Capistrano, Anaheim High School, and pioneers

Today's photo (again courtesy Mike Tucker,) shows Mission San Juan Capistrano in the 1960s. Someone more familiar with the Mission's recent history could probably tell us the exact year based on the construction in the background. I believe that's Mike's mom in the dark blue coat.
Anaheim High School's well-worn Cook Auditorium (1936) may get a new lease on life. Eighty-one-year-old alumnus Reggie Massie began a movement to restore the building and started a foundation to raise funds. Other Anaheim alumni on the foundation's board include realtor Paul Kott and former Anaheim mayor (now Orange County Clerk-Recorder) Tom Daly.
The O.C. Agricultural & Nikkei Heritage Museum will open a new exhibit, “A Determined Lot: Resilient Pioneers Forge a New County’s Future,” on Feb. 16.
