Service Clubs

August 16, 2000
Victor Legerton A common feature among the numerous service clubs is a speaker or program at the weekly club meetings. Drawing from an assortment of interesting speakers and topics, these programs provide ample variety to the meetings, supplementing the fellowship and reports of service projects that are regular features. All of the clubs depend on membership to provide the time, expertise and funds to sustain their programs to improve our communities, and the weekly club meetings are an excellent opportunity to introduce guests to the organizations.

Retirement was fun for a while, but it's definitely not something I want to do for the rest of my life. And so Glendale - I'm back! In my revised position, I will be reporting on the accomplishments of service clubs, charities and nonprofit organizations in the community. In addition, the column will carry congratulatory announcements, like awards, engagements, weddings and anniversaries, so please send these items to my new email address listed at the bottom of the column. Speaking of service clubs, the Northwest Lions Club has some exciting news about their winner in the annual speaker contestant.

Recent headlines present a thought-provoking juxtaposition: “Changes sown at the Harvest Market” and “Lights, camera, money” on Feb. 3. Change is coming to Montrose, beyond the proposals for the Harvest Market, and here's what I wonder. If Montrose starts to look like Any Other Town, U.S.A., with a Starbucks on every corner, while losing a bit of our frisson due to a ban on politics at our farmer's market (can that even be legal?), will TV and movie production companies continue to be interested in filming here?

It's often said that Americans fear public speaking more than snakes, spiders or IRS agents. When I took this job, I was initially daunted by the amount of public speaking it entailed. But as I approach my third anniversary in the editor's chair, I am surprised about how much I've grown to enjoy it. People in our communities care deeply about this paper, and expect and demand much from it. Talking to people is the best way, I've found, to discover what people like and what they find lacking.

What is the future of service clubs and other nonprofit supporting organizations here in our community? Today so much of our communication and networking is Internet based. I have wondered if the Internet would cause service clubs to totally dry up and quit being a support for our community. I saw that the decline of networking and local community events largely supporting our charities would dramatically change without the club meetings. Then, I thought we might have Facebook and Twitter Clubs using Webinars to meet.

Wonderful things do happen on April 15. In 1940 on that date, the Glendale Noon Rotary Club sponsored the first meeting of the Crescenta-Cañada Rotary Club at the old Odd Fellows Hall in La Crescenta. Twenty-two men were initiated into the Rotary Club on that day. Seventy years later the Crescenta-Cañada Rotary Club continues to actively serve our community. In celebration of those 70 years, the club held a special dinner on April 13 to honor members and recognize contributions to both the community and Rotary projects worldwide.
