Charity League has membership tea

The members of the Burbank Chapter of National Charity League are

busy planning their annual Membership Tea to welcome the chapter's

newest mother and daughter members.

Under the leadership of Chairwoman Nancy Baylon, the members will

transform a hall at St. Francis Xavier Church into a tropical

paradise and extend an "aloha" to these new members.


The membership drive, headed by Membership Vice President Jamie

Reeves, is underway.

National Charity League is a national mother-daughter organization

committed to community service, leadership and cultural experiences.

Mothers with daughters in middle and high school grades volunteer at

local philanthropies such as the Burbank Temporary Aid Center, Family

Service Agency, Kids Community Clinic and the Boys & Girls Club.

Cinema club to screen short films

The Los Angeles Cinema Club, now in its 73rd year, will screen a

series of short films by Glendale filmmaker Stan Whitsett during its

meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the social hall of the Little White

Chapel in Burbank.

The program will also include a screening of the Academy

Award-nominated short "De Duva" by George Coe and Anthony Lover, a

satire of the films of Ingmar Bergman and a short video on

video-editing techniques called "How I Edit."

According to Burbank resident and club President Pamela Gilmore,

the amateur photo club, which has met in Burbank for two years, is a

social and special-interest group made up of beginners and

experienced filmmakers including many international and national

contest winners.

Although the group primarily works in video formats, members also

work in color slides and film. The group is open to visitors who make

films, edit films and enjoy showing and/or watching them. The group

meets on the fourth Wednesday every month, except December. For more

information, call Gilmore at 842-3820. The church is at 1711 N. Avon

St. Refreshments will be served.
