Coastside history recounted by local authors at AAUW , Monday, Mar 15


By on Fri, March 12, 2010

The American Association of University Women’s March 15 general meeting is sure to enlighten and educate you about the history of Half Moon Bay and the Coastside. Three Coastside locals will join us to discuss their books on Half Moon Bay and Kings Mountain history. 

Hear these authors share tidbits of local lore, discuss what inspired them to write their book and explain their research and writing process.  You will learn about the people and events that impacted the history of our area.  The authors will have copies of their books to sign and sell.
Featured authors will be:

  • Dave Cresson – “Turning Points: Through the Windows of the Zaballa House” and “The Treasures of Half Moon Bay”
  • Michael Orange – “Half Moon Bay: Historic Coastside Reflections”
  • Stacy Trevenon – “Images of America - Kings Mountain"

After the panel discussion, Mary Sheridan will lead us on a tour of the historic CUMC chapel.  Built in 1872, the chapel is on the National Registry of Historic Buildings and is the oldest operating church in San Mateo County.  In addition to the history of the chapel, Mary will explain the very touching story behind the chapel’s beautiful stained glass windows and tell you how many times the chapel has actually been moved and turned around!
As part of our general meeting, Tech Trek Chair, Julie Gerth, will give a brief update on Tech Trek and what a great opportunity it would be to contribute to this innovative, worthwhile project.  In addition she will have a new DVD from camp to share.
