Our community members were rocking around Christmas Tree Lane this evening! This beautiful tradition has brought Altadena residents and visitors together in celebration for 99 years and maintains its reputation as the oldest large-scale outdoor Christmas display in the world!

There’s nothing more special than gathering around a table with friends and neighbors. It was a pleasure to join the Agua Dulce Women's Club for the annual Parade of Tables and a privilege to present them with a check for emergency kits to keep our community safe.

When we support our diverse small businesses and encourage their growth, our community is stronger. Congratulations to the local businesses who completed the @SBAgov International Trade Program and thank you to Tyrone and Tyron Hampton for inviting me to celebrate with you all.

This holiday season, I've seen our community members cultivate joy and generosity. Read more in this week's edition of Keeping up with Kathryn: https://t.co/9l2J5sbmbN
