We Ate, We Sang and We Supported at May’s Fancy Food Truck Friday.

 The joint was certainly jumping last Friday night and what fun it was! From sliders to cupcakes and everything in between, Altadena loosened their ties and rocked to the beat!

Our evening was made even better by the musical sounds of Pasadena McKinley School’s “McKinley Rock Stars”  We love this group of kids who are supported by a wonderful organization called “Little Kids Rock”.  With a little help from their friends, these youngsters are learning how to play guitar, drums and keyboard!  Thanks Mr. Rojas and Rock Stars for spreading the beat to Altadena!

McKinley Rock Stars played tunes by Taylor Swift, the Beatles and some of their own compositions!

On October 17, Webster’s Community Pharmacy owners Michael and Meredith Miller were recognized by the Altadena Town Council (ATC) with a Community Service Award. They were honored for their efforts in bolstering community involvement with the creation of Fancy Food Truck Fridays. The Millers were joined at the podium by the owners of Webster’s Liquors and Webster’s Stationers.

Since purchasing the pharmacy, the Millers have used their talents and passion for the Altadena community to make Fancy Food Truck Fridays a reality. It’s by no means an easy feat. Many weeks of consistent efforts had to be made in order to acquire the appropriate permits. Once approved, Meredith focuses her marketing strengths into making sure that the Altadena community and neighboring cities have the opportunity to enjoy this monthly event.

Each second Friday of the month, it’s heartwarming to see so many locals and families support Fancy Food Truck Fridays. It is that same support that fuels future events and inspires creative new ways to keep the momentum going. The Millers’ are currently planning Holiday-themed gatherings at the pharmacy, so look for them soon!

“Pills For The Cure” A Special Trunk Show

On Saturday, October 22nd, Webster’s Community Pharmacy will host a very special trunk show featuring “Designer Drug Jewelry” by local Altadena artist, Susan Braig. Her unique eye for design will inspire you to look at life’s most painful instances in a new way. The high cost of battling this deadly disease inspired Susan’s analogy of her prescriptions as “little jewels.” Since then she has recycled donated expired gel caps and tablets to use as gemstones and found items to create earrings, bracelets, tiaras, necklaces and rings at her studio in Altadena. Her jewelry has served as part of her health care reform activism as well as her efforts to recycle. Susan points out that her jewelry is wearable since, “All pills are denatured with glue and varnishes, so they are no longer usable as drugs or medical supplies.” The demand to showcase her jewelry at craft/trunk shows and outside orders has helped to fund some of the medical bills that have accumulated in her battle with cancer.

At Webster’s Community Pharmacy we support local heros such as Susan Braig. Co-owner, Meredith Miller commented, “We’re excited to host this incredible innovator at our pharmacy! Come to our special Trunk Show to meet Susan in person and hear her story first hand, as you help to support breast cancer research.” To honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, partial proceeds from Pills For The Cure will benefit the Susan G Komen Foundation of LA County.

The intriguing pairing of Webster’s Community Pharmacy and Susan Braig was sparked by a common denominator of prescription drugs and medicines. At a time when healthcare is weighing heavily on everyone, this is a way to bring a little levity and sparkle to the day and remind Altadena residents that inspiration is created right in our own neighborhood. In addition to Susan’s jewelry, Webster’s Community Pharmacy has a unique selection of “For The Cure” gifts and collectibles which are available for sale. Many of these items are also supported with a charitable donation to breast cancer research.
