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.

VJCC Helps Operation Gratitude

Posted Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Valley Jewish Community Center helped Operation Gratitude make packages for our troops overseas.  The majority of the people helping were volunteers from all over the Valley and greater L.A. area.  Our Platoon consisted of 15 – 18 Center Members.  As an Army we packed over 3000 boxes heading to our Troops. It was a very gratifying experience for all, some of whom were repeat attendees, but, the majority of us were first timers.  On behalf of the Center, I would like to thank all that attended and hope we will do it again in the future.  In addition to the care packages, other volunteers were making Quick Deploy Paracord Bracelets, which is 7 ½ feet of parachute cord rolled into a bracelet that can be unwrapped and use in any emergency.  Cards and letters were readied for shipment and Teddy Bears were stuffed and made ready for delivery to the children of deployed troops.  The whole experience is an easy way to say thanks to our Troops who serve to help keep us safe.
