Spring has sprung. The heat was on this past week as spring roared into the SCV. Any bad weather this weekend probably is winter’s last gasp. I will miss it.


Fabulous fish Fridays coming to a close

Friday will be the last chance to enjoy the amazing fish fry at St. Clare’s Catholic Church in Canyon Country. How did those six weeks fly by?

We’ll have to wait an entire year before the next fish fry, so make sure you don’t miss the last weekend.

St. Clare’s Catholic Church 34th annual Lenten Fish Fry will be held 4:30 to 8 p.m., available for dine in or take out, 19606 Calla Way, Canyon Country.

Fashion, fun and fantasy

The recent Fashion, Fun and Fantasy fashion show and supper club to benefit Soroptimist International of Greater SCV was among the most entertaining evenings of the year — with something for everyone.

I loved the comedian, Jackie Flynn, who is a resident of Stevenson Ranch.

The fantasy hair show by Salon Glo was like nothing I’ve ever seen. What a treat.

The fashions from White House/Black Market, J. David Custom Clothiers, Edwards Lowell of Beverly Hills, Classic Designs Jewelers and Fresh Boutique were amazing, as were all the models.

I love seeing all my friends and neighbors on stage strutting their stuff.

Kudos to everyone involved, including event chairwoman Shelley Hann and the SCV’s emcee, Ed Masterson.


Best wishes for Myrna Condie

We were delighted to hear that Myrna Condie is back home in the SCV after surgery to replace her pacemaker. Myrna had surgery March 19 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank.

This was Myrna’s eighth pacemaker surgery.

In addition to replacing the pacemaker, the doctors wanted to remove some of the old wires from previous pacemakers.

According to husband Gary Condie, the doctor said they broke two surgical instruments in the process of the lead extraction.

The doctor had hoped to remove multiple bad leads, but was only able to remove one because of the build up of calcification and scar tissue.

The good news is that the bad lead has been replaced, she has a shiny new pacemaker and her heart is beating fine — and she’s back home.

Myrna and Gary Condie are among the SCV’s most ardent supporters of the Boys & Girls Club of the SCV, among other nonprofits.

In addition, Myrna is a 2012 nominee for SCV Woman of the Year.

We hope Myrna recovers quickly from her surgery.
