Orange County Almanac
The Laguna Beach County Water District is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.
“We’re the second-oldest water district of our type in the state,” General Manger Joe Sovella said.
“County” is in the district’s name because it was formed in 1925, two years before Laguna Beach incorporated. The district headquarters, next to City Hall, was built in 1927 and remodeled in 1990.
A happy/sad face monitor once stood out front to let residents know if water consumption was up or down. But with water use now steadily lower, the district removed the sign six months ago so the smiling face wouldn’t lose its impact, Sovella said.
The Children’s Theatre Company of Minnesota will bring classical literature to life with a rendition of “Animal Fables From Aesop.”
The show at the Irvine Barclay Theatre features original music and dance numbers geared toward children and adults.
The performance begins at 7 p.m. at the theater, 4242 Campus Drive in Irvine. Tickets range from $10 to $15.
