of an effort to woo younger Glendale residents.
"We have been feeling that, if we don't bring in some of the
younger people who have certainly been here long enough to be
considered old timers, the picnic won't get past 100," said Lynda Burns, one of the picnic's organizers. "We're hoping, besides the old
timers, that some of the long-timers will come. We're trying to
encourage the younger long-timers to start attending the picnic."
The picnic is open to those born in Glendale, anyone who calls it
their hometown, attended school or lived there for 25 years or more.
This year's entertainment will be barbershop quartet the Sweet
Adelines. Picnickers are encouraged to pack a lunch. The Glendale
Old-Timers Assn. will serve coffee. County Supervisor Michael
Antonovich will present Community Service awards to former Mayor
Larry Zarian and local attorney Pat Liddell. A variety of door prizes
will also be awarded.
But mostly, it's just a picnic for friends and families to enjoy,
Glendale Fire Asst. Chief Don Biggs said, and a chance to "talk to
people you haven't seen for a while and may not see for a while."
