The La Crescenta Woman’s Club is delighted to have Kevin Tom’s Boy Scout Troop 317 Eagle Scout project to salute our Club’s history of 100-plus years, with a rock bench at our Clubhouse. We are grateful to scout leader Richard Toyon for his suggestion to Kevin, to remember our club for his Eagle Scout project.
Mike Lawler of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley has written a book including the history of the Woman’s Club, which was used to create a memorial plaque being placed in the bench, saluting our first century of singing!.
Our Club members helped gather rocks and items for our “time capsule” to be buried there, which included pictures, newspaper articles, roster, past president list from the beginning to present and much more.
