Why Krista Joined The Ebell: “I came across an article from the Los Angeles Evening Citizen, 1950 when I was researching the history of the historic home I am staying in. The article shared details of the former home owner having the Ebell Junior members over for afternoon tea. There was also a listing for the same event in the Los Angeles Times, September 5th, 1950. Ironically, it was almost exactly 71 years to the date! I found the article on September 3rd, two days after I moved in. I figured it was meant to be. I fell in love with the club right away for its history in educating women and its powerful impact in Los Angeles through generations.
