque would bear the names of the five La Cañadans who died in Vietnam. It would be followed by plaques for those who died in World War II and Korea. The project would be funded by voluntary donations at no cost to the taxpayers. Rachel was 16 years old. She called her proposal, Project Remembrance. When the Memorial Park gazebo was installed in 1990, the city installed a plaque with the city council members?
