Longtime La Cañada residents Tom and Meredith Reynolds were recently selected the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada’s La Cañadans of the Year. The couple has lived in La Cañada since 1982; however, Tom Reynolds grew up in this town and was a 1972 La Cañada High School graduate. He also is a second-generation La Cañadan of the Year, as his dad, James Reynolds earned that honor in 1961. “This truly is a great honor,” Meredith Reynolds said, adding, “La Cañada is one of the strongest volunteer communities I’ve ever lived in, and it’s an honor to be recognized in a town that really values volunteerism.

Scouts from Troop 501 presented San Gabriel Valley Council's "Extra Miler" award to former scoutmaster El Rey Ensch while on a trip to Jawbone Canyon. The award is given to those volunteers who go beyond the call of duty and in this case it was long overdue. Ensch has been affiliated with Troop 501 since 1952 when he started as a scout. After serving in the military, he returned and soon became scoutmaster, a position he held for more than 15 years. He continues to participate in the troop by organizing and leading one weekend trip per year.

Scouts from Troop 501 traveled to Lee Vining Canyon earlier this month on an adventure very few would even consider. At an elevation of 8,000 feet and in heavy snowfall the boys, leaders and a Sierra Mountain guide hiked into the canyon and proceeded to build snow shelters. These were built by mounding snow much like a haystack and, once it was hardened, hollowing them out. The boys then spent the night in the shelters. This experience is one the scouts will not soon forget.

Members of the Noon Kiwanis Club of La Cañada teamed up on Oct. 16 to build another addition to the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge. Members of the club have been involved in providing labor for many projects in the past for the center. Led by Dr. Joel Smith, who is the past chairman of the center's board and past president of the Kiwanis Club, Kiwanians erected the new storage building. The new building is adjacent to a shed built by the Boy Scouts. Smith said that despite all the labors of love contributed by volunteers, the community center is inadequate for the needs of the public.

Misplaced Priorities' next public appearance will be at the beginning of La Cañada's three-day historic “9.10.11” event on Friday, Sept.
