What's Happening in Sunland-Tujunga? LOTS!

There are so many great things coming up in the next week or so in our community. Many choices that are great for the whole family, are affordable and some of it actually benefits some very worthy causes! Here are your options:

Friday evening at 8pm, the 22nd, at Comfort and Joy Cafe in Tujunga, The Foothills Performing Arts Council  presents it's Foothills Showcase! Come and Enjoy: Dinner - Appetizer - Dessert - Entertainment, all in an Intimate Patio Setting AND no cover charge! Hosted by THE WALKING MAN BAND featuring Tim J Borquez, Cecil Broughton, Jim Wheeler & David Wayne Jones. Special Guests include:  Laura Toyne, Karly Peterson, Mandie Jones, Adam Broughton and David Wayne Jones

The McGroarty Arts Center in Tujunga is holding it's annual art fair this Saturday, the 23rd.  The Art Fair is a chance for you to meets artists, purchase affordable local artwork, listen to music, and enjoy smiling faces in the Foothills!

If you want to get your hands dirty and do a little work for the community, come help out with the work to beautify the Sunland Welcome Nature Garden, at the intersection of Sunland Blvd. and the 210 Freeway (just west of Sizzler). Please come join the group this Saturday, March 23, from 9 to noon. Bring gloves and a trowel for putting the plants in the ground. If you can bring a hard rake for spreading mulch, that would be great. The team is doing a great job to make this gateway to Sunland beautiful and more environmentally friendly.



The Sunland-Tujunga Rotary Club is holding it's first annual "Wounded Warrior Ride" to benefit those who gave all for our country. The event is Saturday, March 30th and kicks off with a sumptuous buffet FOR ONLY $10 at Comfort and Joy Cafe (you know that is going to be amazing!).
