In 1965, the Council awarded the first Community Action Awards to organizations and individuals who had provided outstanding service to our community. In 1969, the Awards were renamed the Les Tupper Community Service Awards, in honor of Mr. Leslie (Les) C. Tupper, a La Cañada Flintridge resident and well-known Los Angeles attorney. "Mr. La Cañada" was an active member of the school board and later served as its chairman. He was also president of the Council before La Cañada Flintridge became a city and at a time when the Council was the only body that served as a link between the various local organizations.
