San Diego Historic Tour

Mary Garbaciak organized a fabulous historic tour of Balboa Park in San Diego. Thirteen ladies joined her for this adventure. Just returning from the trip, she describes what is happening in the pictures below.

"In the first picture guide Gabe Selak is telling us about the history of the brewing companies in San Diego and how they have grown and become a part of the development of the community. 

 The 2nd picture is with Jan Kenealy, Archivist.  She spoke about the historical archives that are stored in the basement of Balboa Park.  She was kind enough to put out several very old articles of interest to our ladies.  There are literally millions of photos, documents and articles in these vaults that are available to the public.  Both Gabe and Jane were most appreciative of the Tastes & Treasures  historic cookbook that I gave them as gifts."
