Column: Howdy, Pilgrim! Church turns 125

Sunday’s column (read it here) begins with news about Pilgrim Congregational Church’s 125th anniversary, its 1887 start preceding almost everything else in Pomona, even the city’s incorporation. I also present a few cultural items, comments about ONT and a sampling of recent tweets from my Twitter page.

    I have been inside just once to attend a wedding many years ago. It is as beautiful inside as it is outside. I loved passing the church when I lived in Pomona. I’ve always wanted to have a picnic on the lawn. So peaceful there.

    Since we’re waxing historical – a nice change from hysterical – I’ll tell you that the original Pomona High School burned down 56 years ago today. I had to use a calculator to be sure I have the numbers right. I was a junior in 1956. If you’re so inclined you can use YOUR calculator to figure out my age.

    One of these fine days I will be saluted as the lone survivor just as they do for WWII vets.
