Birthday Party 2004

It was a Happy, Happy Birthday!! Red blue, yellow, green, orange, pink, and purple balloons were tied to the trees, tables, and posts surrounding the picnic and bandstand area at Torrance Park on Sunday afternoon, July 18th. “Happy Birthday” banners waving with the breeze, welcomed everyone to Save Historic Old Torrance’s first birthday party. Drifting through the warm summer air were the melodious tones provided by the band, The Free Agents. Amid all this, were games for the kids (with prizes), cake and punch, and a fun raffle, as well as neighbors, Torrance City Council Members and even Assemblyman, George Nakano. Torrance Bakery provided the beautiful and delicious cakes: one chocolate and one white for the occasion. Everyone had a great time eating, visiting and swaying to the music. And of course, it culminated with the drawing of the winning raffle tickets. Raffle prizes were donated by many, many local businesses and neighbors. Some of the highlights were the autographed copy of Louis Zamperini’s book, Devil at My Heels, two tickets to an Angel’s game, one year free checking account with the checks from Wells Fargo, the Wells Fargo ponies, dinner at Pei Wei’s, Collector’s Edition Barbie (s), a three year paid subscription to American Bungalow Magazine and so much more! What a day! Thank you to everyone helped make the party a success. And thank you for being a part of the organization that is raising public awareness of the treasures in our own Torrance and the need to preserve those treasures .Together, let’s see what we can do before we turn two.
