AltaDitty Hit The Right Note With AH Members

AltaDitty was held at Camp Honeypot in the lovely and eccentric garden belonging to AH members Michelle Huneven and Jim Potter. The event was free and open to AH members only, many of whom brought delicacies to share and participated enthusiastically in the singalongs.


Limited seating is still available for AltaDitty, an evening of Altadena-related songs and poems performed by residents and fans … including you, if you’d like! This Altadena Heritage event will be curated and emceed by Altadena’s own Bill Burnett, singer/songwriter extraordinaire, who’s already assembled a stellar line-up of pros and amateurs to help us celebrate our community, and is looking to add more.
