Past C.A.C.A. Los Angeles Chapter President Dr. Pedro Chan will lead
 a tour dedicated to United States President Richard M. Nixon and his connections
 with the city of Whittier. Yorba Linda, California, is the birthplace of President Nixon, 
but the City of Whittier is considered his hometown. The Nixon family moved there 
when the future 37th U.S. President was nine years old.  President Nixon attended 
Whittier High and then Whittier College, and upon completion of his studies at 
Duke University School of Law he returned to Whittier and established his first 
legal practice. The round-trip bus tour departs from L.A.Chinatown on Friday, 
January 11, 2019, and features stops at the Pio Pico State Historic Park
Whittier College and the Whittier Museum, which features exhibits on 
President Nixon. Cost of the tour is $10/person including bus and lunch 
if purchased before Monday, January 7, 2019. Cost is $25/person thereafter. 
For information and reservations, contact Pek Chan at (213) 718-0746.
