SCV Scene: Happy Mother’s Day to SCV moms

Happy Mother’s Day to all the hard-working mothers in the Santa Clarita Valley. I hope you have received breakfast in bed, or a nice Mother’s Day Brunch at the very least! One of the truest statements I’ve ever heard is "No one ever loves you as much as your mother." It’s something to remember, always.

Taste of the Town

I’ve heard from many members of the community that the recent 25th anniversary Taste of the Town was the best ever. I must concur. From the food to the weather, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. I was also pleased to find that my table was placed so that I could actually have a conversation with my table mates, this year. Unlike previous years when the band was too loud to enjoy the event. I’ve heard from a few others that may have been seated right in line with the speakers that it was still too loud for their tastes, but I was pleased.

More ‘Taste’

The food was particularly spectacular this year. Did you try the strawberry gazpacho from the Channel Islands Yacht Club? In a word, fabulous! The Channel Islands Yacht Club is the brainchild of my friends Tom and Anita Petersen, but I would have said the same thing if the food was prepared by strangers. Great job guys!

The 15th Relay For Life

Can it really be 15 years since Relay for Life arrived in the SCV? Join this 24-hour fundraising event for the American Cancer Society 10 a.m. 10:00 a. m. Saturday at Central Park on Bouquet Canyon Road in Saugus.

The SCV Relay For Life is one of California’s largest Relay For Life events, closing in on half a million dollars worth of donations for the American Cancer Society. This money funds cancer research, education, patient services and legislation.

Cancer touches virtually everyone’s life at some point — my father died of a brain tumor and my uncle died of lung cancer nearly two years ago.

Heather Warrick

The SCV Relay For Life will hold a special Luminaria ceremony to celebrate the life of Heather Warrick, "The Cancer Princess", who lost her battle with cancer in January.

Professional singer, Makeda, has altered her tour schedule so that she can perform.

Heather’s family will be speaking, and there will be many other special touches to remember Heather who touched so many others’ lives.
