Rancho Bernardo Museum Ground Breaking Ceremony

The Rancho Bernardo Historical Society has come a long way. After years of planning and fundraising, ground has been broken on a new museum building to be built on the grounds of the Bernardo Winery! As many of you may already know from my prior postings, I have been a board member of the RBHS for the last 2 years and have had the priviledge to be involved with this wonderful project.

This Saturday, February 9th, Ken Kramer, host of About San Diego and reporter for NBC 7/39 welcomed over 160 visitors to this historic event. County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price and Councilmember Brian Maienschein were also present to reaffirm their support.

It takes lots of dedicated work from volunteers, contributors, and supporters to go from a dream to what will become a beautiful new building. I must acknowledge the sponsors for this particular event who provided the food, shovels, decorations, and money... Merrill Lynch, Cafe Merlot, Bernardo Winery, Dixieline Lumber, Bernardo Gardeners. Thanks to you all!

Please visit our RBHS website and help us continue our fundraising as we begin the year-long construction phase!
