SAN DIMAS -- Alan and Claudia Heller will speak on Route 66 at the Wednesday meeting of the San Dimas Corral of Westerners.

Alan Heller serves as president of Duarte's Public Access Channel and Claudia Heller is president of the Duarte Historical Society. They have a recently released book, published by HistoryPress, "Life on Route 66, on their personal accounts along the Mother Road.

Anyone with an interest in local or western history can attend the meeting at 6 p.m. at the Atria Rancho Park dining room, 801 Cypress Way.

The cost is $13, ($15 for non members).
