Lineup of Bands Announced
We are very excited that young actors Matthew and Benjamin Royer will be emceeing the event! Here's the afternoon lineup:
Liam Farrell: I’ve read that the Topanga Community club (TCC) began in 1949, can you tell me about the early years?
Kelly Rockwell, Topanga Community Club Corresponding Secretary: The property was put together by citizens who saw a need for a place to gather and socialize. The Community Club was first known as the Topanga Community Woman’s Club when it was formed in the late 1940s. The House was built by volunteers, which is a tradition carried on today – our ballfield, and more recently the playground, was also built by the community. A great resource to learn more about the history of the Club is in The Topanga Story, which is available at the Topanga Library or through the Topanga Historical Society.
I have known Wyatt Babcock since we were just months old. Who knew that eleven years later we’d still be such great friends. At one time we played club soccer together, but my path has taken me towards hockey, while Wyatt still has a passion for soccer. I’ve been asked to speak to Wyatt about his charity and the event.
Mollie Hogan, the founder and Executive Director of the Nature of Wildworks, started her organization out of the love in her heart for animals in need. Back in 1993, Mollie was working at the LA Zoo, more specifically a show called Wild in the City. When the show came to an unexpected end, the animals were all transferred to their new temporary home, the Moorpark Teaching Zoo, where Mollie was an instructor.
