KATHERINE YAMADA Most of the people who settled in Glendale in the early 1900s came from the Midwest or the East Coast. Far from home and family, they banded together with others who were building this entirely new community, socializing through churches, schools and organizations. Around 1907, several residents formed a group called the Glendale Old Settlers Assn. They first met in July 1907 in Echo Park. Glendale's only newspaper at the time, a weekly called the News, contained a full description of the event.

Dear Marineh Khachadour, I agree with you that we must learn to accept differences, however I must say that the town of Glendale has changed a lot over the past 10 years. I grew up in Echo Park, which is very close to Glendale. As a teenager, my friends and I would take the bus from Echo Park to Glendale to shop at the mall, go to the movies, and hang out at the arcade that is on Brand Boulevard. In your letter, you state that immigrants have a right to complain, well I'm not an immigrant and I think that it is very rude when you go into various stores around Glendale and the people who work there are speaking Armenian, they don't even acknowledge that you are there (sometimes to me it seems that they don't care because I am not Armenian)
