Claremont Insider: Freudian Slip

Freudian Slip

Last Friday's number of the City Manager's Update contained a Freudian slip that might amuse at least one reader. On page 4, City Manager Jeff Parker informs the community that Claremont volunteer Gladys Parker received a County award for running the desk at the Joslyn Center. Our thanks to Ms. Parker for her good work.

However, Parker takes just a bit away from the honor by telling us that "Award recipients...were treated to a festive awards presentation at the Dorothy Chandelier Pavilion." [our emphasis]

We've been to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Los Angeles Music Center, and we suspect that Parker was thinking of the lighting fixtures in the three-story foyer when he penned that sentence.
