On A Sunny Southern California Day...

These women were participants in the L.A. City Mission Women's Auxiliary club's International Doll Festival. Nisei women served as greeters for the event. Acknowledgments in the event program read: "Our grateful thanks are extended to the following: The women of the Gardena Valley Church who prepared luncheon; Mrs. Bessie Shikagawa, for the beautiful floral arrangements; the Roger Williams, Spanish Baptist and Immanuel Churches, who shared their equipment to make us comfortable; all of the women and Guild girls who lovingly dressed dolls. To the Doll Festival committee composed of Mrs. Don Burkdoll, chairman, working with Mrs. William Shinto and Miss Jane Gahs, all of the Key Women, and those who assisted in making this a significant day, we express our deepest appreciation."
