2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES
The photo scrapbooks of Chi Chi Chi fraternity at LA Pierce College gives us a great opportunity to peek into San Fernando Valley student life at the onset of the 1960s. Many of the young men and women seen in these pictures were soon to leave carefree lives for war in Southeast Asia.
Pledges (uninitiated members) were expected to put on elaborate parties as part of their admission to the fraternity as full members. The photo above was a pledge party of the XXX Fraternity in the Spring of 1963. Refer to photo 1906 - click on image to enlarge.
