A memorable musical show of appreciation to our local veterans in South Pasadena and to all of America’s veterans will be the featured entertainment at the November 1 Woman’s Club luncheon meeting at the clubhouse, 1424 Fremont Ave. The public is invited.
Pianist, Dennis Aguilar will present a star spangled salute of patriotic songs in this not-to-be-missed program that is sure to enhance your anticipation of Veteran’s Day in November. Notably, several local veterans will be the special guests in attendance at this event. They are WWII veterans John Genovese, 93, of the U.S. Naval Air Force, Al Gonzales, 94, of the U.S. Air Force, and Marshall St. John, 90, of the U.S. Marines. Woman’s Club member Joan Moffett, 93, a WWII army nurse, will also join this very special tribute.
Valerie Gast, Program Chair for the Woman’s Club, said, “We are delighted to have this timely program just before our country observes Veterans Day. These veterans are truly part of America’s ‘Greatest Generation,’ and patriotic music is an inspiration to all Americans. We are also thrilled that Dennis Aguilar will be performing.”

He has entertained audiences at a variety of venues, including Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. He has also been a featured pianist at the Bonaventure and Biltmore Hotels in Los Angeles.
