History Alive – Spotlight on Archives
Thursday, February 3rd at 7:00pm
Lee House Cultural Center, 3205 Olive St., Lemon Grove

Board member Sarah Lewis will take you on a tour through our archives.  What was Lemon Grove like 100 years ago? What really tells the story of our little city with the big lemon? Come see original artifacts along with a show-and-tell presentation. 

Hear our oldest piece of audio and see an Old Time Days parade film that was rescued from reel-to-reel tapes at city offices.  See promotional brochures, dive into the Forward Club’s history, see our oldest yearbook, and see an incredible example from our family papers collection. 

Don’t miss this rare chance to get a peak into our city’s past!
