Even if the economy is still in a slump, the ladies at the La Crescenta Woman’s Club evidently don’t know it. The clubhouse was bursting with 180 members and guests for a full morning and afternoon of activities on March 26. After a brief business meeting, out came dozens of silent-auction baskets, tickets for opportunity prizes and lunch. And all that was before the live auction and fashion show. Co-presidents Genny Bundick and Carol Huntwork reminded their audience that this annual fashion show is one of many activities going on this year representing the club’s 100 years of community service.

One of the highlights of membership in the Verdugo Club on Glenoaks Boulevard in Glendale was the fashion shows. The club, which opened in 1979, was a much larger facility than its previous gathering place in the old Stepper Auditorium on Broadway and provided a better setting for such events. The fashion shows grew out of ideas put forth by some of the members, including Walter and Margi Stolrow. He was general manager of Webb’s Department Store and Webb’s Store for Men and Boys for many years and took an active interest in community affairs.

L'aureole, a philanthropic women's club, celebrated its Perennial Rose Luncheon and Fashion Show in grand style earlier this month. To pamper the guests, ladies were shuttled by golf cart to the entrance of the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. Much easier on one's feet than climbing the hill. President Jeannine Jones gave a spirited welcome. Master of ceremonies duties were handled expertly by Harold Scoggins, chief of the Glendale Fire Department. And since proceeds went to the Glendale Salvation Army's Zone program, a positive experience that keeps youths busy after school, six participants told the crowd what they've learned from it. Introduced by Lt. Joshua Sneed, one high school girl said she started with the program in second grade.

It seems as if the 40 dedicated women members of Las Candelas become several hundred as each puts in triple duty to produce their every-other-year fashion show benefit. This year's benefit held on Monday (Feb. 25) at the L.A. Marriott-Burbank Airport Hotel celebrated Las Candelas' 60 years of service. The fundraiser's theme, Springtime's Promise, was carried out through the pastel colors of ensembles modeled from the Lourdes Chavez Collection. But before the fashion show, plenty more went on. A packed reception allowed guests to indulge in their favorite pre-luncheon drink and peruse the boutique fashions, purses and jewelry.

The Queen of England has nothing on Glendale's Assistance League. The League created high tea in its Chapter House on April 17. Members and guests, all looking like very queenly, were encouraged to wear hats to tea. All that was missing were the white gloves and fascinators.

Other event chairmen were Mary Lo Follett, in charge of reservations; Anne Wilson, who as treasurer, handled the $20 admission fees; Sylvia Kowal crafted the place card calligraphy; Sally Benson made the 22 centerpieces of spring flowers and Margaret Hammond (chapeau and all)

Marilyn Monroe look-alike Ruth McNevin kicked off the Verdugo Hills Hospital Foundation luncheon by singing “Happy Birthday” to Chief Executive Len LaBella. The bit was reminiscent of the real Marilyn singing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy. Since Verdugo Hills Hospital has its own “president” in LaBella, those in the know got the joke. On Friday, Women's Council members carried out their Marilyn Monroe theme with a silent auction basket of Marilyn memorabilia and a touch of the old Hollywood in the council room.
