Anaheim events update

Today's photo shows street paving in Anaheim in 1910. The photo is marked "Fairchild-Gilmore-Wilton."
The O.C. Mexican American Historical Society's next event is tied to a photo exhibit about Anaheim's Mexican community, hosted by the Anaheim Public Library. The program will be held in the Library, 500 W. Broadway, Oct. 11, 10am-Noon. Author Marcelino Saucedo will discuss "Mexican Heritage on Catalina Island." Angelina Veyna, Prof. of History & Chicano Studies at Santa Ana College, will discuss the history of Mexicans in Anaheim. Ms. Saucedo's book and the 2009 OCMAHS Images of Orange County Calendar will be available for sale.
Don't forget the Anaheim Historical Society's 2008 Historic Home Tour on Oct. 11 & 12, 10am-4pm. This tour is only held every other year, so sign up now or feel bad about missing it until 2010. See the AHS website for details.

If you come to the Anaheim House tour even be sure to stop by the "marketplace" booths on Center Street Promenade (where you get tickets for the tour) and say hi... I will have an information booth set up for the Dreger Clock project there with photos and other info.
