LA's virtual Swiss neighborhood!

A beautiful Sunday at the Swiss Park…

What a great day at the Swiss Park in Whittier, CA, about 20 minutes East from LA, off the 60. The event was masterfully organized by Lilo Holzer, Community Organizer and Producer of this traditional yearly Get-Together for the Swiss Community in the LA Area. Thank You Gabi Tscharner-Patao with daughter Leilani, who helped with documenting the day; more on that shortly!

The Helvetic.LA / Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce / Swiss Center LA booth was busy non-stop from 10am to 4pm, and dozens stopped by on their way home until 6pm to show support by getting an LA+ T-Shirt or Bumpersticker. (Yes, and online Store will follow shortly for those who forgot, didn’t have cash on hand or couldn’t attend 🙂 ).


It was fun sharing the booth with http://www.StreetBelt.com co-founder Reto Schürch, whose Recycled Fire-Hydrant-Marker-Fire-Hose-Belts were the Hippest item of the day! Reto’s Story is really interesting, knowing he’s been a Goalie for various Swiss Hockey Clubs (yes, he’s good friends with Jonas Hiller), and now involved in StreetBelt.com with two other visioneers, Hans-Jürg Kühni and Ciro Barisi.
