Crescenta Valley cluster PTA: Taste of Montrose scheduled for May 4

The annual Taste of Montrose, to be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 4, is a wonderful opportunity to sample the culinary delights offered by an array of participating Montrose restaurants and support an important student program.

Tickets are $20 and all proceeds benefit Prom Plus, a post-prom event for Crescenta Valley High School seniors and their guests. Held at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, the event provides a fun yet safe alternative to unchaperoned after-prom parties.

Prom Plus will feature a variety of activities including a mock casino, mechanical bull and climbing wall. For more information and tickets, contact Robin Goldsworthy at or call (818) 248-2740.
