2015 Community Grant Awards Luncheon
The Community Grants committee is pleased to announce that they will be awarding approximately $35,000.00 in Community Grants to fifteen (15) worthy non profit organizations operating in the Pasadena area. Those fifteen organizations will each send a representative to join us for lunch on April 29th when the committee will present their grant checks.   This year the Grants Committee chose to narrow their focus to Pasadena 501C3 organizations that serve low income seniors and emancipated foster youth ages 18-22 as those are two at risk groups that truly need support.   There were approximately twenty organizations that submitted requests this year -a smaller number due to the narrowing of the categories entertained. Thus, the allocations offered are larger than last year. It was the goal of the committee this year-to offer a more meaningful amount by limiting the number of grants offered. A program will be provided at the meeting denoting the recipients, the project submitted for support and the grant awarded.

The Scoot Zone

This week Eric Olson started things off with a very topical song selection, in honor of our astronomer-guest: "When You Wish Upon a Star," accompanied by star-in-his-own-right Ross Jutsum.

Frankly Speaking

Believe it not, I have been burdening everyone with my inartful style of leadership for nine months. It is no doubt time for a quarterly - or three quarter - review. What is the consensus? Most likely: (1) Is Frank wearing the same suit and tie again? (2) I swear, if Frank takes the microphone and starts roving the floor again, I am going to scream out in pain; (3) So, what did he forget to announce this time? (4) The sad thing is that Frank actually believes he is being funny. (5) Is this guy really a lawyer?

The Scoot Zone for March 18th By Mary Lou Byrne, Bureau Chief

Phil "Seamus" O'Miles led a belated St. Patrick's Day sing-along with "The Wild Rover" (a drinkin' song, according to Phil) and a heartfelt rendition of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" (with Ross Jutsum on piano) which Phil notes is "popular any time." In her invocation, Deborah Lewis noted that yesterday was St. Patrick's Day, and according to legend St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland. And tomorrow is St. Joseph's Day, when the swallows return to Capistrano.
