BIRD RESCUE TOUR 2017

The Windsor Square-Hancock Park  Historical Society

has arranged a private talk and tour of the International Bird Rescue Facility in San Pedro. This is an organization that helped to save the oiled birds from the Exxon Valdez spill, the explosion of Deepwater Horizon as well as many other disasters. They have rehabilitated many birds that have needed desperate help. You will hear about all this on our special day.

Saturday, October 14, 2017 @ 10:30 in the morning

3601 S. Gaffey Street – San Pedro, CA 90731

 

Free parking at the site – there is a long drive down the driveway

 

The WS/HPHS will be making a donation to the Facility. They do not need any Dawn soap but could use your old towels, pillow cases and sheets for bedding. No holes in them please – so the birds will not get their feet stuck.

If you wish to wander over to the Marine Mammal Rescue site next door – please do. They have baskets on the outside of the enclosures for donations. This is where you will see rescued seals and sea lions.

We will provide suggestions for places to have lunch at the site.

For questions send an e-mail to juanitakempe@gmail.com

Saint Sophia tour and Lunch 2017

The Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society
Has arranged a special tour

Why travel to Europe when you can see a Greek Orthodox Cathedral right in LA – Saint Sophia

Meet at the Cathedral 1324 S. Normandie Avenue, Los Angeles, 90006

The cathedral is patterned after Saint Sophia of Constantinople. The architecture reflects the influences of both the Hellenistic and Byzantine periods.

Friday, February 24, 2017 10:30 am.

When Charles P. Skouras and his brothers, Spyros & George, were still trying to get ahead in Hollywood Charles made a vow that he would build the most majestic cathedral if God would grant him success in show business. He became head of Fox West Coast.

If you wish to join a group of us for a no host lunch after the tour, we will meet at Papa Cristos 2771 West Pico – across the street from the Cathedral – free parking at both places.

Tickets $15 per member – non-members $20. Checks must be received by February 17th
