2018 Board Elections!
On Saturday, November 18, 2017, the South County Historical Society held their annual membership meeting and election of officers. A slate of board members was provided by the membership committee and no nominations were offered from the floor. A unanimous vote of the quorum of members elected the officers as proposed.
Lunch followed the election of officers to all in attendance. The refreshment committee did an outstanding job of providing pizza, deserts and drinks.
The election was followed by a presentation from Jim Gregory who announced the release of his latest book, "San Luis Obispo Outlaws, Desperados, Vigilantes and Bootleggers". A reading by Mr. Gregory provided an interesting insight into the early years of lawlessness in San Luis Obispo County. Copies of his book are available at the SCHS.
