LHG 2001 Annual General Meeting and Open House
September 29, 2001

LUNCHEON ­­ The Livermore Heritage Guild held its 2001 Annual General Meeting (AGM) for its members at the Duarte Garage on Saturday, September 29. The event started at 12 o'clock noon with a luncheon prepared by Gimanelli's Catering Service.

SPEAKER ­­ Following the meal, Guild members were privileged to have special guest speaker Maj. J. R. Schlechter who gave a presentation about Lincoln Highway. Before his retirement several years ago, Major Schlechter regularly patrolled portions of California highways that once made up the California section of The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Highway, America's first transcontinental highway. For the past few years Major Schlechter has been researching and documenting the Western end of the Lincoln Highway from San Francisco to the Utah boarder. The Duarte Garage, built in 1915, was along the original Lincoln Highway which was completed in 1915.
