Well, imagine this without all the furniture and the groovy firepit. It's a great building on a pretty nice mod campus. (It's no Cerritos College)

Would there be any interest in organizing a trip?
Rio Hondo, Rose Hills, Oceanic Arts, Jack's Salad Bowl, Friendly Hills Bowl... Could be a nice Whittier Sunday or somethin'

I'm volunteering to organize it.

I'm up for the trip.

Have you ever driven 6th Street all the way to Whittier? It's a great drive.

We visited, we organized, we campaigned with the school and we still lost it.

Putnam Center Demolished

Demolition of the Putnam Center was completed in the month of Novemever, Wrecking crews made quick work of the familiar radial structure, which was quickly reduced to a pile of rubble. The building was demolished in order to make way for the new Learning Resource Center.
