President's Message
Richard White

  The Cedar Fire Memorial Committee is excited to announce that we are getting closer to the realization of our hopes.  First, a local artist, Myfanwy "Muffin" Bekker-Balajadia, has provided us with a conceptual drawing for the Memorial that seems to agree with everyone that has seen it.  It is available for viewing on the Society's web site at

  Second, we have been given a small piece of land for the Memorial to call home.  It is located on the corner of Channel Road and Lakeside Avenue, across from where the Visitor's Center of the new San Diego River Park will be located.  This generous donation came from the San Diego River Park - Lakeside Conservancy.
  And finally, we have been rewarded by the generosity of community members and business owners with donations, plus another very generous donation from San Diego River Park - Lakeside Conservancy.  A list of those who have contributed to our cause can be seen on the Society's web site.
  Thank you to everyone who has supported the Cedar Fire Memorial so far.  Even though we are closer to making this memorial a reality, we still need your help.  Please send your tax-deductible donations to Cedar Fire Memorial, c/o Lakeside Historical Society, 9906 Maine Avenue, Lakeside CA 92040.  Make your check payable to: Lakeside Historical Society.

Pot Pie Dinner 2-23-04. Chief Stein center.

Many Thanks . . .

  Many thanks go out to the volunteers who made the Society's Pot Pie Dinners a success.  They are: Cameron Anderson, Lee Bost, Elaine and Chuck Brack, Susan Brown, Pat Ellwood, Cathy and Bill Hansen, Elizabeth and Bob Howe, Edna Kouns, Jessie Lynch, Nancy Nowka, Tina White, and Barbara and Ray Whitlock (Kitchen Chairman).  Without the dedication of members like these, events like this would not be possible.
  A special thank you goes to Fire Chief Paul H. Stein, and the Lakeside Fire Department, for the touching presentation on the Cedar Fire named "Small Department, Big Fire."

Western Days Breakfast April 24th

  It's once again time for Lakeside's Western Days and the Lakeside Historical Society's Annual Western Days Breakfast.  The breakfast will be served at Lakeside's Olde Community Church (9906 Maine Avenue) beginning at 7:00 AM.  The breakfast will continue to be served until 10:30 AM while the Western Day Parade slowly passes by this historic monument.  The cost of this feast is only a reasonable $6.00.
  Again, this year we can really use your help.  We need: help on Friday to set-up tables, etc.  This should take about an hour -- we will agree on a time to meet later. We also need cooks, servers, waiters/waitresses, and help with clean-up at around 11:00 AM.

  With enough volunteers, we can all work two hour      shifts the day of the breakfast.
  If you are interested in donating a little bit of your time to this fundraiser that benefits our Society, please call Ray Whitlock at 561-2028, or the Society at 561-1886.
