As part of the Guild's on-going celebration of its 25th Anniversary this month's Newsletter contains a complete reprinting of Volume I Number 1 of the Newsletter edited (and we believe, written) by the late Janet Newton. We hope that our newest members will be impressed with the Guild's plans - even at that early date - and that our long-time members will enjoy reminiscing with us. So--
LIVERMORE HERITAGE GUILD
The City further offered the Livermore Heritage Guild matching funds up to $2500 to be used for the restoration of the building. The Guild has collected pledges of over $600 so far and the total grows steadily. We urge all members and friends to send in their pledges of money and/or work hours. Hundreds of hours have already been pledged but we need many more.
Emergency work to protect the depot from winter weather has been undertaken. We hope that vie will soon get an answer from the Southern Paciflic so the work of restoration can begin In earnest.
AN INVITATION TO VISiT THE AMADOR-LIVERMORE VALLEY HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM has been issued by Bill Ray, the curator, to see the artifacts of the Ohlone Indians whose ancestors were residents of this area.The Heritage Guild plans to visit the museum on October invited. We suggest car pools. Call your friends and get together for an evening of study and pleasure. The artifacts are the property of the Ohlone indians -- a very valuable collection.
LIVERMORE ARTS FESTIVAL At the Festival October 13 and 14, the Heritage Guild will have an exhibit of old Livermore photos and other materials, and members will be on duty to talk about our hopes and plans. The Guild is now a member organization of the Livermore Cultural Arts Council, the festival sponsors.
THE BUCKLEY HOUSE on Arroyo road is being renovated through the good offices of Rev. Mike Petrillo, director of the Youth Service Center presently using the structure. The property now belongs to the City of Livermore, including the 24 acres of park around the several, buildings. The Guild believes that all the buildings should be restored and made available for civic use. One possibility is to use the location for a display of several old Livermore buildings. The Guild has permission to hold an open house on the property in December. Our next newsletter will give details.
THE GUILD NEEDS: MEMBERS, SUPPORTERS. PLEDGES. ACT TODAY.
