December meeting of Orange County Historical Society to feature ‘show and tell’

It’s time once again to rack your brain and rummage through your garage and your scrapbooks in preparation for the Orange County Historical Society’s annual Show & Tell and holiday gathering.

Bring a choice artifact, photo, or a bit of memorabilia that connects to an interesting story about Orange County’s past.

Maybe it’s an orange crate from the packing plant mom worked in. Or maybe it’s great-grandpa’s branding iron, an early redwood surfboard, a plate from an old local restaurant, or Don Juan Forster’s toothbrush. Everyone’s looking forward to seeing and hearing about the item you bring.

We’ll have a sign-up sheet when you enter and participants will be called up one at a time. The public is welcome!

Our program will be held Thursday, December 9, at 7:30 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal St., Orange. As always, members and the general public are cordially invited to attend. (Doors open at 7 pm.)

If you’re not a member, please consider becoming part of the OCHS today. (Dues start at $30, $25 for seniors.) Membership support lets us host these meetings and funds our archives and all the other services we offer to document and celebrate Orange County history.
