Fountain Valley, Anaheim, Jackie Dooley, etc.

Today's photo is an undated aerial view of the old Lucero ranch at Newhope and Warner in Fountain Valley. I'd guess it's from the late 1940s, but that's only a guess. I believe the house still stands. The photo came to me from Dann Gibb.
The Anaheim Historical Society will host the 2008 Anaheim Historic Home Tour on Oct. 11 & 12, 10am-4pm. This is always a popular event with some great houses. They are also looking for volunteers - Anyone who works a half-day's shift gets a FREE ticket to the event. To volunteer, contact Annie Kupfrian.

Hey, thanks for the Anaheim plug! We also need cars for the Classic Car Show, and we are offering a free ticket to the tour for each car shared, for each day! Contact me at 714-292-0042 if you want to show off your classic car.
