CVGS Meeting on Monday, 8/27

Rather than cooping up our members in a warm auditorium in August to hear a genealogy presentation, the Chula Vista Genealogical Society takes their monthly meeting outside - we have a Picnic in the shade at the local Elks Lodge picnic area. And we try to have genealogy fun.

The picnic is on Monday, August 27 at 11 AM at the Elks Lodge in Chula Vista (901 Elks Lane, off of Telegraph Canyon Road). This is a "bring your own food and beverage" deal, and there will be a door prize drawing. There will also be a "white elephant" gift exchange - bring one to get one. There is always a lot of laughter and sharing at these events.

The program will be teams of attendees playing the game "Wheel of (Genealogy) Fortune" with a Pat Sajak stand-in (rumored to be Randy Seaver) and a Vanna White stand-in (all of the women want to do this - "Pat" gets to pick!). The teams of contestants will spin the Wheel and try to solve genealogy-oriented word puzzles and win valuable prizes (well, maybe). It should be a good time.

Guests and visitors are always welcome at CVGS meetings. If you need more information, please contact Randy at rjseaver(at)
