Now a Look Back at the Gala Under the Stars
For those who might not know, and those who have forgotten, the first Gala Under the Stars was held in June of 2005. It was the brainchild of the Heritage Park committee, of Leona Valley Sertoma, as a fundraiser to complete the Leona Heritage Park Museum and to restore the local one-room schoolhouse. This was to support the work of the West Antelope Valley Historical Society, which owned the schoolhouse and had saved it with the move to the, at the time, newly named Heritage Park. In addition, many historical Leona Valley artifacts that had been saved over the years needed a place where they could be displayed and shared with others.
Of course, it would take more than money alone to make the Heritage park vision a reality and the members of the Heritage Park committee deserve a lot of credit for bringing together the people and the resources to make it happen. The good people of Leona Valley volunteered and stepped up and took on the challenge of making the Heritage Park Museum and the finished schoolhouse a reality and something that today can be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in history, especially the history of this little corner of Los Angeles County.
This all came about thanks to the efforts of Leona Valley Sertoma, the LVIA, the Leona Valley Town Council, and the West Antelope Valley Historical Society. You can learn more about the West Antelope Valley Historical Society by visiting their website at: avhistorical.org
