I think everyone will agree it is a busy, busy weekend in the Santa Clarita Valley. In fact, it is a really busy month.

Sip, Stroll, Savor the Sounds
One of the best events of the year will be held today. The Wine Affair: Sip, Stroll and Savor the Sounds will be held this afternoon on Town Center Drive and at The Patios.

 The Wine Affair: Sip, Stroll and Savor the Sounds, will be held in Valencia 2-6 p.m. The fourth annual event is presented
by Soroptimist International of Greater SCV.

Tickets available today at $50 each. Head over to the Rocky Mountain Candy Co. store on Town Center Drive.

This event is limited to participants ages 21 and older. Info:

Foundation for Children’s Dental Health
One of my all time favorite events is the annual fundraiser for the Foundation for Children’s Dental Health held at the home of Bob and Kathy Kellar.

What a lovely evening! I enjoyed the casino games, food from Carmela Louise Catering, the Whiskey Tasting Bar (courtesy of Noah and Brendie Heter. How many times during the evening did I hear someone say, “Hey! I didn’t even know I liked Scotch!”) and the fabulous band Sierra Highway. Visit

‘Drowsy Chaperone’
College of the Canyons music and theater departments present “The Drowsy Chaperone,” a family-friendly musical comedy, Oct. 21-30 at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Valencia.

My dear friend (and wonderful talent) Katherine Lench will perform the title role. I’ve heard the cast is very talented.

I’m also looking forward to seeing Annie Horak (she’s another talented young woman) and Hart school district board member Paul Strickland, on stage.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $12 for adults, $6 for students and seniors. Info: Box office at (661) 362-5304,

State of the City luncheon
The Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Valencia was packed without an inch to spare Thursday for the annual State of the City luncheon.

The event ran like a well-oiled clock as each member of the City Council, Bob Kellar, Laurene Weste, Laurie Ender, Marsha McLean and Frank Ferry and City Manager Ken Pulskamp spoke about the accomplishments of the city during the past year.

Kudos to Gail Ortiz and her staff for an informative and interesting event.
