    Marlee Lauffer Feted At Zonta Club Of SCV Tribute Dinner

    It was an evening of laughter, tears and fundraising in the Santa Clarita Valley as Marlee Lauffer, senior vice president of marketing and communications at Newhall Land, was celebrated for her “Awesome Elegance” at the 29th annual Zonta Tribute Dinner hosted by the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley.

    The annual tribute dinner chose Lauffer to honor for her years of service to the SCV.

    “The honor really goes to Zonta and the people who are here tonight because they are raising money for great programs,” said Lauffer. “But I’m thrilled to be part of it.” by Michele E. Buttelman for November 3, 2013 for November 3, 2013

    The weather has been very un-autumn like the last few days…it’s been too warm! I hear a “cool down” is on the way. I certainly hope so! Enough of summer!

    ‘Tis the season

    The official kick-off for the holiday season will be held Nov. 15-24 when the Festival of Trees is held at Westfield Valencia Town Center, between The Patios and Sears on Valencia Boulevard in Valencia. It is one of my favorite events of the season!

    Halloween is only a few days away. Are you ready? I’ve seen some spectacular “haunts” out and about in the Santa Clarita Valley. Kudos to all who put such hard work, creativity and long hours into the effort to keep the SCV “spooky!” Top of my list is “The Dark Realm” open on Halloween night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 28621 Sugar Pine Way in Saugus. Happy Haunting!
