BURBANK SERVICE CLUBS
Bethel 97 of the International Order of Job’s Daughters recently had
an Enchilada Dinner -- to the delight of Mexican food fans. Proceeds
from the festive and fiesta-like event fund costs for its annual
Grand Bethel trip. Bethel 97 was able to send 16 members last year
and a like number will be sent again in June.
Two members were chosen as Grand Bethel Girls in 2002 -- Stephanie
Enokian as a Grand Bethel Senior Custodian and Jayne Allen as a
representative to Montana and Colorado. It is hoped the Bethel will
receive the same recognition this year.
Bethel 97 meets on the first Friday night and third Saturday
morning of each month at the Burbank Masonic Center, 406 Irving
Drive. For membership information, call 846-3042.
JAYCEES ARE JAMMING ALONG
The month of March was a marathon of events for the Burbank Junior
Chamber of Commerce. In addition to hosting a bowling social, kicking
off a marketing campaign and having a “Battles of the Sexes”
communications seminar, the Jaycees also took time to hear success
tips from author and researcher Alexander Avila. What’s more, the
Jaycees also sponsored the annual Miss Burbank and Teen Burbank
Burbank Jaycees meet on the second and third Thursdays of each
month at the Burbank Chamber of Commerce, 200 W. Magnolia Blvd. For
membership information, call Jackie Lewis at 438-2042.
ANOTHER BARNE-YARD STORY
Burbank Magnolia Optimists invited past worshipful master of
Burbank Masonic Lodge #406 and High Twelve Club junior past
president, Chris Barnes, to speak at a recent meeting. He was
introduced by Goodie Glance -- a member of all three groups.
Glance noted that in addition to running a successful
plastic-injection molding company in the San Gabriel Valley, Barnes
also has a long history in Burbank. He met his future wife, Judy, at
John Burroughs High School, has helped out on countless Burbank On
Parades with the DeMolays and Masons, and he still checks out old
cars with the Road Kings at the Bob’s Big Boy parking lot on Friday
nights. As a token of his generosity, every Optimist in attendance
received one of his company-made champagne cork pullers.
Burbank Magnolia Park Optimist Club meets at 7:30 a.m. Thursdays
at De Bell Municipal Golf Course, 1500 Walnut Ave. For membership
information, call Gene Gardner at 845-1192.
