Church’s history subject of meeting The next meeting of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley will focus on the history of the La Crescenta Church of Religious Science, which today is known as the La Crescenta Center for Spiritual Living. The story behind this facility is similar to the stories of many local churches in that it can be seen as archetypical of organized religious groups in CV. Its story began in the post-WWII building boom, with husband and wife Clifford and Sally Chaffee meeting with like minded friends in a private home.

So Glendale Memorial Hospital and Medical Center’s donation Tuesday of toys and several boxes of food came as a huge relief. “They have been asking for things for Christmas,” she said.

Janet LaFevre, senior marketing manager for the Galleria, said she expected the center's sales figures to increase at least 5% over the same period last year.
