I have recently purchased the book “The San Lorenzo Valley Water District-A History” written by local historian (and super nice guy) Randall Brown. The name of this book didn’t immediately grab me, but I’m so glad I bought it. It’s fascinating! I had no idea it was also filled with tons of history of the area and a great selection of photos, too. Some books I read so quickly that I find I missed half of it. This one I’m reading slowly and savoring.
Happy February 29th!
You would probably be interested in his upcoming a talk sponsored by the San Lorenzo Valley Chamber of Commerce. It is on March 27 at 9am at the Satellite. It is scheduled as a breakfast meeting: http://www.slvchamber.org/breakfast-meeting.php.
Here is the one-sentence summary:
“Historian Randall Brown informs us about the long, colorful history of the business community in the San Lorenzo Valley dating back to the 1800s.”
Hi Lara. Thanks! I’m a member of the SLV Chamber of Commerce and am looking forward to hearing Randy speak.
