Bits and Pieces
Holiday Open House - On November 18, from 5-8 p.m., we hosted our annual Holiday Open House shopping event in the Museum Store. Store Manager Mary Gartner worked hard to have the shop stocked with special merchandise and beautifully decorated for the season by the date of the Open House. Several local food establishments prepared and donated holiday goodies for guests to enjoy along with hot spiced cider or a glass of wine. We’d like to especially thank the Brigantine, Boathouse, La Terrazza and Tartine restaurants and Albertson’s, Boney’s Bayside Market, and Trader Joe’s—Encinitas, and the Harmony Galore singers for the gorgeous music of the season.
Spreckels Society - At twilight on Friday, December 3, Spreckels Society members gathered to enjoy tastes and sips of the season while viewing the Coronado holiday parade and Rotary Plaza Christmas tree lighting from the great vantage point of the second-floor CHA offices. The December event was one of three special social events Spreckels members enjoyed sharing last year, including the July 4th party and parade viewing and the summer Spreckels Gala at the home of CHA Board Member/Treasurer Jim Kaufman.
Museum Studies Grad Begins Internship at CHA Sarah Dickey has been working in museums since 2000, as she was fortunate enough to have a museum on her high school campus. She received her B.A. in Anthropology and French from USC.
This past August she graduated from George Washington University with an M.A. in Museum Studies, with concentrations in Collections Management and Anthropology. While earning her degree, she interned and worked in several museums in Washington, D.C. Sarah is very excited to have started interning at the Coronado Historical Association.
CONA Time Capsule Sometime in the next several months, a time capsule will be buried in Coronado in honor of last year’s Centennial of Naval Aviation (CONA) celebration. The time capsule will be closed for 100 years, not to be opened again until the Bicentennial of Naval Aviation. CHA’s photos, documents and artifacts, among those from other organizations, will provide the next group of organizers a glimpse of Coronado and naval aviation in 2011, and a snapshot of what we did to celebrate the Centennial.
