First we'll tour their archives, then retire to the community center for a talk on Altadena's history, specifically relating to our shared San Gabriel Mountains. The talk will be - "Five Men and the Mountains" - about the five fascinating men who explored, mapped, promoted and conserved the San Gabriel Mountains: George Wharton James, Theodore Lukens (for whom our mountain was named), Will Thrall, Don McClain, and L.T. Gotchy.
Altadena Community Center, 730 E. Altadena Drive, Altadena. The community center is just west of the sheriff's station and across from Rite-Aid. The community center has its own parking lot.

AHEAD with Horses was established in 1968 by Liz Helms in La Tuna Canyon. The organization is a non-profit developmental therapeutic riding program for children with disabilities. They have been using vaulting (gymnastics on a moving horse) for over 50 years to improve the lives of the children they work with. They serve more than 200 kids per week, more than 100,000 handicapped people since its beginning.
