Neighborhood Mixer

We LOVE our neighborhood. It's a sweet little pocket in the center of Los Angeles called Wilshire Vista, part of Mid-City L.A. Everyone is friendly. We all look out for each other. We have pride in our neighborhood. Our WV sign says that we're a "Community of Respect." This is true.
Probably the most unique feature of the neighborhood are the buildings, the majority of which were built between the 1920's through the mid-1930's. Styles range from Spanish, Spanish Mission, and Mediterranean to English Tudor and storybook European. There are some very cool modernist buildings from the 1950's and 1960's too.

We have snacks!

Every spring our neighborhood, Wilshire Vista holds it's Neighborhood Mixer.  Many members of the community help coordinate, set-up, serve, decorate, clean-up and more. Restaurants in the area cater our event. Larry takes photos every year and there is a display of past year's get-togethers.

It was particularly HOT yesterday, so I wasn't sure that people would attend, but we had a very nice turn-out! There were prizes for the people who had lived in the neighborhood the longest (1960) and another prize for the newest neighbors who moved here the day before!

Everyone is friendly. We meet the most amazing neighbors at the Mixer!
