The Glendale Historical Society elected its officers for 2011-2012. Greg Grammer will serve the organization as President. He has served as Vice President for the past three years. Grammer replaces John LoCascio who remains on the Board of Directors for the remainder of his term.
“I look forward to ensuring that the Glendale Historical Society remains an effective voice for the preservation and promotion of Glendale’s rich history and architectural heritage,” Grammer said.
Victoria Lasken will serve as Vice President. Marty Bracciotti serves as Secretary and Sean Bersell serves as Treasurer. Margaret Hammond, Marcia Hanford, Scott Lasken and Joe Selph also serve on the board of directors.
Grammer said that the organization’s top priorities are to increase the number of historic districts and landmark designations in Glendale in addition to society members. In 2009 he and his partner Simon nominated their 1936 French Revival home to the Glendale Register of Historic Resources. He also worked on establishing Glendale’s first historic district, the Royal Boulevard Historic District.
Grammer added that the Glendale Historical Society will reach out to the Walt Disney Company on the upcoming restoration of the Grand Central Air Terminal. The society will also work with Caruso Affiliated and the 1928 Mission Revival building façade at the Americana at Brand.
