Historical Society meets April 27

NICE – The first meeting of the Lake County Historical Society in their new area in Nice will begin Sunday, April 27, 2 p.m. at the clubhouse.

The speaker is Bob Lossius, assistant director of Public Works, who will talk on the "History and Future of the Levee" that forms the Reclamation Area near Upper Lake.

This area contains points most unusual in the history of Lake County. This is also the initiation of our new clubhouse, almost in sight of the area being discussed.

Lossius will hold forth for a question-and-answer session and, of course, the topic will be opened to general discussion. We expect the audience from that area, to be full of interesting information on the history of the area.

Secondly, K.C. Patrick, author of the nenwly published “Images of America: The Pomo of Lake County” will speak briefly about her book and be available to sign copies.

Please feel free to bring your favorite goodies, cake or cookies to share. Coffee and light refreshments will be available.

President Randy Ridgel also suggests you follow the directions to our location, as it is not on Mapquest. We are located in part of the county park in Nice, (Keeling Park). If coming from the east on Highway 20, a few blocks past the intersection of Highway 20 and Nice-Lucerne Cutoff, turn right on Carson Street (Floyd Street intersects at the same place on the left). Proceed to the intersection of Carson and Lakeshore (about five to six blocks) and turn left into our lot up the driveway. (We are across the street from the county park on the lake.)

Coming from the east on Highway 20, pass up the first entrance to Lakeshore Drive, pass through most of Nice until the second chance to turn left on Lakeshore Boulevard (the old Nice-Lucerne Cutoff), just past where Manzanita goes off to the right. Turn right into our parking lot up the grade.

Please bring some folding chairs for your use. We do welcome visitors.
