From the Director

Yesterday the historical society hosted two very special guests: Mr. and Mrs. Harry Summers. After a videotaped interview conducted by Eileen Haag, Myrna Reese and myself, community members greeted Mr. Summers and reminisced about the founding of Rancho Bernardo in the 60s.
I was honored to receive a donation from the couple afirming their interest in a permanent museum building and preserving local history.
In the future when someone asks "How did Rancho Bernardo begin?" I can now say that I met the founder and visionary of the planned community. There can be no greater legacy that the historical society can pass on to future generations than this all important history.
Thank you, Mr. Summers!
