Woman’s club has Arbor Day event
The La Crescenta Woman’s Club is celebrating its 100th year of raising money for local charities — a tradition since 1911.
County Supervisor Michael Antonovich recognized the club for its centennial year with a certificate, which was accepted by Ginny Bundick, co-chairwoman of the club at its annual Arbor Day celebration on March 19 at Two Strike Park.
This was followed by similar recognition by the Crescenta Valley Town Council, and L.A. Parks and Recreation. Danette Erickson, a member of the club, gave a history of the club. A cake that was decorated in a forest theme was served.
