Upcoming History Alive Events:

Jan.  6, 2022: We’ll inaugurate “Film Night” inside the Lee House with a very pertinent program courtesy of long-time member  Jack Ofield, and his 16-year PBS sleeper hit series, The Short List (four Emmys!). The series was hailed for presenting unusual cultural portraits by unknown filmmakers from lesser-known lands. 

Feb. 3, 2022: Sarah Lewis, VP for Membership, reprises her dazzling dis-play of original items from the LGHS archives that thrilled attendees of the Oct. 9, 2021 dedication of Treganza Heritage Park. Sara lovingly assembled the real deal on tables inside the H. Lee House and explained who, what, why to a fare-thee-well. This archive wizard will tell you why “real” is so important to history.

Mar. 3, 2022: Helen Ofield, a past president of LGHS and current treasurer-historian to the board, is also a writer and film-video producer.  Her topic, “Where Are the Great Cat Burglars?” is a tongue-in-cheek look at crime in the 1950s-1960s in the Big Lemon when crooks were dopes (not like now when crooks are creeps).
