Goodbye to Summer.


Lets say “Goodbye to summer and Welcome Fall””.  As I sit here barefoot, wearing shorts and listening to the hum of the Air conditioner which seems to have been going constantly  for a long, long time, the calendar says that    Saturday, September 22, 2012  is  the official first day of Fall.    Sure hope that cool, refreshing weather is wilh us soon.

The El Monte Historical Society will hold their quarterly Tea and Meeting on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the El Monte Historical Society Museum, 3150 Tyler Avenue, El Monte, California.   The Tea will be served from 1:00 pm to 2:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 2:00 p.m.   The Program Speaker will be Nancy Kennon, an active member of the El Monte Moose Lodge for over 55 years who is very involved in the community and a former El Monte Senior Citizen of the Year.   Ms. Kennon will give an informative presentation of the Loyal Order of the El Monte Moose Lodge #1321: it’s history, mission, objectives, structure, activities, membership and more.    There is no charge for the program and guests are always welcome.
