Photographs provide us with memories of the past. Thanks to the efforts of library staff and volunteers, our community has the opportunity this Thursday, June 16th to view a new photography exhibit at the Chula Vista Heritage Museum titled Glimpses of History: Celebrating 100 years of Chula Vista.

Today’s 100 Centennial seconds focuses on Third Avenue, and before I go any further, let’s take a quick look at a video produced by Channel 4 in 2010 featuring Chula Vista librarian Donna Golden.

On Saturday July 9th, the Third Avenue Village Association (TAVA) invites families and friends to join the first annual Village Hunt from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event starts and finishes at Memorial Park. Participants will receive a Hunt Packet, race number bib, an official Village Hunt T-Shirt, and are invited to partake in an after party and awards ceremony.
