Junior Girl Scout Troop 354 from Lincoln Elementary held a yard sale this summer and had many good books left unsold, so the girls decided to donate them all to the Lincoln library. The librarian, Mrs. Van Amburg, said that donations are even more important now due to lack of funding from the state.
In celebration of the 95th anniversary of Girl Scouts, the Mt. Wilson Vista Council, which encompasses the foothill area, is hosting a gala dinner and auction on Saturday, Nov. 3.
The event is being held at the historic California Club in downtown Los Angeles. Los Angeles Times Sports Columnist and author Bill Plaschke will serve as the evening host, and four outstanding individuals including Steven Peterman and Annette Castro Ramirrez, both of La Cañada, will be honored for their commitment to the Girl Scout mission.
