Legendary Stories Behind the Legion of Honor
Virginia Ernster, Speaker

This talk tells tall-but-true tales in the history of San Francisco’s Legion of Honor Museum. They include a benefactress who was a force of nature (Alma Spreckels), as well as a prince in Paris, a self-proclaimed emperor, a pioneer of modern dance, San Francisco’s 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, a former cemetery-turned-golf course, and more—not to mention great art!

Until then, Season’s Greetings. See you all in the New Year!

It’s time to renew your membership

to the OVA Office at 6637 Oakmont Drive, Suite A, Santa Rosa CA 95409 or drop it off. Please don’t send cash. It’s sometimes hard to know who left it.

OAA Board members needed.

We need a Trip Director and a Publicity Director now, and next year we will need elected members of the board. If you think you could help or need further information, email or call Phil Wilkinson at docsevo@me.com or 707 529-4587. In the past, we have had a bus trip in November, but there will be none this year due to lack of a Trip Director. Help us out with your skills, or double up with a friend to fill a vacant position.
