2:00 PM: Storytelling Hour: Tales of Early California by Ernie Marquez
We have scheduled a quiet time hour of storytelling by our Historian Ernie Marquez who has mezmerizing stories of Early California. Today's lecture will talk about daily life on an 1839 Mexican Rancho. Parents are asked to give children a handful of small coins with which to make their donations for admission. $1 for children under age 5; $2 for children up to age 10. We ask that the child personally place the coins into the donation box as part of our program to teach the young about donating to their communities' cultural and charitable activities. The handful of coins seems like 'a lot' of money to the young child. Adults $10 by check please.
