It was a reunion of sorts between the schools, as the Spartan band had visited the Aussies the previous year. Twenty Years Ago … A county work crew began fencing the locally celebrated "Berkshire Rock" to keep vandals away, following up on action decreed by the LCF City Council. For years the site of artwork created by local youths, it had fallen victim to taggers.

The event was pretty much what La Cañada City Councilman David Spence imagined when in the 1990s he urged the city to begin a community Music in the Park event. Spence previously told the Valley Sun he’d been to Maine nearly 20 years ago and seen a community park event where everyone gathered to enjoy an evening together and hear the community band play. The event was a lot of fun and people vacationing from all over came out to hear the band play, he said. In a similar fashion, hundreds of folks gathered last Sunday night at Memorial Park, prepared with blankets, lawn chairs, picnic baskets and, in some cases, the family pet, ready for an evening of entertainment, relaxation, and family fun. They weren’t disappointed.
