WAHA Holiday Party, Sun, Dec 9, 3-6 p.m.

Season's Greetings!


Sunday, December 9
3 to 6 p.m.
The Historic Benjamin H. Hiss Residence, 215 S. Manhattan Place (in St. Andrews Square)
RSVP requested

WAHA is hosting our annual Holiday bash for members and volunteers at the historic Benjamin H. Hiss Residence, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument No. 792. This expansive and eclectic home has a Mediterranean exterior, and an elegant "ultimate" Craftsman interior, with lavish, woodwork and a not-to-be-missed paneled dining room with great built-ins. The residence is owned by Rory Cunningham and David Pacheco, and was built in 1915 for B. A. Hiss, who had at one time served as the Mayor in Hermosa Beach (where the Hiss family owned extensive property.)

We are planning a swell party for the WAHA family! There will be a great spread and lots of good cheer! As always, we could use some helping hands. If you'd like to volunteer, please contact tours@westadamsheritage.org.

We also would appreciate your timely RSVP, so that we can plan a large enough repast. Please e-mail WAHAholiday@aol.com.

(Please note: parking is limited, but we are arranging some offstreet parking. Once you RSVP, we will provide you information about where to park. St. Andrews Square is located between Wilton and Western, Beverly and 3rd, east of Larchmont Village/Windsor Square.)

December 17 to January 4, 2008

We welcome your contributions to the WAHA E-News and West Adams Heritage Association's monthly publication, "West Adams Matters." Please understand that we do have deadlines. Material for the print newsletter should be submitted no later than the 1st of the prior month (i.e.: April 1 for the May issue). If your event is scheduled for early in a month, we suggest you request coverage for the prior month (i.e.: May issue for a June 3 event), because it's entirely possible that not all of our members will have received their newsletter by then (we do try hard.) We reserve the right to edit submitted material. For the WAHA E-News, we prefer to only send it out once or twice a month. Please don't wait until two days before an event to let us know about it. It may not be sent out.

EXCEPTION: If you suddenly hear of an important city hearing or other public
meeting that is important to West Adams, we will endeavor to send out a special bulletin.

Submit your material to Laura Meyers, editor, lauramink@aol.com.
