WAHA’s Busy Year Ahead

Well, here we are, at the beginning of a new year, and –– Oh, Boy –– does WAHA have a lot of events already planned! Please take a look at WAHA’s Preservation Calendar on page 19 (you could even cut it out and put in on your bulletin board or refrigerator), which includes many important dates already slated for fun events, historic tours and preservation activities.

Here are some of the highlights: In February, WAHA Steps Out to twice: On Monday (all day), February 3, we hope you will invite family and friends to dine with you (or take out food orders) at the Original El Cholo Cafe on Western Avenue, in a fundraiser for WAHA (see page 6.) And on Saturday, February 15, join us touring the annual Academy Award costumes exhibition at the FIDM Museum in Downtown (page 7). Then on Saturday, March 1, we will Let the Good Times Roll, N’Awlins-style, with a Mardi Gras potluck (page 7). Two weeks later, WAHA is gathering the West Adams-area HPOZ board members and “friends” for a mini-conference session (Saturday, March 15, details in the March newsletter). On Saturday, March 22, we’re invited to a Secret City Tours event, dining out in West Adams and South Los Angeles (page 6).

Tired yet? There’s more! On Sunday, April 6, mark your calendar for WAHA’s Annual Membership Meeting and Board Elections (page 3). At month’s end, Sunday, April 27, please plan to attend L.A. Heritage Day (details in the next newsletter). We also have the Preservation Brunch (Sunday, May 18), a Memorial Day Weekend remembrance at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery (Sunday, May 25), the annual Spring tour (Saturday, June 7), and the Living History Tour at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery (Saturday, September 27) all mapped out. These and more.... All we need is YOU! Please do take note of the dates, and we’ll see you there.
