            AND THEY'RE OFF...


    We're going to the horses and you're invited! Join WCAPT for a full day event at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and the Santa Anita Racetrack:

    Saturday, September 17th 2022

    9.30am to 7pm

    Follow in the footsteps of Hugo Reid and Lucky Baldwin as we explore the Queen Anne Cottage, the Reid-Baldwin Adobe, the Santa Anita Train Depot and the Coach Barn at the Arboretum.

    Tours will be lead by an all-star cast of local preservation professionals, followed by presentations in the on-site conference room, then a lunch under the trees with the peacocks!

    Speakers, tour guides and other contributor's will include:

    Mitchell Bishop - LA County Arboretum

    Kelly Sutherlin McLeod, AIA - Kelly Sutherlin McLeod Architecture

    Peyton Hall, FAIA - Historic Resources Group

    Sandy Snider - Historian

    Bill Ellinger - Ellinger Architects & Associates

    After lunch, we take a short jaunt across Baldwin Avenue to the Santa Anita Racetrack, where more local preservation superstars will guide us through the history of the park as we amble through the paddocks and around the art deco grandstand.

    A short business meeting will take place in the Baldwin Conference room with a celebration of newly elected and outgoing board members.

    The day will conclude with a twilight reception at Clocker's Corner where we can take a seat in the grandstand, admire views of the San Gabriel mountains and unwind with a glass of wine and a bite to eat.
