by | Aug 31, 2017 | A Note From the Publisher

September is one of our favorite times of the year, the weather is cooling down, kids are going back to school and there is an incredible buzz in the air as our local non-profits gear up for their busy season.
Before we celebrate our local non-profits, however, let’s take the time to commemorate the fallen on Saturday, September 9, with HandsOn Santa Clarita’s 9/11 Day of Service. This year hundreds of volunteers will donate their time to work on many projects throughout the valley, they are looking for volunteers so visit their website for more information, handsonscv.org.
Our hearts were filled with sadness as we learned of the passing of Santa Clarita’s resident Bill Cloyd, Sr. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. Read about Bill’s life in our tribute on page 6.
Throughout the years, we have been a proud supporter of the Michael Hoefflin Foundation and all the work they do for the children and the families of the children with pediatric cancer. It is an honor to feature the boys and girls of the Michael Hoefflin Foundation on the cover of this issue. Join us as we celebrate the 24th annual Evening Under the Stars Gala Dinner and Auction, which will take place on Saturday, September 16 at the Mann Biomedical Park. We are excited that the Kelly Rae Band will be this year’s entertainment. Everyone is welcome, see the story on the opposite page, join in the fun while supporting a great cause.
