Events Pay Tribute to Beaches’ Centennial

A longtime coastal family is organizing a series of special events to mark the 100th birthday of Royal Palms and White Point beaches this year.

The Hedley family, which established roots in the area in 1937, is presenting historic tours of the two beaches on May 17. The 30-minute tours will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Visitors will learn the history of the area by walking through the beaches and the grounds where a Japanese hotel and spa operated in the 1920s and ’30s, said Bungy Hedley.

Descendants of the founding Sepulveda family will also attend to talk about their ancestors’ leadership in early Harbor Area development.

For more information, call Bungy Hedley at (310) 831-6397.

San Pedro News will publish a more complete report of the centennial events in next week’s issue.
