It should be a cooler day today to enjoy the annual Taste of the Town at Mann Biomedical Park in Valencia.

Taste of the Town will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year with the most food and drink vendors it has ever hosted.

Everyone in attendance will be treated to a "taste" of unlimited food and drink samples for the all-inclusive price of $65.

Man/Woman of Year

It was great fun to watch Bill Lively "sing in" the winners of the 2013 SCV Man and Woman of the Year Friday evening at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. Kudos to Elizabeth Hopp and Steve Sturgeon for their lives of giving back to the Santa Clarita Valley.

Seen at MWOY

It was nearly a full house in the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt. In addition to all the nominees there were a great many previous Man and Woman of the Year winners and the usual crowd of community supporters. Among those spotted at the event: Frank and Charlotte Kleeman, Bob and Kathy Kellar, TimBen and Ingrid Boydston, Laurene Weste and Jim McCarthy, Bill Bolde, Harold and Jacquie Petersen, Gary Hann, Marlee Lauffer, Ed Bolden, Adele Macpherson, Tony and Reena Newhall, Wayne and Dianne Crawford, Ed Masterson, Pauline and Duane Harte and Barbara Sterns Cochran.


Chairs of the 2013 SCV Man and Woman of the Year event, Myrna Condie and Tom Dierckman did an outstanding job of crafting a tight, keep-it-moving evening. The event was basically "all in and all done" by 9 p.m. Great job! I think they did such an outstanding job in keeping the evening moving they should be in charge of every event in the SCV!

Opera League

The Santa Clarita Opera League gathering will be held Monday, May 13 at a private home in Stevenson Ranch. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a potluck dinner followed at 7 p.m. by a lecture on Puccini’s opera "Tosca." The Santa Clarita Opera League invites everyone who loves opera to join them in their activities. For more information call Ann Anderson 661-259-9619.

Men of Harmony

The Santa Clarita Men of Harmony barbershop quartet singers are looking for new members. They will have a singing audition on Tuesday, May 14 at Valencia Library. If you are interested call Ted Rafalovich 661-284-7505.

Petersens add to family

Kudos to Jacquie and Harold Petersen on their 10th great-grandchild who should arrive soon. The Petersens recently welcomed their ninth great-grandchild. They have 10 grandchildren and will soon have 10 great-grandchildren! Jacquie tells me it will five girls and five boys.
