On December 3, 2011, the Dinsmoor Heritage House and friends celebrated the Holidays with their Annual Holiday Christmas Celebration and Open House. The historic Dinsmoor is located at 9632 Steele Street, on the corner of Temple City Blvd and Steele in “the mead”. The house was built in 1927 and is now one of the oldest houses in Rosemead.
The Dinsmoor had been beautifully decorated for the Holidays inside and out. Inside a beautiful tree, garland tied with bows strung through the banisters, holiday decorations placed all through the house, and the dining room table was filled with Christmas goodies, fudge and cakes, cookies and candies, all prepared by members of the society for their guests. Outside, the grounds had been neatly groomed and the house looked great with the all the new cosmetic repairs.
The whole community was invited for a wonderful afternoon of music, holiday goodies and gift raffles. Visitors were all so amazed at the huge historical house. Many of them had never seen the house or even been inside, even the neighbors who have lived near the house for many years. Tours were conducted once an hour, and attendees got to see parts of the house, some people have never seen.
We also were very lucky to have Coach Chuck Lyons and the Rosemead High School Girls Basketball Team, who volunteered to help with the event. The girls were very in awe of the house. Most of them took the tour several times. They were told stories of what it was like when the Dinsmoor family lived in the house and how much different it was then.
It was a great day!

Everyone agreed, “It was a blast from the past” on June 30th, when the Rosemead Chamber of Commerce presented their 84th Annual Installation and Awards Dinner.
By Cathy Brehm
The Annual Installation and Awards Banquet happens once a year and is the night that the Chamber installs their new upcoming group of Board of Directors, presents to one deserving individual, the Herb Hunter Business Person of the Year Award, honors the Chamber’s “Business of the Year”, and presents to one of their members the “Ambassador of the Year Award”.
This year’s Title Sponsor for the event was Athens Services, represented by Ed Chen. Table Sponsors included: Brown’s Jewelry & Loan, CH Auto, City of Rosemead, Consolidated Disposal, El Monte Rosemead Adult School, Holiday Inn Express, Panda Restaurant Group, Pacific Alliance Bank, Pacific Western Bank, Southern California Edison, Southwest Management, Wal-Mart, and Willdan.
The dinner was held at the beautiful Doubletree by Hilton where it has been held for over 10 years now. It was a 60’s theme, jeans, tie die, peace signs, and wild hair styles. It was the 60’s, the decade of the Vietnam War,Woodstock, Hippies, with sayings like “Make love not war” and “Give peace a chance”. And the guests were encouraged to dress the part. The banquet room was decorated with memories from the decade, multi colored beads hanging in the doorways, tie-dyed scarves centered on the table tops with cute wine flower vases filled with sunflowers, multi-colored napkins and 60’s music playing in the background. And the stage was decorated with a big yellow bus and lots of colored psychedelic images in the background.
The evening started off with President Erix Oliva,El MonteRosemeadAdultSchool, conducting a couple trivia quizzes for the guests. It’s amazing what you can remember from 40 years ago and game winners received free drink tickets. Our guest of honor for the evening was Congresswoman Judy Chu, 32nd District, who then installed our new Executive Board of Directors.
The rest of the evening went off fabulously, everyone was in such a free spirited mood, cameras were snapping and guests were laughing. The food was great, there were lots of prizes, awards, games and even a silent auction going on. Many thanks to our Door Prize Sponsors: Little People School, JRC Wrought Iron, Charlie Brown’s Restaurant, Holiday Inn Express, Doubletree by Hilton, DiPilla’s Italian Restaurant, Brown’s Jewelry & Loan and El Patio Bar & Grill. And thanks to Richard Fierro and Consolidated Disposal who donated the silent auction items: Dodger tickets, that were won by Amy Enoto-Perez, Superintendent/Rosemead School District, and two sets on Lakers tickets, who were won Leticia Martinez, Consolidated Disposal, and Amy Wu, Holiday Inn Express.
We were also lucky enough to have as guests, some past Board Presidents of previous years at the Chamber. Uma Chander, 1995-1996, Ernie Ayala, 2001-2003, and Joan Hunter, 1985-1986 and 2003-2005.
Later that evening, the 29th Annual Herb Hunter Business Person of the Year was awarded to James Wang, CH Auto and the Business of the Year was awarded to UFC Gym, Ryan Junk accepting for UFC, and the Ambassador of the Year award to Jean Hall. All awardees were well deserving and quite appreciative of their awards.
