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

Pageant.

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.
