Just when I thought cool autumn-like weather was here we experienced an oppressive heat wave at the beginning of the week. Hopefully it will cool off a bit by the weekend. The plus side of the heat wave is that we are still experiencing those beautiful, balmy evenings that we Californians love so much. Best of all is that our warm evenings can be enjoyed practically bug free! Or at least no mosquitoes attacked me, which is a relief because I am truly quite the bug magnet. Speaking of those lovely warm nights — that was a huge plus last Sunday when the La Cañada Thursday Club held its Annual Fall Barbecue at its Spanish-style clubhouse built in the mid 1920s.

Bernice Lucille Mason, 88, of La Cañada, died on July 10. She was born Dec. 25, 1918 to the late Wright Granville Grudem and his wife Mattie Benson Grudem in Brookings, South Dakota. Because Bernice's mother passed away shortly after her birth, Bernice was raised by her beloved Aunt Nora and Uncle Albert Lokken. She moved to California in 1936 to stay with brother Raymond and his family while she attended cosmetology school. There she met Richard R. Mason in 1937 and they married in 1940.

Four times a week, before the heat of the day sets in, a small group of volunteers gathers at St. Bede the Venerable's parish kitchen. Their goal is to have as many as 300 lunches - a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a sweet for dessert - all bagged and ready to go before 8 a.m. The meals are destined to reach shelters on L.A.'s Skid Row by lunchtime. But some of the volunteer workers, who call themselves the Skidettes, will be back at St. Bede's a couple of days later to spread more peanut butter on more slices of bread in a tradition that started 30 years ago. “The camaraderie of the group is what keeps me coming back,” said Mary Batenhorst, a longtime Skidette who serves as the group's treasurer.
