    Zest Gala for Pasadena Senior Center


    The Pasadena Senior Center’s annual and elegant Zest Gala honors Rosemary “Rary” Simmons, a long-time community volunteer whose good works have impacted thousands in the greater Pasadena area.

    Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction during a 5:00pm reception will be followed by dinner and the program at 6:00pm. Dr. Drew Pinsky, known to international television and radio audiences as Dr. Drew, will serve as master of ceremonies. He is a prominent Pasadena physician who is an addiction specialist and media personality.

    Rosemary “Rary” Simmons was born and raised in the Los Angeles area, graduated from Occidental College, and is a longtime resident of San Marino. She serves on the advisory committee for the Pasadena-based Cancer Support Community; serves on the board of directors for Hill-Harbison House, which primarily benefits San Marino Girl Scout troops and City of San Marino Recreation Department programs; and is the only emeritus member of the Huntington Hospital board of directors, where she chairs the Philanthropic Committee.

    She previously served as board chair for the Sycamores Boys’ Home in Pasadena (now Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services) and has served on boards and committees for the Los Angeles Music Center, Hillsides home for foster children, and Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts. She served for 10 years on the San Marino City Council, was its first female member and went on to become the first female mayor of San Marino.

    For more information or to receive an invitation to the Zest gala, email the Pasadena Senior Center or call 626.685.6756. Proceeds will help fund the Pasadena Senior Center’s enrichment classes and social service programs.

    Metro Community Meeting: Bus Rapid Transit


    Metro is studying implementation of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service from North Hollywood to Pasadena and seeks feedback during several community meetings. In Pasadena, that event takes place at the Pasadena Senior Center on October 3.  

    Project Overview: 

    The North Hollywood to Pasadena BRT Project extends approximately 16 miles and will provide a connection between the Metro Red, Orange, and Gold Lines. The areas that will be served by the proposed project include the Cities of Burbank, Glendale, Los Angeles’ Eagle Rock community and Pasadena. In planning for this project, Metro will complete an Alternatives Analysis and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) that will consider various routes.

    The service will include enhanced transit stops with accessibility improvements and measures to improve bus travel speeds, which could include traffic signal enhancements, dedicated bus lanes, and one-mile spacing between stations.


    The study area extends from North Hollywood into the San Gabriel Valley through the Cities of Burbank, Glendale, the community of Eagle Rock in Los Angeles, and Pasadena. The current study includes an Alternatives Analysis, followed by an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed route. To date, an initial feasibility study has been completed which identified two potential routes. Corridors under consideration include Central Ave, Alameda Ave, Chandler Blvd, Magnolia Street and Green/Union Street Couplet. Metro is seeking input from the public on the preferred route and station locations.
