A sea of white hair covered the campus at Crestview Preparatory School last Friday.

Hanna is retiring as head of the school after 21 years, said Alex Kopelevich, the school's business manager. In a surprise ceremony for Hanna, who is easily recognizable by her pure white hair, everyone at the school wore brilliant white wigs as they greeted her entrance into the school's courtyard.

Men in coats and ties or tuxes, and bejeweled ladies in finery sat around white linen covered tables topped with centerpieces of red roses. They talked of children, grandchildren, vacations, murder mysteries and college pranks. There were reminiscences of float years gone by and even talk of the snowfall that lightly covered La Cañada during the 1949 Christmas program at one of the local elementary schools. About 130 of La Cañada’s finest turned out to share An Evening of Wine and Roses Sunday night at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club.

Senior Madison Anderson started it this off-season when she said her goal, and the team’s goal, was to win a CIF championship and she ended it Friday night with the final kill in the fifth game of the championship match. And when she scored it, the bench erupted and the players ran around the court, arms up, screaming, elated, looking for the nearest player to hug. It was the end of the season and it ended on the biggest win of their volleyball careers and after the award ceremony, everyone, from players to coaches to family to friends, stayed in that gym, talking to one another, sharing the moment, until the lights were shut off and security ushered people outside.

Hang out with Evanne Friedmann and it's hard to keep from laughing and smiling, because she's doing just that all the time. The 17-year-old La Cañada High School senior and aspiring filmmaker has plenty to be happy about: Evanne will be crowned the Tournament of Roses' 93rd Rose Queen during a ceremony today at the Pasadena Convention Center. But with her mother, sister and big scruffy dog in the living room of her cozy La Cañada Flintridge home, it was also easy to see Monday that Queen Evanne's good humor and bubbly enthusiasm for conversation, learning and new experiences came long before her crown.

Hundreds of costumed children made their way to my doorstep last Thursday night for Halloween treats. I ran out of the goodies earlier than expected so this witch had to shut off the lights and pretend she wasn't at home. I thought when dawn came I would be seeing candy wrappers blowing across my lawn. Instead, the only remnant that the marauding candy horde left in its wake was a beautiful red feather that had once belonged to somebody with an exotic crimson boa - it was a sweet reminder of All Hallow's Eve. -- The La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn.

The year 2010 was one of watchful anticipation in La Cañada Flintridge: City officials were on alert during periods of rainfall, keenly aware of the threat of debris flows in the wake of the 2009 Station fire that charred the Angeles National Forest, while school officials braced for ever-worsening news on the state budget front. The preparations taken immediately after the disastrous forest fire spared some, but not all, of the homes in the path of mudslides that hit the area in early February; it was a disaster of proportions that brought the governor to town to declare a state of emergency.
