Santa Catalina Island Twenty-Five Year Club
Santa Catalina Island Twenty-Five Year Club was organized by long-time Avalon resident, Peter Lubetich (1871-1939). In 1933, the local Avalon paper noted:
- “Pete Lubetich is still wearing his '25 years on Catalina' button and takes his daily walks around town and cashiers here and there and yonder.
