In Honor of Dave Moss Sr.

With heavy hearts, LHS is sad to have lost Dave Moss Sr. May 11, 2019. Dave Moss Sr. was a resident of Lakeside since around 1967.
In memory of Dave, we rang the bell five times - paused - rang one time - paused and rang one more time during his son Dave Moss Jr’s Sherriff presentation on Saturday May 18, 2019. The bell echoed throughout Lakeside for Dave Sr.
The Moss family is invited to come and ring the old church bell every year in his honor on May 11th. Dave Moss Sr. was in the newspaper as runner up in the "Horse around in Lakeside" bumper sticker contest back in November 1976. Next time you see a Horse around in Lakeside bumper sticker, think of him knowing he was involved in our little town, his clever second place slogan was “Lakeside Is The Countryside”. He was always proud of being involved in the community.
We are also proud of Dave Moss Jr's accomplishments in the county. As a boy, Dave grew up going to our schools in the Lakeside, he eventually went on to become the Commander in the San Diego Sheriff's department.
Dave Jr's old friend Rob Harding and current LHS VP spoke in place of Dave Jr. and kept everything going to honor the Moss family, history and community involvement, filling the guest speaker spot on the history of the SD Sheriff's department. It was nice to have Lieutenant Fran Passalacqua from the Lakeside substation representing Commander Dave Moss for the sheriff's department. Thank you, Lieutenant Passalacqua. It was a somber day but we carried on like Dave Jr. would have wanted us too. Dave Moss Sr's memorial will be July 3rd at 1130 AM at the Miramar National Cemetery. We cannot give the Moss family enough prayers as their hearts are very heavy at this time. "Hoping to comfort them in some way" Is a quote from Rob Harding during the ringing of the bell when we held a moment of silence in honor Daves dad.
RIP Dave Moss Sr.

Did you know that Lakeside used to be a tourist attraction, so much so that a railroad was built to bring people in! Gary Mitrovich with the Lakeside Historical Society shares some interesting history with Kyle Whissel about Lakeside History, including the railroad, the old candy shop, and the Lakeside Inn.

GEORGE MILLER BELLS

Lakeside Historical Society Presents;
Imagine picking up some flour and coffee at the Lakeside Store at the corner of Maine Avenue and Lakeshore drive in 1904. Then hearing George Millers Bells ringing loudly on his lead horse, warning everyone in town to move over, while thousands of pounds of freight rolls past ya heading for Julian. That was a familiar sound back then and it will be a lost familiar sound coming back to life this weekend! The Historic Julian county highway is our Maine Avenue and later becoming highway 67. Come and relive this once in a lifetime event on April 27th at 930 AM at the Western day's parade and hear the horses trot with the original safety device again displaying their warning sound from over 100 years ago. Special thanks to Tom Isom for loaning the Bells, Sioux Munyon Swart with her team of horses and wagon and Turtle Rock Ridge Winery of Ramona CA for supplying the barrels to load the wagon, AND,,, Rob Harding aka Dusty Rhodes for making it all happen.

We want to thank RD Reed Trucking for their generous donation to Lakeside’s Historical Society! RD Reed is giving their time and truck to transport Joe Foster's old 1913 Mack Auto Stage from Julian Pioneer Museum to Lakeside for the Lakeside Western Days Parade on April 27th, 2019. Come watch it drive down to Maine Avenue with Lakeside’s first lady Edna Kouns ! Thank you Brian Stuetel from Julian Historical Society for donating a whole day to operate this fine machine, he really wanted Edna to ride with him as he said “she is the same age as my car” Edna will be 105 this June, talk about History being made again in our town. Thank you also to the Board members of Julian Historical Society for allowing it to be in our parade. As LHS Vice President Rob Harding says, “it’s actually a Lakeside vehicle from Lakeside (for real) it has traveled on Maine avenue before transporting passengers from about 1917 to 1925 from Lakeside to Julian.

LAKESIDE HISTORY TODAY

Lakeside Historical Society brings our history alive. LHS is run by volunteers willing to give of their time to the preserving the past and present history of our town of Lakeside CA
All our volunteers are amazing. Today Rob Harding, aka, Dusty Rhodes presented gifts to the Lakeside Union School District school bus transportation department.
Here is Dusty's statement:
"The Lakeside School Bus Transportation Building got a cool surprise today from LHS !!! They received 3 giant 22 x 48 prints of the first “covered" school bus from a 1930 photo courtesy of Tom Isom family photos. And a picture of the first school bus courtesy of Lakeside Historical Society Archive photos. The third picture is a close-up view of the Isom family photo to see the grammar school logo clearly. The open style bus was with Wellington Hoover and kids at the Lakeview school pre-1923 (the 1920s). The closed bus was taken with George Miller, Marion Miller, Wallace Phillips, Earlene Parker and H.S. Kibbey in front of the current Marys donut shop on Maine Avenue in 1930. Tim Armstrong of Diesel Printing (a Lakeside small business) donated all his labor to the project enlarging the prints. Then Tommy Coble donated the labor to build the new 3D type outer edge frameless displays and hangers. Dusty Rhodes donated the kiln dried wood for Tommy. Then all the district bus drivers donated their time to do a group picture at the yard! Superintendent Andy Johnson arrived with Maintenance director Todd Owens to make it official to put this picture in the history books to keep in Lakeside forever. We love this town !!! Let's not forget Billy Ortiz who donated his time for the article, photos and edit of video to put in our digital archives. We really missed Tom Isom this morning but we talked to him on the phone during picture shoot and he was glad we were enjoying the moment. (Grandson of Geroge Miller who we did the bells presentation on who is in covered bus photo) Let's keep our history going Lakeside !!!

We had a wonderful dinner served, almost 80 were in attendance for pot pie and a great talk by Rob Harding aka Dusty Rhodes on Facebook.
His focus was on Beatrice Ramirez Head's father Baldomero Ramirez and the water from the Cuyamacas brought down in a flume and a dam the Baldomero controlled on the San Diego River. If you missed it, be looking for a video later this week.
Thank you as always to all the wonderful volunteers that make our events successful.

Beatrice Ramirez Head will be our Guest Speaker at next general meeting on February 25th. Our VP Rob Harding shares this about Bea, a very special and personal friend of his: "I want to make this night a 'once in a lifetime' night for her. I want her to be so proud after she learns about an undiscovered area of her Daddy's life. She will learn about the huge flume system that she was involved in as a girl. Her family made everyone's life comfortable and prosperous down the line. Her dad had to be a smart man to be chosen for the job and hold it for so many years. A quiet man that didn't get much recognition until now. Bea will tell you first hand accounts of what it was like and how wonderful her memories are of growing up as the Dam Keeper's Daughter. This night is for Beatrice -let's all celebrate it with her. With love for Bea! ❤️"

Nice little video on Lakeside!

Lakeside is a quaint suburb area of Eastern San Diego, named after Lindo Lake which is located near the town's center. It's charming small town vibes are appealing to those seeking space from more densely populated areas in San Diego. You know you are in Lakeside when you have to stop to allow a horse or geese cross the road!
