From the Director

December 17th-20th, the Bernardo Winery is hosting Holiday Nights from 4-8 pm. Please stop by the RBHS Museum to see our current exhibit. RBHS volunteer Peggy Rossi has scanned the covers of the holiday issues of the Brandings. I think you will be surprised at the layout of this publication and how it reflects the history of our community.

Here is what Peggy wrote:

Bernardo Brandings

This exhibit consists of a number of December holiday covers and ads from the Bernardo Brandings Magazine. The Brandings began publishing July 1962 as a newspaper-style tabloid of only a few pages. It grew into a full-color, multi-page magazine that continued to publish until December 1976 when costs became prohibitive. The magazine brought news of the physical growth of the RB community along with culture news such as club reports and a regular column by Marge Gibson titled "RB Social Scene."

The RBHS museum archives has almost a complete run of the magazine. The new museum will feature a library where the magazines will be available for viewing.
