We want to tell you a little bit about some of the wonderful people that call Avalon their home…Rose Ellen (Arno) Gardner is a true Islander and one of a few actually born on the island. Rose Ellen’s parents, Joe and Rose Arno arrived in Avalon in 1934 to run the local fish market eventually owning the market, Catalina Café, Arno’s Seafood Grotto and the ice concession.
