Easter week Kids out of school for spring break, eggs cheaper than any other time of year, pretty flowers and the smell of a ham cooking; it’s a great time of year!
Important dates to save:
Thursday April 23rd — Got golf? The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce does. Our annual golf classic helps support our scholarship program, so come on out and have some fun while supporting a high school student who is going to attend college.
Thursday April 30th — The Montrose-Verdugo City/Spaar Heights Neighborhood Association is sponsoring its first “Neighborhood Awareness Meeting.” Please join the association directors and Glendale Police Officer Matt Zakarian to discuss the issues that affect our neighborhoods and how to become active in the community. Come meet your neighbors at Sparr Heights Senior Center located at 1613 Glencoe Way at 7 p.m.
Saturday May 2nd — Our first Artwalk is back and won’t you be surprised? Come see what I’m talking about; watch the artists creating the beauty right before you. You know Mother’s Day is just a week later, so you will need to be on Honolulu Avenue anyway shopping for just the right gift for your favorite person in the world. Don’t forget to make your lunch or dinner reservations early as this is known to be the busiest day in the restaurant industry. Calling all artists to participate!
I attended the “Coffee with the COPPS” last week (minus the coffee). By the way — what a great bakery! Oven Fresh Bakery and Café has a wide variety of items to choose from. It’s good to attend events like this as you will always walk away with more knowledge. I learned the Glendale Police Department has launched a new e-mail service called APB Glendale. This free service keeps you informed when you sign up to receive notifications of upcoming events, public safety tips, and wanted or missing persons bulletins. The more the public knows the better you are able to help the police. To subscribe for e-mail alerts, visit the department’s website at www.ci.glandale.ca.us/police and click on the red e-mail alert button.
