On Sunday afternoon, May 22, Pasadena Heritage celebrated the historic Edmund Blinn House as their new home, with some of Pasadena’s civic leaders, in the Playhouse Village – the heart of Pasadena!

Nobody could be happier than Susan Mossman, long-time, hard-working executive director of Pasadena Heritage. She was joined by about 200 celebrants who also care about preserving and protecting the historic, architectural, and cultural resources of Pasadena – the mission of Pasadena Heritage.
The attendees were led by Mayor Victor Gordo, and included Councilmembers John J Kennedy, Andy Wilson, Felicia Williams, and former Councilwoman Margaret McAustin.
Some other history and heritage minded attendees included former Mayor Bill Bogaard and his wife Claire Bogaard, a founder of Pasadena Heritage, historian/author Ann Scheid, Mic Hansen, Marsha Victoria Rood, Lena Kennedy, Brian Baker, Tim Gregory, William Ellinger, Tom Seifert and his wife Diane Philobosian, newspaperman Larry Wilson, city manager Cynthia Kurtz, and representing the wonderful Pasadena Community Foundation: Jennifer DeVoll CEO and Jeannine Bogaard.
Along with listening to speeches, the attendees listened to live music from Art Deco Entertainment. Kensington Caterers kept the attendees fed with hors d’ouevres and wine and beer to satisfy their thirst.
