Las Candelas honors old, welcomes new

Las Candelas held a fall party at the home of Bruce and Debbie Hinckley with the theme of “Tropical Paradise.” Fifty members and their guests honored outgoing president Bobbi Gangi and welcomed Monica Sierra as new president.

The members have continued with their volunteer efforts at Hillsides Education Center, Hathaway-Sycamores, Glendale Healthy Kids and Glendale YWCA.

The Provisional Members of the organization were honored at a luncheon hosted by Jeannie Flint at Oakmont Country Club. The new provisional members are Caryolyn Beaton, Ann Louise Chris-Tensen and Patti Baker.

The Board of Directors who attended the luncheon included Monica Sierra, Cathy Keen, Shirley Johnstone, Karen Whyte, Jeri Benton, Ellyn Semler, Debbie Hinckley, Diane Russell, Ginny Simpson and Anna Brewer.

Las Candelas was founded in 1953 and its members serve children’s mental health needs in the community and promote a better understanding of mental health.
