2009 The Year of Valley History
Cornucopia Thanksgiving Ornament - Collection of Janne and Jerry Fecht
It is said that the Goddess Fortuna, who has a very fine temple ruin in the Roman Forum, is the protector of women, inspiration of writers, and embodiment of generosity. Lady Fortuna (luck be a lady tonight) enters the San Fernando Valley through her symbol, the abundant Cornucopia. This very ancient symbol stems from the horn of the she goat who gave protection the Father of the Gods, Zeus (Jupiter).
Considering good Fortune, how lucky The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is to have the brilliant support and leadership of Phyllis Hansen. Her bright ideas and inspirational followthrough has been a god-send. Thanks Phyllis, we are grateful.
