HERITAGE GUILD HAPPENINGS

Note from Curator: Suddenly, within the past few months one of my fondest dreams for the History Center is coming true: The Guild has received for our permanent collection the papers, documents, publicity files, etc. of a number of organizations - nonprofit, commercial and govemmental.

The influx of material has strained our present storage area to its maximum capacity, so we are planning a re-do of the Harp Room downstairs at the Carnegie Building to increase our storage space.

But before everything goes downstairs, I would like to ask our members to donate some time to the History Center an hour or two or more of an afternoon to look at some of the publicity scrapbooks we have acquired and, possibly, identify individuals in the many photographs. I can name a few of them but not nearly enough and would like to have your help in this most enjoyable part of the History Center's work. We are open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:30a.m. to 4 p.m. (major holidays excepted!) I would very much appreciate the aid.

The LHG 2002 Calendars are in! Price is $8.50 each and they are beautiful with a watercolor of Robert Livermore in Monterey on the cover. Get your copy now for Christmas gifts as they will go fast.

Don't forget the Open House on December 8th.
