Join the Glen Ellen Historical society in preserving past, informing future
The Glen Ellen Historical Society (GEHS) recently threw a daylong party at Jack London Village called “Happy Daze Are Here Again.” Six bands played on the decks over Sonoma Creek and the entire event was broadcast live over local radio station KSVY. The event also marked the launch of their annual membership drive.
The GEHS promotes the heritage of the original township of Glen Ellen as it was established in 1901. This area includes the Agua Caliente and Los Guilicos land grants, extending from the Springs near Sonoma up to Oakmont, and from Bennett Valley on the west over to the crest of the Mayacamas ridge on the east.
Over the years GEHS has produced many free public presentations about the rich legacy of this region, many of which are now available on DVD at the society’s website, www.glenellenhistoricalsociety.org.
GEHS is particularly concerned with remembering, preserving, and guiding the uniquely evolving character of the region, especially as visitors decide to stay to become residents, and as the valley begins facing increasingly inevitable development. Everyone who shares this concern is encouraged to help the society make sure that our history is never left behind, and that it continues instead to inform a relevant and sustainable future.
Tax deductible membership is still only $25 per year, and donations to GEHS efforts are also gratefully received. Checks may be sent to the Glen Ellen Historical Society at P.O. Box 35, Glen Ellen CA 95442. Visit www.glenellenhistoricalsociety.org for more information.
