Jewels in the Crown


Dear Editor,

There are many jewels in this canyon, but I want you to consider supporting two gems at this time.

The first is the Topanga Community Club (TCC). I was awestruck to see how the community came together to build the new playground at our Community House. Our ancestors are looking down at us now saying, “You finally got it.” The playground was built the same way the House was—by the community, for the community. So if you are not a member please consider joining the TCC. While you’re at it, please send a donation to the playground fund that is still about 10 percent short of its goal. The other gem is the Topanga Messenger that is having a subscription drive with thank-you gifts to everyone who subscribes. Canyon artists, businesses and entrepreneurs have come forward with some awesome gifts, some one-of-a-kind. Support your local paper and subscribe by December 31 to get your name in the hat for a chance to win an amazing bonus gift on January 19.

Meanwhile, remember to shop local, especially during the holidays, and keep it in the Canyon.
