The Blessing Box

Claremont UCC BoxFrom the CUCC Facebook Page:

Did you know that we have a Blessing Box on the North side of our Sanctuary? It’s stocked weekly with food, water, clothes, and toiletry items for those in need!

This Box was built as a community project between the Dreaming Lodge, Claremont UCC, and The Press Restaurant.

The Blessing Box is open and accessible 24/7! Just go to the North side of our Sanctuary (near the corner of 6th St. and Harvard Ave.).

Interested in helping to stock the Box? Go to just stop by and drop your donations inside!

Save Our Station

Claremont Metroklink Meeting

The room after 1 ½ hours when some people had left

When word got out that a study was being done about closing the Claremont Metrolink station, Claremonters showed up in force at the informational meeting on Monday night at the Hughes Community Center. 300 people filled the room to overflowing, and citizens, young and old, spilled out the doors into chairs that were set up outside with speakers set up to hear the discussion.

People were visibly and audibly concerned about the many issues of reducing public transportation options, and with many questions raised, there were a number of answers claiming, “we don’t know.”

Claremont in action. We expect nothing less. Read more at David Allen’s column in the Daily Bulletin.


Kindred Natures: Casanova and Fuller

The Claremont Museum of Art is celebrating one Claremont Depotyear in it’s new home at the Claremont Depot. At last Friday’s Art Walk the museum opened a new show – Kindred Natures: Aldo Casanova and James Fuller. The show runs through March 25.

Both Casanova and Fuller taught art at Scripps College, and the show features sculptures and watercolors of nature. Claremontography has enjoyed all the exhibits this past year, but this one stands out as a favorite.

Paradies Ice Cream and Gelato

IMG_7577This seems to be the time for openings, and Paradies Ice Cream and Gelato just opened up a Claremont location. This Danish firm started in 2000 and has 43 stores in Denmark and started opening shops in the US in 2009. On Saturday, they were giving away two scoops of ice cream to all comers. It was delicious.

They also serve Klatsch Coffee. A great plus.

The Bicycle Revolution, a documentary based on an HMC class, premiered at the Rose Hills Theater at Pomona College with a panel discussion afterwards. If you missed it, you can watch the movie here.

Work on the new Pomona College Museum of Art started with a few days of road closure.

On a walk we discovered two fountains at Scripps that we hadn’t seen before.

Eating Season has begun.

Despite warm temps, fall has shown signs of arrival.
