Save the Dates!

2024 will be  year to remember with these fantastic History Alive Lectures:

Jan 4:  The Lemon Grove Review is now DIGITIZED! Sarah Lewis and Cynthia Doyle will update you on our years-long project to digitize 50 years of the Lemon Grove Review newspaper and make it free and searchable online! Join us as we explore the newspaper’s history, share updates on our project’s progress, and learn how to access and search this newly available resource.

Feb 1: How the Parsonage Museum Came to Be  On hand to tell the story will be key players, the foreman Gary Elbert and the director Helen Ofield.  Together with the wonderful City of Lemon Grove , which said YES to the project and volunteers like Tome Clabby, Ernie Strzelecki, Amorita Treganza, Dorthey Kaupe and teams of  Americorps kids, we did it!
