Don Galleher spent many Saturday nights dressed up in a coat and tie, practicing social graces at Jane Denham’s cotillion classes at the Thursday Afternoon Club. “I hated it, just hated it,” he said. “The only reason I went was because she [Denham] was so pretty. I was going to Roosevelt Junior High at the time, in 1946, and really wasn’t at all interested in learning to dance, but my folks made me go.

Sitting at tables laden with white linen and silver cutlery, the soon-to-be graduates of the La Cañada Cotillion, Class of 2007, appeared resolute in their metaphoric transition from mere children to ladies and gentlemen.

The Las Candelas Fashion Show and Luncheon is always eagerly anticipated because it’s held every other year. This year, their “Tenderly”-themed event was on March 2 at the Burbank Marriott.

Las Candelas President Karen Whyte and benefit chairwoman Cathy Keen welcomed some 650 supporters — boys on one side of the model’s runway, girls on the other, just like at Mrs. Golatz’s Cotillion.

CINDY TRANE CHRISTESON "Life is like a mirror. If we frown at it, it frowns back. If we smile, it returns the greeting." UNKNOWN This is a story about an inspiring young man; a person who smiles at the world, and to whom the world readily smiles back. His story is difficult to condense into a short column, for he has achieved much in his 19 years and he's touched many lives along the way. Those of us who know him well have learned a deeper appreciation of the meaning of perseverance, hope and faith in God. Let me begin my story with his recent accomplishment -- that of graduating from University High School earlier this summer.
