The COVID-19 pandemic has affected so many local families and businesses - and that's why ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING is giving away exterior painting services to a deserving family with their Paint-It-Forward COVID-19 giveaway.
Looking for something altruistic to do as a family, couple or solo? Something that's an investment in your community - and your own health, too? Then check out the 2020 Neighborhood Cleanup & Online Environmental Expo! Taking the place of the City's annual River Rally, which draws hundreds of volunteers together, this feel-good event allows residents the opportunity to clean up and care for their neighborhood while enjoying a little outdoor time in a safe and positive way.
As we've seen with most events in 2020, the State of the City luncheon is also going virtual. Although we will miss being together in one room, this new format allows for all members of our community to take part, not just the 400 or so who can fit into the room at the Hyatt. The theme this year is "Staying Connected...Staying Resilient."
In honor of our 15th anniversary, we took to social media to invite our readers to share their 2020 celebrations - and we were overwhelmed by the response. In a year marked by struggle, so many of you found reasons to smile. Thank you for letting us share in your joy! Here's to celebrating the best of 2020!

Q & A with Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Striplin
Yeah, I forgot our anniversary.
Come on, you know you've done it, too.
Q & A with Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Striplin
Now, more than ever, it is essential to spend your hard-earned dollars in the community you live in.
In a time when the world can be divided, the Santa Clarita Valley community has shown that our residents are still deeply connected. I have been encouraged to see local nonprofits and volunteers use this time to be compassionate and generous. Being physically distanced has not meant being socially disengaged. Countless groups have thought of creative ideas to serve, uplift and protect one another. This difficult season makes the resources provided by our local nonprofits even more pressing and praiseworthy.
Here's what I have always known but now there's proof: I love what I do so much that I'm happy to do it for free. When community duty, or an advertiser, calls, I show up and work it out - triple time when it's needed (Looking at you, best grad tribute ever!). My version of Safer at Home was being in my office...alone. (Thankfully, the best team in the SCV was only an internet connection away!).
When I heard my friend Mike McGrath died, it took my breath away. I'm not sure why it was such a surprise. He was 83 (the same age as my mom when she died) and the last time I saw him, he was starting to slow down a bit.
In addition to their regular studies, extracurriculars and college prep, our graduating class also learned to persevere through wildfires, evacuations, a devastating campus shooting and a global pandemic that changed the entire educational system on a dime. After a year when our students overcame more than ever, they deserve a celebration commensurate of their strength, courage and achievements. That's exactly why Inside SCV Magazine wanted to do something extra special for the Class of 2020.
In 2007, I was honored to be named Santa Clarita's "Woman of the Year." It feels like a lifetime ago - because it was. Kyle and I have since weathered numerous storms, including losing his brother, Keith; thriving through an autism diagnosis for our son; and, well, life.
The results are in: 54 percent of Boys & Girls Club alumni say the club saved their life. The Boys & Club of Santa Clarita Valley has always been a place where kids could just be kids. Whether they're shooting hoops with friends or learning a new skill from a mentor-turned-hero, the club has always been the safe space they can count on when things get tough. But the recent pandemic has had a huge impact on the club and the families we serve.
Q & A with Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Striplin
I am honored to join in the celebration of your success, and recognize the effort, sacrifice, resilience and commitment you invested to make your graduation possible.
All of us are eager to go back to our favorite local businesses, reunite with friends and family, and return to some sense of normalcy. I'm committed to equip Los Angeles County with the tools we need to reach these goals. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health approved an initial step to ease Safer at Home orders for businesses and public spaces as of May 8. We're excited to have reopened trails and golf courses and allow car dealerships, florists, and stores that sell toys, books, clothing, sporting goods, and music to offer curbside pickup.
Nothing like a pandemic to make you realize that you are now considered "compromised." When did I become the old gal? One week I am at a rock concert in Vegas and within the next couple of days I am asked to stay indoors.
In the midst of so much uncertainty, I find incredible comfort in the surefire steadiness of our community.
