Take a walk through church's labyrinth

The Neighborhood Congregational Church is inviting the public to walk its labyrinth from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday in Bridge Hall.

The church periodically opens the labyrinth throughout the year, and people of all faiths are welcome to enjoy it.

"The most important gift of the labyrinth can be the experience of the open heart; the walk to the center symbolizing a pilgrimage to the heart's core," labyrinth coordinator Karen Gaither said in a statement.

Sunday's event will have walkers focus on "The Path of the Heart," Gaither said, in honor of St. Valentine and upcoming Valentine's Day.

Neighborhood Congregational Church is at 340 St. Ann's Drive. For more information, call (949) 494-8061 or visit


Fegraus will receive 2012 Legacy Award

The Laguna Beach Seniors announced this week that its 2012 Legacy Award will go to Mary Fegraus.

Fegraus is involved in many different aspects of the community: She is a founding member of the Laguna Canyon Foundation and Laguna Beach Community Foundation; a trustee for the Laguna Beach High School Scholarship Foundation; a director for Laguna Greenbelt; and a former planning commissioner, according to a news release.


"Mary prefers to talk about the many people who are still standing shoulder to shoulder to protect Laguna's natural beauty and promote our sense of community," Laguna Beach Seniors board president Chris Quilter said in a statement. "But the extent of her activism and vision is exceptional — and she's done it all with a gentle touch."

The Legacy Award honors those who have made considerable commitment and contribution to the well-being of Laguna Beach. Previous honorees include former City Manager Ken Frank and Councilwoman Elizabeth Pearson.

The award will be given out at the sixth annual Legacy Ball on March 9 at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach.
