Tustin Area Historical Society's
Innovative Mobile Museum Program

February General Meeting

Tuesday, February 19th, 7 pm, Tustin Senior Center

Our February General Meeting shares how our successful TAHS Mobile Museum program teaches school children about Tustin area history. Funded by the society and run thanks to caring volunteers, the program reaches all of the 3rd grade students in the Tustin School District with an innovative Living History approach to our local history. Rather than just read about it, the Mobile Museum program lets the students experience our history.

The volunteers at the meeting will show you the roles they play at area schools. Don Larson, dressed as a Tustin farmer, shares information about the Irvine Ranch and a farmer's life in long-ago Tustin. Margaret Pottenger entertains with fun stories from the past including one about orange milk.

You can channel your inner 3rd grader when Laurie Lovret talks about how school life has changed. And Joe Sprekelmeyer, dressing as a Union artillery soldier, discusses the Civil War, which even affected California.

A question-answer period will follow.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 19th from 7 to 9 pm at the Tustin Senior Center Multi-Purpose Room, 200 South C St.

The Society's general meetings are free and open to the public. (Remember, this meeting will be at the Senior Center for this month.) Refreshments will be served.
