East County News Service

February 1, 2016 (Lemon Grove) - On Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. in the Lemon Grove Library, 3001 School Lane, the Lemon Grove Historical Society will bring back Louise Mathews, the former 21-year Chief of Food Service for San Diego County Prisons. She'll bring her book, "Jail House Cuisine: From the Right Side of the Bars" and describe how to produce 40,000 meals a day. 

“Her stories have to be heard to be believed!” says Helen Ofield, president of the Lemon Grove Historical Society. "If you missed Mathews' lecture to a packed house on "History Alive" in January (it was a dark and stormy night, we get it), here's your chance to hear the whole, unique story from one of the most amazing figures in county government.  A 2 p.m. matinee, daylight, free parking -- what could be better?  See you soon, history lovers!”

Videotaping of "History Alive" is made possible by a Community Enhancement Grant from the San Diego Board of Supervisors on the recommendation of Supervisor Dianne Jacob, District 2. Ancillary costs of the series are possible in part by the Mary England Endowment for Education.  Lectures are suitable for ages 18 and over.
