Photograph caption dated September 14, 1962 reads, "Membership drive for the Valley Symphony Association will be supervised by members of Cadenzas, Mrs. Fred J. Wehren, left, Mrs. James A. Swift with Carroll Willoughby at the kick-off fashion show Sept. 22." The article partially reads, "'Although our membership has now grown to 500, we feel the representation is still small considering there are approximately 800,000 residents in the Valley.' says Mrs. Ben F. Wilson of Northridge, president of Cadenzas, the women's division of the Association....the area is broken up into so many small communities....'There is a lack of community pride in the Valley that you would not find in a city. A great many people who live here work over the hill and think of the Valley only as their bedroom.'"
