December 29, 2016 (Lemon Grove) – The next History Alive lecture in the Lemon Grove Library has been moved to January 14 at 2 p.m.  Lemon Grove Historical Society is partnering with the Lemon Grove Library to present master nurse and noted lecturer, Donna Vitale Lupinacci, in a riveting words-and-pictures look at "The Influenza Pandemic of 1917-18 and Its Aftermath."  As "Spanish Flu" swept the globe, no community was exempt from its effects, including Lemon Grove.

The lecture is part of our focus on the 2017 centennial of America's entry into World War One (1914-1918). You won't want to miss this inside look at a disease that debuted during the "war to end all wars" and continues to haunt humanity today.

This lecture is suitable for ages 18 and over.  Information: 619-463-9819 or 619-460-4353.

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 underwritten in part by the Mary England Endowment for Education.
