Time for action editors note for one Arcadian s opinion of to s Matt a we suggest you read the poem by p. J. A a Peter Peterson on the editorial Page of today a paper. In the midst of a constantly increasing clamor by interested local citizens for the promotion of a Celebration honouring Arcadia spurred on by the successful round of celebrations now being staged by neighbouring communities All about us Arcadia seems about to Muff what appears to be the finest Opportunity to solve this problem Ever presented. Fiesta de Santa Anita Celebration staged each year for several years past by Church of the holy Angels Parish at the turf club has enjoyed so much Success that it has become simply too big for the Church group to handle alone. As a result the Church leaders have offered to share it with the City of Arcadia As a civic project of City wide proportions in which All civic service and religious groups might participate and share in the very considerable profits possible to derive from such a promotion. For the past two months tile Arcadia merchants association has had a committee working on it project to take Over the fiesta with the backing and cooperation of All groups in the City however to Date the project has met with a degree of apathy on the part of civic and service club leaders that is most disheartening to those who see in this offer a project of unsurpassed value both to the various organizations and the City As a whole. Here is a civic Celebration with a setting unmatched by any neighbouring City with an established name and reputation which Many believe Arcadia could assume in the building of a most successful Celebration. If you Are one of those who believe that this offer should be taken up and pushed through to the great Success it can be please do not hide your Light under a Bushel but write or Telephone your opinions to the Arcadia Tribune. They will Lee printed and by their volume and sincerity the City a leaders will know whether to proceed or not. We believe that Arcadia needs such a Celebration to Center attention on the City once each year in the manner adopted by so Many of our neighbors to the advantage of merchants and property owners alike. It will take work and it will take Money but it will come Back to you four fold.
