One couldn't have asked for a more beautiful night for a party. It was a starry night and a nearly full moon was reflected in the backyard swimming pool as guests gathered on the patio of the mountain top home of Becky and Chuck Gelhaar for the recent La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. Happy Hour event.
More than 80 people noshed on the huge spread of hors d'ouvres brought by guests and sipped beverages poured by bartenders for the evening Bob Wallace and Tony Riewe.
Besides exchanging news about who was going where for their summer vacation the main topic was how the progress of our city's float, "3-2-1 DIG!" The community got a peek at the float's classy chassis during its debut at the Memorial Day Parade. The chassis was driven by a truly classy lady — Arlene Buchmann, who is this year's official float driver. Though she won't be seen, she will be guiding our float down Pasadena's Colorado Boulevard on New Year's Day. Arlene, who lives in Orange County, is very thrilled to be this year's driver. In spite of the long drive to get to our fair city, Arlene loves working on our float.
