THE MUSEUM OF THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY SERVES GLENDALE

9th Annual City Championship Game - November 11, 1938 - Glendale High School vrs. Hoover High School (click on image to enlarge)
City Championship Flyer - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Gary Fredburg 2008

The 16 year old boys who took to the football field at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in November 1938 are 86 years old today. In April Benito Mussilini ordered the fascist attack on Ethiopia and the football players would graduate just as the Second World War would begin. Just as Glendale boys from Hoover and Glendale High School would play their championship game in Pasadena, the residents of the San Fernando Valley did not let political boundaries restrict their lives. The Museum of the San Fernando Valley serves Glendale, Eagle Rock as well as Canoga Park and Calabasas.

MEMORIES OF THE RED BARN RESTAURANT - PANORAMA CITY

The Red Barn Restaurant was located at the crossroads of Parthenia and Van Nuys Boulevard. It was a much appreciated cafe, specializing in American bar-b-que and traditional meals. The Red Barn was just across the street from the old Hughes Market.

BACK FROM THE AIDS LIFECYCLE RIDE

Boy Scouts Merit Badge Program 1955 - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Gary Fredburg - 2008

I just got home from being a "roadie" on the AIDS Lifecycle Ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The effort involved 2500 riders and 500 roadies. The week-long effort raised millions of dollars for AIDS care, HIV medications and AIDS prevention.
