In honor of Altadena's Business of the Year (which will be recognized at the Chamber of Commerce dinner Friday), Gloriana Casey has composed something for the occasion. Her ode to the Citizen of the Year will be tomorrow.
"ALTADENA HARDWARE--Business of the Year"
from gloriana casey
The ALTADENA HARDWARE STORE
in Altadena town
is found on Mariposa Street;
For Mariposa, in Spanish,
it means the butterfly.
And like that "Butterfly Effect,"
will bring change by and by!
They're Business of the year, this year
two thousand and thirteen!
A Vision of what business does
to build the city's Dream!
For small business---the very best
it bonds with help and care.
Supporting good works, causes too
when help is needed there!
Now Jimmy Orlandini is
that manager with flair,
and plus there's lots of family help
you'll find a- working there!
Besides Jimmy, there's Uncle Pete,
and cousin David too.
Plus Irving there and Ismael
will gladly wait on you!
But best of all, since I'm a klutz,
who loves to fix things up.
They gladly answer my questions
and find me the right stuff!
Why just today I bought some nails
for tiny fence repair.
For galvanized, the nails should be
with zinc protecting there.
And paint I've bought and lots of keys
to help this local biz.
