Here are some highlights from our September, 2000 show held at the Masonic temple in Arcadia.
Michael Patris from the Mount Lowe Preservation Society came to our show and shared some of the interesting history of the most special Mount Lowe Ye Alpine Tavern and resort. To the left is an original advertisement from Mr. Lowe and to the right Michael is seated second from the left next to Tony Gray. Also in the photo is Shawn McAlister and Ken Loakes. If you would like to learn more about the Mount Lowe Preservation Society call 626-570-0560. They are always seeking items of interest related to the Mt. Lowe Tavern and Resort.
