Pomona Heritage July Newsletter

We hope this finds you well and that you are enjoying your July. Please stay cool! 
Past Events 
Our visit to the Currier House and Phillips Mansion was exciting and we enjoyed hearing about the plans for renovations.  
Our July started with the Lassie House Dedication Ceremony. It was a wonderful day, and the home is a fantastic example of restoration in Pomona. Thanks to all Pomona Heritage members who volunteered as docents. If you missed it but want to see some press coverage...the Daily Bulletin reported on the house. Click on Lassie House Article
