Wednesday, February 26, Meeting Set for 7 P.M. at City Hall Chambers

Our featured guests at our February meeting will be Joe Dunn, author of the book Pocket of Paradise: The Story of Beach Road and his guest, local sailing legend Wayne Schafer. In the book, Joe Dunn tells the story of Capistrano Beach’s Beach Road from the days of Junipero Serra to the early development by the Doheny family and to the creation of the Hobie Cat sailboat right there on the beach. He introduces the locals, tells the stories, and brings to life the small Southern California beach community that has had a big impact on the country’s surf-and-beach lifestyle culture. The presentation will begin promptly at 7 pm in City Hall Chambers (33282 Golden Lantern Street) with a reception to follow at our museum. Be sure to join us for a look back at this slice of history from Capo Beach. You can find an excerpt from Joe Dunn’s book here:
