"In, About and Around San Diego" Program at SDGS on Saturday, 12 July

The San Diego Genealogical Society meeting on Saturday, 12 July will feature the annual Ice Cream Social and Ken Kramer's "In, About, and Around San Diego" video program.

The meeting will be at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, located at 8350 Lake Murray Blvd. (at Jackson Drive) in San Diego. The meeting will start at 12 noon. There will be a break for the Ice Cream at about 1 p.m.

The program description and Ken Kramer's CV reads:

"Do you enjoy stories about San Diego the way it used to be -- stories that recount the unusual, the little known anecdotes that make the history of our city so interesting? If so, don't miss Ken Kramer's talk about the people and history of the place we call home. He takes a look at the funny, odd, and fascinating things that make our region unique in his light-hearted, humorous manner that has earned him many broadcast awards.

"Mr. Kramer hosts the 'About San Diego' broadcast every Sunday at 6 p.m. on NBC (channel 7/39). He began telling stories about San Diego on KSDO-AM radio during the morning and 'drive-time' afternoon broadcasts back in 1985. For the next 14 years, it was a daily listening mainstay for thousands of San Diegans, winning 'Golden Mike' and San Diego Press Club and other awards. In 1994, Mr. Kramer brought his historical video vignettes to NBC 7/39 which are still broadcast on the 'News at 11' each Friday night (and repeated on the Saturday and Sunday morning news). They have won four Emmy Awards."

At the Ice Cream Social, you can order up your own ice cream sundae with all the fixings. Different ice cream flavors will be $1 per scoop and each topping will be 25 cents. The big decision will be whether to have 1, 2 or 3 scoops - and is that with sprinkles, fudge or caramel? This will be a great way to cool down and enjoy the summer.

I am really looking forward to this meeting. I look forward to being a 3-scooper and support my society! I watch Ken Kramer as often as I can, and will enjoy his presentation.
