Orange Mutual, Anaheim Colony, and life stories

Packing House news: The old Orange Mutual Citrus Association packing house (1924) on Almond Ave in Orange is being sold. The Lamonica family and their partners are asking $4.95 million. Kudos to the City of Orange for mandating that this historic structure cannot be torn down. Otherwise, I'm sure it would be another bank of condos by next week.

Life Story Class: A free 16-week writing class will be offered at The Center at Founders Village, 17967 Bushard, in Fountain Valley, Tusedays from 9am to Noon, beginning Jan. 30th. Students will learn techniques for spurring their own memories and writing compelling life histories for their children and grandchildren. Call (714) 593-4446 for information.

More house moving: Two small "railroad bungalows" in the Anaheim Colony historic district will be moved out of the path of bulldozers early tomorrow morning -- starting at 2am.

Cheap books: The Fullerton Friends of the Library will hold a used book sale this weekend at the Main Library, 353 W. Commonwealth Ave. Hours are 1pm-4pm Fri, 10am-4pm Sat, & 1pm-4pm Sun.
