The Streets of Walnut Creek, Yesterday and Today From Pioneer Days to the Present

Walnut Creek wasn't always the bustling commercial and financial mecca that it is today. How did we get to where we are? Who were the movers and shakers of yesteryear? This year, 2014, we celebrate 100 years of our incorporation as a city, but our history goes back further than that.

We are pleased to welcome to our shop two distinguished members of the Walnut Creek Historical Society, Sheila Rogstad and Ann Shelton. Sheila and Ann will be walking us through the past 100+ years of Walnut Creek's history, so join us to learn more about the wonderful city in which many of us live, work, and play.

We will have a limited number ofcopiesWalnut Creek, An Illustrated History, available the evening of the discussion. This is one of several books Brad Rovanpera has written on local history; Brad was born in Walnut Creek and served as the city's public information officer from 1985 to 2009. The book is lavishly illustrated with more than 260 early photographs and illustrations and will serve as the basis of our discussion together.

Seating will be limited, so please RSVP to hold a space.
