CCEA Rocket Scientists Dazzle – Event Photos

_MG_0908_11024web

The Wonders of the Cosmos presentation was a trippy, far-out exploration of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s achievements and triumphs on earth as well as into deep space and beyond.   Hosted by the Chevy Chase Estates Association’s very own Leigh Torgerson, an engineer with JPL, the afternoon began with a discussion and photo archive of the post WWII US rocket program and ended with a peek into planned future explorations to asteroids, planets, and distant solar systems.  Also contributing to the discussion was another CCEA director and JPL cohort, Douglas Hughes.  This program was made possible by JPL, and your neighbor’s membership support of our canyon CCEA.  Click for event photos.

The 79th Annual Meeting of the Chevy Chase Estates Association was a huge success attended by your friends and canyon neighbors, along with stars of local Glendale government including Council Members Laura Friedman and Vartan Gharpetian, our Mayor Ara Najarian, and Chief of Police Robert Castro.  The evening’s featured event was a detailed and informative report on GPD’s new Community Impact Bureau, a proactive special enforcement and crime analyst unit tasked with fighting the increase of crime due to easing of criminal laws.  Thanks to Lt. Oscar Rodriguez, Officer James Colman, Abby Luczon, all of the Glendale Police Department for the great presentation.  And a special thanks to Tom Lorenz for making so much of this possible.

Out with the old, in with the new.

Say goodbye to the old Chevy Chase Country Club clubhouse.  As the jewel at the heart of our community, in one form or another it has served the canyon since the late 1920’s.  But fret naught, from the rubble will soon rise a new spectacular clubhouse.  A photo slideshow of the demolition work can be seen here.
