FALLBROOK – The 56th annual Community Picnic hosted at and by the Fallbrook Historical Society took place on June 29. The event is a Fallbrook tradition that began in 1958 and was originally known as the Old Timers Picnic.
The annual potluck/picnic originated as a reunion for longtime residents to gather and remember “the good old days” in the Friendly Village. Anxious to share Fallbrook’s heritage with newer residents, the annual affair changed names and now includes everyone – longtime residents as well as new ones.
The picnic provides not only an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with ancestors of local settlers, but also to explore and tour the historical museum and grounds.
Those who missed the great food, good friends, and fond memories this year should mark their calendars now for the last Sunday in June 2015!
