Enhanced by a waterfall and grotto, the swimming pool behind the La Cañada home of Wendy and Phil Wyatt provided a stunning background when they hosted the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association’s Happy Hour on July 26. Regular parade supporters and many guests enjoyed the surroundings and tables of hors d’oeuvres in the backyard setting. Several folks had their pictures taken beside the color rendering of Dog Gone, the parade float being built that embraces the 2014 Rose Parade theme “Dreams Come True.”
The gathering of parade supporters included hosts Wendy and Phil Wyatt, Pat and Otis Hutchins, Donna Franklin, David Granish and Julia Cameron, Vera and Garth Gragg, Dave, Andy and Steve Spence, Stewart and Gloria Lee, Martha and Tom Burns, Gloria and Terry Beyer, Pete and Cathy Palermo, Laverne Hench, Bob and Joyce Covey, Rose Linda Gonzales, Steve and Heather Park, Nancy Wyman, David Hildreth and Adrine Issavy, Mary and Daryal Gant, Sue Beatty, Page Whyte, Cindi McIntosh-Behr, Joey Mitchell, Jim and Adene Misamore, Sarah and Mayfield Marshall, Larry and Alicia McVicker, and Dick Grippi.
Other members and supporters included Bud and Pamela Carney, Bob, Liz, and Caroline Craven, Duane and May Batenhorst, Brenda Gant and Jeff Hughes, Kaitzer and Joe Puglia, Jeanne and Jim Wallace, Don and Rose Manning, Tim Rahtz, Bill Pounders, Jenny Pass, Peggy Hotaling, Lisa and Jon Curtis, Eileen St. Amand, Gloria Winkley, Joyce Ruygrok, Pam Wiedenbeck, Alex Keledjian, Doug Albright, Kitty Barr, Joel and Darleen Peterson, Mary Lou and Erik Fiske, Tom and Gale Caswell, Clyde and Bobbie Hemphill, Diane and John Landrum, Mary Brown, and Kieran McKay.
