How I Found Out About The Vintage Faire

And so on…

San Dieguito Heritage Voices

Just 15 minutes ago I was checking out my Twitter account (@ACrowdFunder) and I decided to see what was on the San Dieguito Heritage Museum’s feed (@SD_Heritage). I saw a tweet from about four hours ago that told me the news. Those of us with social media accounts often find out about events faster than we would have otherwise.

Volunteer Your Skills

Who Do You Know That Has The Skills & Courage To Volunteer?

San Dieguito Heritage Voices

This morning at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum we had a meeting with docents, volunteers and board members and talked about our recent and successful Lima Bean Faire. (If you’re even thinking of volunteering I want you to know that we definitely had yummy stuff to eat.) We talked about how everything went and what we can do better next year.

Ralph Stone, our new board president, presided (as presidents do) and asked a few of us afterwards if we could help with a tiny project before we went home. I took a handful of pictures to show you that it’s not all heavy lifting when you volunteer.

That brings me to the main point of this post. Maybe you or someone you know would like to work on the website or this blog instead of getting dusty and dirty. I’m not judging. As far as I’m concerned we should…

When Every Hour Was Earth Hour In The San Dieguito River Area

Ready For Earth Hour? There’s Plenty Of Time To Prepare!

San Dieguito Heritage Voices

Today I got up a little after five and as I start this post it’s still dark out. I’m reminded of my dad getting up before everyone during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. That’s part of MY heritage.

(He used to smoke and he claimed that it didn’t help his cough to live so close to the ocean in Leucadia. Maybe the chemicals he used on the flowers didn’t help and I suspect gluten might have played a role as well. We moved to Valley Center in 1976 and he claimed that it was a little better inland, but I still remember hearing his loud hacking early in the morning before he started his day.)

Another part of my (future?) heritage is Earth Hour. Most people have heard of Earth Day by now, but Earth Hour is one hour that acts as a reminder that Earth Day is coming. I…

Did You Miss The 6th Annual Lima Bean Faire?

Have You Considered Volunteering?

San Dieguito Heritage Voices

Today I’m relaxing in front of the Charger game while I write a little snippet about the 6th Annual Lima Bean Faire and Battle of the Beans which took place on September 27, 2014. My gout is only a shadow of its former self and the Chargers are beating the Jets 28-0 in the 3rd quarter. It looks like the next Chargers win should go off without a hitch as long as there are no serious mistakes.

Last night I got a text from Fred Bruns, current president of the San Dieguito Heritage Museum, and he said the consensus is that this year’s event was the best Lima Bean Faire ever. It seems that despite a few hitches beforehand we had a successful event with the help of all our wonderful volunteers and supporters.

A very sincere thank you to all our volunteers and supporters!

Thank you also to the…
