Volunteer Experiences

“Being a “Pasadena Native,” I love this city! I am inspired by Pasadena’s enriched offerings, but my favorite event is Pasadena Heritage’s Craftsman Weekend! The need to give back and volunteer, for this event, is my way of giving back to the historic beauty of these magnificent architectural treasures! I am honored, year after year to participate in this spectacular event!!!”

-Lynne Levin-Guzman, Pasadena Heritage Volunteer ( 9 years)
