January 1, 2012 (Lemon Grove)—“Joe Young, for more than three decades the go-to guy at the Helix Water District for all things H2O, will star on the next "History Alive" lecture,” announced Helen M. Ofield, president of the Lemon Grove Historical Society.  The lecture will be held Jan. 5 at 7 p.m. in the H. Lee House Cultural Center, 3205 Olive, Lemon Grove.

“With a vivid PowerPoint, Joe will take you upstream and downstream in search of knowledge about the single most vital element, outside of oxygen, needed to sustain life.  Literally, there is no pipeline, storage tank, reservoir, culvert, steam, river, lake, dam, pumping station, or historical flume that Joe has not overseen, investigated, fixed and/or improved,” Ofield said.
She added, “When you turn on the tap for that conservation-conscious, three-minute shower, or draw crystalline water from the kitchen faucet, think of the global millions who lack a source of potable water and a Joe Young to ensure that the real deal reaches home in time for daily use.”
"History Alive" is suitable for ages 13 and over.  Refreshments follow the presentation, which is free to the general public (but don't hesitate to leave a donation for the tea and cookies).  For more information call 619-460-4353.
