A ceremonial bridge built in Marisa Lupica's memory has become a bridge to her spirit and the community.

Recreational users of La Cañada Flintridge's Cherry Canyon will be the beneficiaries of an Eagle Scout project that's in the planning stages, I learned as I sat in on Tuesday night's meeting of the LCF Parks and Recreation Commission. I'm getting ahead of our reporter, who will likely include it in her article on the meeting (look for that on March 24). But I can't help myself. I was impressed by the scope of the project and wanted to share a little bit about it with you today. John "JJ" Marshall, a Life Scout affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 507 at St. Bede Catholic Church, was on hand to present his proposal to provide four benches, set in various sections of the canyon, for the enjoyment of trail users who would like to pause and take in the spectacular views.

There are nearly 8 million youths involved in Boy and Girl Scout troops across the country. And — in our neck of the woods — dozens of troops, with individual characteristics, allow boys and girls from the Foothills to join in the fun, service and leadership training. There also are opportunities for adults to volunteer and help make children’s scouting experiences more memorable. “Each of the four [Boy Scout troops in La Cañada] are very different, each has its own strengths and weaknesses,” said Boy Scout Scoutmaster Gordon Wulke, of Troop No. 502. Wulke calls his troop, which is sponsored by St. George’s Episcopal Church, a “generalist group.
