will-rogersOn Saturday, August 13 we will gather at historic Will Rogers State Park for a guided tour of the Will Rogers home, barn and grounds. Tours are on a first come, first served basis so plan to arrive early to ensure you get a ticket! We plan to meet in front of the house at 9:30 AM, and the first tour starts at 10:00 AM. The tour is free, and parking is $11 for seniors, $12 for the Simmons.  Watch for a flyer in the mail with full details.

July Event Recap: The “unintentionally triennial” hot dog party at the Einhorn residence was a huge success as usual. 38 members and guests with five TCs took part, beginning at the Crandall home in Malibu for a nice brunch. After a 90-minute tour of Mulholland Highway the group was treated to gourmet Chicago hot dogs, side dishes and dessert by the Einhorns. Huge applause and thanks to those who made the event happen – the Einhorns for the main event, Crandalls for our lovely brunch start, and Simmons who planned and led our driving tour.
