The presentation will feature the life of General Patton and will focus on his early days growing up in the San Gabriel Valley, his subsequent rise through the military ranks, and his ultimate achievement of becoming one of the greatest heroes of World War II. General Patton is widely known as one of the greatest personalities the United States has ever seen – a person whose legacy still remains strong throughout Southern California and the US.
The evening’s presenter will be Joe Castillo, Alhambra Historical Society Board Trustee and Treasurer, author of five historical books, and historical columnist for the San Gabriel Valley Examiner. General Patton has been the subject of many of Mr. Castillo’s written pieces.
Parking will be available at the Alhambra Masonic Center and on surrounding city streets. The event is free to the general public, light refreshments will be served, and all are welcome.
