The Foothill Artists League held an art show Sunday afternoon at the historic Lanterman House on Encinas Drive, where about 130 visitors browsed through art, toured the house museum and listened to the bluegrass tunes of Keepin' Fire. The League is a group of ten painters who paint in the Impressionist and plein air traditions made famous by California artists in the late 19th and early 20th century. The term “plein air” is French for “open air” and the style of painting stressed that painters move from their studios to work outside, painting nature and buildings as they saw them in natural light.

During a Thursday morning ceremony that marked the La Cañada Flintridge’s observance of Arbor Day, local officials planted an oak tree at the Lanterman House to replace one that fell there during a heavy weekend storm last month Though just over 10 feet tall, the new tree is of the same California live oak species as the 60-foot heritage oak that came crashing down onto the property’s parking lot on March 19.

A towering oak tree that had stood for more than a century came crashing down this weekend onto the parking lot of the Lanterman House, the victim of heavy winds and rains that also felled a number of other large trees throughout La Cañada Flintridge. The 60-foot-tall native oak had shaded most of the property’s south side and predated the Lanterman House, built in 1915, by decades, said Executive Director Melissa Patton. “It’s a huge loss. I’m really upset about it,” Patton said Tuesday, when only a 15-foot segment of the tree’s massive trunk remained.

When a small group of La Cañada Congregational Church members first got the notion to make a list of donations and memorials made by congregants over the years, it seemed like an interesting side project. What the small committee didn't know then was that the church historian books and records kept throughout the past century would take them on a journey, not only into LCCC's own rich beginnings, but through the development of the community and its founding families. After two years of research, longtime church historian Sally Emerson - along with church members Joyce Holmes, Jo Anne Kennick and Carol Kulluk - compiled the "La Cañada Congregational Church History & Memorial Book.

Former La Cañada resident Sue Finch Schecter, who served as the founding president of the Lanterman House museum's board of directors, died Feb. 17 shortly after settling into a new apartment in Fairfield, Calif., according to family members.

No gavel was passed, no budget approved, but there was one order of business Tuesday night when the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce held its 100th annual meeting, the election of its 2013 board of directors. Wes Seastrom, who has led the organization through its centennial year, was reelected to serve as chairman of the board in the coming 12 months and will be installed at a dinner event in January. Tuesday night's gathering was a joint meeting/holiday party, held in the exquisite, 1920s-vintage main building of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, so fitting for the historic occasion.
