Brightening someone's day
The group was delivering the blooms as part of the hospice's new Friends and Flowers program. Stores like the Newbury Park Trader Joe's, event venues like the Walnut Grove in Moorpark and local churches donate their unsold floral arrangements to the Thousand Oaks-based nonprofit, which re-bundles them into bouquets for patients in board-and-care homes, assisted living facilities and Los Robles Regional Medical Center. They also accept flowers from weddings and events.
Hospice volunteer Judy Bader said the program, which launched in April, was created as a means to regularly visit patients with life-limiting illnesses and to leave a happy, colorful reminder that they are loved.

"The flowers are a conduit to conversation," the Thousand Oaks resident said.
The proof is in the pudding- or the peonies, as the case may be.
When a volunteer handed a bouquet to Gordon "Steve" Stevenson, the 97-year-old England native began to reminisce about the rose garden he once tended outside his home.
"I had dozens of varieties," the retired concert pianist said. "Roses are my favorite, but these are nice, too."
Stevenson lives in a home run by Compassionate Care Residence RCFE, a company owned by Kathie Flood and her husband, David.
Flood is a massage therapist who opened her first assisted-care home in 2012 to take care of her grandmother. Grandma Betty sti... Jan 12, 2017
Singers fill arts center with holiday cheer
The vocal programs at Conejo Valley high schools are each marked by a particular flavor.
Newbury Park High focuses on vocal performance and harmony. Westlake High zeros in on a variety of ensemble groups and flashy packaged show-choir numbers, while Thousand Oaks High is distinguished by exuberant homegrown choreography.
The mixed choir began TOHS’ concert with a lively version of the 16th century Finnish carol “Personent Hodie,” followed by a pensively beautiful version of Ruth Morris Gray’s somber “How Like a Winter,” whose melancholy words were drawn from Shakespeare’s 97th sonnet.
Also included were the Hebrew blessing “Shiru L’Adonai,” Ruth Morris Gray’s driving spiritual “Sing With the Angel” and a show-choir version of Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas hit, “Underneath the Tree.”
The 18-member vocal ensemble presented the secular “Here We Come A-Caroling,” which was followed by a trio consisting of Emma Roth, Desiree Hayden and Alyssa Hernandez singing Craig Hella Johnson’s creative pairing of the 16th century hymn “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming” with Amanda McBroom’s “The Rose,” made famous by Bette Midler.
The ensemble then expanded into show-choir mode for a medley of high-energy production numbers, matching familiar holiday favorites like “Silver Bells” and “Deck the Halls” with lesser-known tunes like Hoagy Carmichael’s “The White World of Winter,” which featured choreography by senior Kristen Wisneski.
The concert choir portion of the show began with “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlem... (Thousand Oaks Acorn)Oct 27, 2016

Enjoying the Santa Monica Mountains: Looking for Wild Flowers
Even without flowers the sight of green hills after the winter rain is magical. To experience these beautiful meadows head to Rancho Sierra Vista in Newbury Park where there are a range of hikes from easy kid-friendly trails to the tough climb up to Mt Boney Peak. (This takes you into Pt Mugu State Park). Or visit the rolling hills of Cheeseboro and Palo Comado Canyons in Agoura Hills. And you can even walk to the ocean from the Conejo Valley. Just follow Sycamore Canyon from Rancho Sierra Vista for eight miles and you can enjoy a picnic at the beach. Wherever you go in the mountains we hope you enjoy spring in this beautiful part of the country!
Charlotte Parry is Executive Director of the Santa Monica Mountains Fund, the official non-profit for the National Park Service in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area supporting wildlife research, education, trails and facilities.
