North Shore Burgers partnered with the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge for a fundraiser on Sept. 11 with 10% of the restaurant’s proceeds to be donated to the Community Center.

“This is a great way for local community businesses and nonprofits to partner together,” said La Cañada City Council member Michael Davitt, co-owner of North Shore Burgers.

North Shore Burgers has invited area nonprofits to participate in its Tuesday Fundraising Days.

“Our preschool families, teachers, instructors, participants and friends attended the fundraiser at North Shore Burgers and everyone had a great time supporting the cause,” said Deb Jordan, executive director of the Community Center. “One of our staffers had her birthday party for 20 people on the patio.”

Homes from city's golden days still glow

One has to applaud the tenacity of volunteers and patrons who braved the hottest day of the year to support the Glendale Historical Society’s 2012 Home Tour on Sunday.


This year’s event was titled “Glendale’s Golden Age: Distinctive Homes of the 1920s and 1930s.” In his president’s message in the program, Greg Grammer explained how between the 1920s and ’30s Glendale’s population zoomed from 13,756 to 62,736. The increase prompted the development of several new residential neighborhoods.

Four of the homes on the tour were examples of the Spanish Colonial Revival style, which was the dominant architectural style here, as well as throughout the region, in the early 20th century. Also on display was a Tudor Revival style, popular in Glendale at the time. It was inspiring to see how well homeowners had kept the original integrity of each home so that it was difficult to tell what portions had been remodeled or added to the properties. What most had in common were patios appointed with potted flowers and lush foliage — just perfect for intimate dinners for two or lavish parties of 20.
