Barrington native son Frank Willmarth, who studied at Chouinard Art School in Los Angeles, known as “Pancho,” sketched tourists at Catalina Island. He estimated that he had drawn pictures of about 50,000 people through his lifetime. We invite you to peruse a sampling of his work.
A very warm thank you for all the presenters that attended our annual meeting event on Saturday June 16th! It was very informative and brought so many people - young and old - together to learn and commemorate the men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!
Though it's located in the heart of downtown, this condo feels a world apart from the bustle of the city. With three bedrooms, it's great for a family.
