Activities

  • Identifying caches of photographs and articfacts
  • Scanning photographs
  • NEW: Let’s start scheduling an informal monthly or quarterly lunch – very informal – where if we want just a couple of us can show up or the whole group, and we can have a “person of historic interest” to visit with us (John Ferguson aka Count Gregore, John Belt, veteran Paseo developer since 70s, ad man Ray Ackerman, civic promoter Lee Allan Smith, businessman Jim Tolbert). Steve would be willing to set these up, and would be just as happy enjoying a lunch alone with these folks but could open it up to whole group. Just need to RSVP. Probably do the lunches at historic restaurants like The Lunch Box, Coney Island, etc.
