A century has passed since the tiny community of Hermon,  founded in 1903 on the east side of the Arroyo Seco across from Highland Park,  decided to give up its independence and become part of the City of Los Angeles. To mark the 100th anniversary of the annexation, Hermon residents will hold an “Annex”-versary on Saturday June 2 at Hermon Park, where organizers have arranged for live music, historical displays, an art show, arts and crafts and a “BBQ and watermelon feed.” Tickets will also be sold for  a Hermon’s Hidden Treasure Tour on the following day.
