Latin Music Extraordinaire at St. Peter's Episcopal Church postponed

Our summer music concert at St. Peter's has become an annual event enjoyed by many, but we regret to announce the postponement of this year's event, An Afternoon of Latin Music Extraordinaire, which was to be held on Saturday, July 19th. Please stay in tune for a new date which will be announced at the library and on this webpage sometime in the near future.

Friends Annual Dinner and Election

Our annual dinner will be held on Friday, October 24th at Ports O'Call Restaurant. This year's guest speaker will the author Henrietta Mosley who has written the book, Point Fermin Lighthouse Families 1873-1927. She will be joined by our member, Martha McKinzie whose ancestors were the last keepers of the lighthouse. Reservations will be sent to members in September and will be downloadable from this webpage at that time. This will be a wonderful opportunity for San Pedrans to enrich their knowledge about San Pedro and for others who are interested in the history of lighthouses in America. Please get your reservations in early. We will probably have a fullhouse as usual.
