Mayor Michael Davitt and state Sen. Anthony Portantino were among 85 supporters at the recent La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association’s August Happy Hour.

The La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association’s August Happy Hour recently was hosted by Sherry and David Kirchheimer at their beautiful home on Flintridge Avenue.
More than 85 float supporters and enthusiasts enjoyed riding the miniature Flintheim Railroad, built by the Kirchheimers. The evening had a magical feeling created by the Disney-like environment of the frontier railway. The grounds of the home were freshly manicured with beautiful green lawns and flowers in abundance — just like being at Disneyland. Guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres when not riding the railway through the Kirchheimers’ backyard.

LCFTRA would like to thank all of its supporters, especially the Kirchheimers, who graciously shared their home and railroad for all to enjoy. The next happy hour will be Friday, Sept. 22, at the LCF home of Nancy and John Wolhaupter. Anyone older than 21 is welcome to attend. Just bring an appetizer to share and enjoy a fun, casual evening with friends in support of the 2018 Rose Parade Float, “Panda — Monium.”
