Congressman Adam Schiff has named La Cañada Flintridge resident Barbara Weber as one of the “2020 Women of the Year,” an annual tradition to recognize inspiring women throughout local communities in the 28th Congressional District during Women’s History Month in March.
Weber was one of 15 women honored for her extensive volunteer work in the community, including serving on the boards of several La Cañada Flintridge Parent-Teacher Associations, as well as a classroom volunteer at Paradise Canyon Elementary School. She also has actively volunteered at Huntington Hospital, the Assistance League of Flintridge, and Caltech Women’s Club.
Typically, the women are honored with a celebratory luncheon, but due to the coronavirus pandemic this year, Schiff gave an online Facebook speech to sing their praises.
“Every year in March, in honor of Women’s History Month, my office hosts an event to honor our district’s Women of the Year,” Schiff said. “Unfortunately, we had to postpone our celebration due to coronavirus, but I wanted to make sure these outstanding women get the recognition they deserve. They are all pillars of our communities and I thank them for their invaluable service.”
