My life as a scout lasted about two weeks. It wasn’t even long enough for me to get my scouting outfit. I was probably about 8 when my dad signed me up at the scouting and cultural organization he had been a member of in his youth. Like any other significant Armenian entity, it was called Ararat. My first day at the scouts was accompanied by a toothless threat by one of the fellow scouts. He said: “My dad can beat up your dad.” I had a laugh inside; to any young boy that age, the father figure is indomitable.

The long-awaited replacement for the La Crescenta County Library took a big step closer to reality in 2005, with the county approving land purchase and funding for the project. The library, which remains the number one goal for the Crescenta Valley Town Council, was stalled over location and funding issues, but those problems have apparently been resolved. The library has become the symbol of La Crescenta's search for a community center. The Town Council and other groups now meet in a small room at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station on Briggs Avenue.
