The members of the Highlands Garden Club were entertained by a power point program presented by Claudia and Alan Heller recently, vicariously traveling from their meeting at The Only Place in Town in Sierra Madre to travel on Route 66 from Santa Monica to Chicago.
The program was a visual trek along the Mother Road sharing the Hellers’ experiences as they traveled America’s Highway while writing a Route 66 series for the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group. The show, more than just a guide, contains stories of those who traveled the Road in its heyday, and suggestions on how to do the trip for anyone who may someday make the journey.
In the past, Club members performed hands-on work at the Arboretum. Their current projects include the continued support of the Arcadia White Christmas Program, but mainly the Club exists to maintain friendships and enjoy monthly programs and luncheons.
