Martha Moren received the Glendale News-Press Perpetual Trophy for her dedication to the Glendale Women's Athletic Club during the installation tea on June 5 at the group's clubhouse.

Moren was also honored as the member to have hiked the most miles.

She joined the club in 2004 as a member of the Hikers department. In 2005 she became co-chairwoman of the Hikers and volunteered to recycle bottles and cans to help raise money for the club, and continues that task today.

Members said she is very artistic and decorates the clubhouse for holidays and special occasions. She also bakes for the club's general meetings and made chocolate-chip fudge cupcakes for the installation tea.

In 2006-07 Moren served as third vice president and took on the ways and means parking lot sales. She was second vice president for 2008-09 and was president from 2009-11.

During the tea, scholarship recipient Alyssa Selve was introduced to the members.


Officers were installed by member Carol Hart. They are President Margaret Hammond, First Vice President Evy Erdos, Second Vice President Martha Moren, Third Vice President Olga Rothenbecker, Treasurer Charlie Bennison and Secretary Lucy Poropat.

Wine tasting benefits Red Cross

It will definitely be a laughing matter when the American Red Cross members and guests gather for the sixth annual Fine Wine, Chocolate and Cheese Tasting from 5:30 to 8 p.m. June 21 at Forest Lawn Museum, 1712 S. Glendale Ave., Glendale.

This year's special guest emcee is Fritz Coleman, who is KNBC Channel 4's weatherman and a seasoned stand-up comedian.

The Glendale-Crescenta Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross offers this opportunity to compare carefully selected wines from California and around the world.

In addition, imported cheeses, an array of Mignon fine chocolates and light appetizers by Chin Chin Catering will be on the menu.

“This is a wonderful venue because it overlooks Glendale and shares the courtyard with the Forest Lawn Museum, which is a real hidden gem in our city,” said chapter Executive Director Ron Farina.

There will be musical entertainment and a chance to see the art of Ian Hornak, featuring 32 paintings by one of the founding members of the Photorealist and Hyperrealist art movements.

There will be a raffle and silent auction of many gift items contributed by local businesses and community members.

All proceeds benefit the American Red Cross to help Glendale and the Crescenta Valley in times of emergencies.
