New Town 1876

Downtown San Diego was known as New Town when this photo was taken in 1876.  Click HERE to see a larger view, and what details I was able to cobble together.

Cuyamaca Memories -- And One Other Thing

Lyn Gillis Parker '65 has three great memories of Camp Cuyamaca.  Click HERE (and scroll down) to learn what they are.  Lyn would also like to gently remind you that it's been three years since her grand-daughter and daughter-in-law were killed in a traffic accident.  The foundation Lyn established in their memory has donated $26,000 to charities in Lyn's neck of the woods.   Says Lyn, “Thank you for considering a donation & please join us Saturday, October 16th at Santa Fe Park on  “Route 66” in Needles for the 2K, 5K and 10K runs, raffles, auctions, games for kids, and community BBQ"  Click HERE to learn about the photo at the left.  (Lyn's the hottie in the middle)  Email Lyn if you have questions.

Restored San Diego State Mural Dedicated

George Sorensen '69 was in town this week for the dedication of the restored mural his father painted in 1936.  The San Diego U-T did a nice article on it.  Click HERE to enjoy it.  George says he's going to give me a little more warning next trip so we can get together.  Perhaps you'd like to join us.

Tony Kent Charger Party

Friends of the late Tony Kent '74 will gather on Sunday to watch the Chargers-Oakland game at Nico's Steak & Chop House, 2015 Birch Road, in Chula Vista.   (Hint:  It's across from AMC Theaters at Otay Ranch Town Center).  The doors open at 11 AM.  Contact Kim McGee if you have questions.
