At Our Next Meeting on January 18th:

Historic Tales of Alamo!

Alamo rarely makes news headlines.  It does, however, have a fascinating cast of characters that once graced its lovely homes and whose lives were noted in the media of that day.  Author Sharon Burke will share stories about some of them at the January 18, 2024 San Ramon Valley Historical Society dinner meeting.  Among them was a California State Senator and a California Supreme Court Justice.  Another made a huge contribution to San Francisco Bay’s infrastructure and the last person was a bigamist and an infamous land swindler.  All of their lives have faded into history with the passage of time but each of them had a large impact on California history.  Make sure you join us that evening at the Black Bear Diner in Danville.  Without a doubt you will have new stories to tell!

See you there!

The San Ramon Valley Historical Society meets at 7 pm on the third Thursday of the months of January, March, May, September, and November, at the Black Bear Diner in Danville.  Dinner and program tickets are $25.00 per person.
