This is a short entry for two reasons. First, "Blogger" is having technical difficulties that prevent me from posting a photo. Also, I got a late start, having spent some of this evening at a meeting of the Educational Committee for the upcoming Huntington Beach Centennial. Speaking of which,... If you have any old photos of H.B. you'd be willing to let me scan and use in a documentary, please let me know.
A bit more information is now available on the upcoming Adobe Open House and Pioneer Picnic hosted by the Costa Mesa Historical Society (CMHS). The event will be held in Estancia Park (at the Diego Sepulveda Adobe), 1900 Adams Ave., Sept. 15th, 10am-3pm. There will be a presentation on "Pioneers of the Past" at 1pm by Patty Boardman. Bring a picnic lunch and a blanket. This is a free event honoring those whose families arrived in Costa Mesa prior to 1940. To contact the CMHS, call (949) 631-5918.
