There wasn’t a cloud in the sky Saturday morning over Brand Park, but newly arrived snow covered sections of the park’s grounds. The wintry coating was courtesy of the city of Glendale, which was hosting its annual Winter Wonderland event for the 30th year. Even before the event had officially opened Saturday morning, about 50 parents and children had queued up inside the park, waiting to take a turn sledding down one of four snow slides that had been built on a hill.

A heart condition forced battalion fire Chief Tom Brittan from the job he loved in 1987, but the retired Glendale native wasn’t ready to stop supporting his community, he said. He turned to an organization he helped found three years earlier to fill the void. The Jewel City Kiwanis Club Glendale is a volunteer service devoted to charity and community work with schools and families in the area. Over time, Brittan recognized volunteerism was a full-time activity, and he discovered that retirement gave him the chance to give back to the community in ways he never could before with the time commitments at his job. While Brittan said giving up his position as battalion chief was a tough decision, he doesn’t regret it for a minute.

For Will Richards, Christmas is the perfect time of the year to raise awareness for an important cause. A sophomore at Crescenta Valley High School, Richards constructed a fantastic holiday light and music display, transforming the majority of his front yard at 3500 Santa Carlotta St. into a winter wonderland. When passersby tune to 99.1 FM, as directed by the signs on Richards’ sidewalk, they realize that not only do holiday tunes stream out of their car radio, but the blinking lights at the Richards home are coordinated to the songs being played.

The Crescenta Valley has had some wild weather of late with some residents even enjoying a light dusting of snow on their front lawns. But at Rosemont Middle School, there was enough snow on Jan. 25 to have a fun snowball fight, slide down an embankment and even make a tiny, but significant, snowman. The snow was actually trucked in by Snow For Parties and was part of the after school Winter Wonderland Dance sponsored by the Associated Student Body. It was dumped onto the embankment at the entrance to the cafeteria, where the dance was being held.
