PLAN ON EXPLORING THE VALLEY WHEN YOU COME TO THE BIG 5Oth REUNION OF THE CLASS OF 1957
Academy of Television Arts and Sciences
NoHo Arts District - Lankershim Boulevard
When you visit the San Fernando Valley during the great Reunion of the Notre Dame High School Class of 1957, plan to explore the place where you grew up. Somethings are very much the same, but others are very different. 1,800,000 people now live in the greater Valley. There are vast populations of Russians, Armenians and folks from India. Many Catholic priests here are from Vietnam or Central America. There are 72 different languages spoken by Los Angeles school children.
A really interesting and fun experience is to ride the new subway system. You can catch the Red Line at Lankershim Station, where the Television Academy resides, or from Campo de Caheunga where Lankershim meets Ventura Boulevard. (and, you qualify for senior citizen discounts!)
Don't forget to get your biographies and photographs in. There are only a couple of weeks left in Jerry's energy bank.
The Mexican hurricane brought temperatures of over a 110 degrees for most of last week. Tony Fadale promises that the weather will be much nicer for you during the great Reunion.
