On Saturday, October 27th, The Men’s Club visited what is now known as Oakridge Estates.  Some 80 years ago Barbara Stanwyck purchased a piece of property in the San Fernando Valley.  The property bordered on the north by Devonshire Blvd, on the east by Reseda Blvd, on the south by what is now Lassen, and on the west by what is now Wilbur.  On this property Ms. Stanwyck and Zeppo Marx, her agent and one of the Marx Brothers, built separate homes.  Additionally, a thoroughbred training track and ranch were added.  During this time period, Barbara and Zeppo called this the Marwych Ranch.

On Saturday, February 17, 2018, The Men’s Club visited the Santa Susan Depot Museum and Model Railroad display in Simi Valley.  Our docent, Curt, was very outgoing and added so much to the tour.  We were limited in time to two hours, but, I’m sure Curt could have gone all-day with the history and stories about the depot.

Mah Jongg†Tournament

Posted Wednesday, August 31, 2016

The Valley Jewish Community Center sponsored Mah Jongg Tournament was held on Sunday, 8/28, at the Masonic Lodge in Van Nuys.  The Tournament is arranged and run by Bill and Judi Nachenberg.  They are very organized and keep the event moving forward.  We were fortunate to sell out the day with 100 players.  The Center sponsored the event and was tasked with food for the players, which consisted of breakfast before play commenced, a mid morning snack, lunch (El Pollo Loco, another store in itself), and an afternoon snack/dessert.  Nancy Feigelson chaired the committee that organized and served the goodies.  Abby make a Tuna and a Noodle Salad that the players could not get enough of.  A Big Thanks to Nancy and her committee for their efforts and to Abby for her culinary delights.  The tournament was a success and fun for all.  Prizes ranged from $125.00 to the winner down to $25.00 to 4th place.  We have sponsored this tournament on a yearly basis and look forward to conducting another tournament in the future.
