125-bdayAltadena Heritage throws huge
party for Altadena’s 125th birthday!

On Nov. 3, 2012, Altadena Heritage led the way in throwing the biggest party Altadena has ever seen — our 125th birthday! Altadena Historical Society, Supervisor Michael Antonovich’s office, the County Department of Parks and Recreation, 60 sponsoring businesses and community organizations, and more than 60 volunteers all pitched in to help. Heritage Board member Michele Zack headed the committee that produced an affair to remember. Historical displays, an art show, fabulous food (most of it donated by local restaurants and bakeries and some homemade), music by The Bohemians, and dancing combined to attract more than 700 people. Our big birthday was commemorated in a beautiful booklet designed by Hugo Arteaga, Heritage Board member, with cover art donated by Altadena artist and long-time Heritage member Lynne McDaniel. Commemorative booklets may be obtained from Altadena Heritage or Historical Society while supplies last. Contact altadenaheritage@earthlink.net for more information.
