Suzie Harrison Most people would think of leisure and relaxation if they thought of taking a trip to breathtaking Fiji. The 300 islands, pristine white beaches, blue lagoons, reefs decorated with colorful fish, as well as rich forests and mountains across 200,000 square miles of ocean conjure a vision of a vacation dream come true. But for a group of Laguna locals and Southern Californians the gorgeous view was just a backdrop to their task.

I wanted to write you all this week to follow up with more detail, and also to inform those of you who were not able to attend about some important news. Most of you are aware that Margy and I are from the Midwest, and that our families still live in the Chicago and northern Indiana areas.

There goes a part of history,” exclaimed Laguna Presbyterian’s Worship Leader, Beth Pinney, as the enormous wooden ladder that led to the top of the tower constructed in 1927, was lowered by crane.  The historic church, located in the heart of Laguna Beach, is undergoing major reconstruction for earthquake safety, waterproofing, handicap accessibility, re-roofing, and interior restoration to its authentic  Spanish Colonial Style architecture.  A new similar bell tower covered in plaster, and an interior ladder, are made of steel.

Torrey AndersonSchoepe There is both art and spirit in the newly renovated St. Catherine of Siena Church. "Our new chapel complements our parish and our community through its use of symbolism and artwork created by local artists," said Father Eamon O'Gorman, the parish's pastor. The church was rededicated after a two-year renovation process Friday and will reopen for services at the end of the month. The changes and additions to art in the church are apparent both inside and out. Murals hand-painted on canvas and dating from 1947 were cleaned and restored by the Balboa Art Conservancy of San Diego.

Barbara Diamond Ten days in Costa Rica sounds like a dream vacation. But not for a team of volunteers from Laguna Beach United Methodist Church. They went to build a church for people who couldn't afford to do it for themselves. "We had only 1 1/2 days off," said Ann Quilter, team leader. "And it was a joy, a pure joy to be in service. This was not about us, nothing about us." The church sponsored four volunteer work teams this summer. Besides the construction crew to Costa Rica, a group of young church members spent eight days repairing houses on an Indian reservation in Northern California, a youth group went to San Diego's inner city to feed and comfort the needy, and a fourth team traveled to Fiji to build homes and a church.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but that wouldn't have been nearly as much fun for the audience at the Laguna Beach Historical Society slide show on Monday. The audience was invited by narrators Gene Felder and Eric Jessen to comment on the slides culled from the society's archives, which included photographs of unidentified people and areas of Laguna. Donations to the collection are sought. "Our board is concerned that photographs will be lost," Felder said.
