This Month's Meeting:

Alex Theater

Monday, April 16th 7:00pm
La Crescenta Center for Spiritual Living
At the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta




Our speaker, Nina Crowe is the Director of Fund Development & Community Partnerships for Glendale Arts, the non-profit organization that operates the historic Alex Theatre. Nina will be sharing the history of the Alex Theatre and its impact in the community since 1925. She will also paint a picture about not only what Glendale Arts does, but more importantly why they do it. She often says that the Alex Theatre is the "what" they do. Glendale Arts is the "how" and "why."

St. Luke's Church is without a doubt the most spectacular native-stone architecture in the valley. In 1924, it was conceived in a painting by a famous artist and built from that painting. It's filled with gorgeous stained glass, and has an ancient set of huge electrically operated tubular chimes, which we will hear and see operated. Come for a free guided tour.

The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers was established in 1960 to carry on the legacy of Theodore Payne, a pioneering Los Angeles Nurseryman, horticulturist and conservationist widely considered to be the father of the native plant movement in California. Their headquarters is located on 22 acres in La Tuna Canyon, where they have a full-service native plant nursery, seed room, book store, art gallery, demonstration gardens and hiking trails. We'll get a guided tour of the nursery and learn about native plants.


Regular meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at the the Center for Spiritual Living, formerly known as the La Crescenta Church of Religious Science located at the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta.
