Savannah Cemetery Fundraiser


Historic Savannah Cemetery is having what might be called a rolling fundraiser on Tuesday, April 20, 2010. From 11am to 9pm, eat at Pinos Place Italian Restaurant in Temple City (4988 Santa Anita Ave, just north of Hondo Pkwy. Hondo Pkwy is north of Lower Azusa Road). Present the certificate you can find here, and Pinos will donate 20% of your total bill to the El Monte Cemetery Association.

Alternatively, you can just go to and make a donation directly.

Despite the real historic value of this institution, neither the city of Rosemead nor the city of El Monte are doing anything to help preserve this unique heritage spot. That's a real shame, but hardly surprising when you consider the priorities of so many elected officials.
