By Vice P Rob Harding
Lakeview school means a lot to Lakeside. And the older 1890s schoolhouse across the street does also….But not as much as seeing the youth of Lakeside get involved with our Historical Society !! The picture presented actually has a 2007 project from Living History days in it . Then it has the 2 youngest Life members of our organization - that both are Lakeview alumni. To be able to have this proudly in the office we hope it is infectious and more of the younger Lakeside kids will be involved in the community.

125 years ago today: The first service was held in the Lakeside Community Church on February 9, 1896. Here is one of the earliest photos of the old church. Note the absence of the manse (built in 1911) and the social hall (1914). Pastor George C. Butterfield led parishioners in the initial service. The building was officially dedicated the following March 29th. It still stands as the home of the Lakeside Historical Society and one of the oldest buildings in our historic downtown.

Local history quiz: Can anyone name this house and/or the family to whom it belonged? It's an unused postcard without a date or summary, but there is some writing on the back: "A picture of my house ... (three illegible words - one could be Brown?) Lakeside Calif - my daughter at corner of house." Per "Legends of Lakeside," we had a Brown family living in Lakeside Farms from 1918 to 1957. Any ideas?

We were asked today if we had any info about the dairy, name on the bottle. LHS has a dairy book that documents all the dairies in Lakeside. Our LHS Dairy committee to date has documented 115 dairies in Lakeside. Billy Ortiz will be taking on the challenge of visiting all the former dairy sites, we have a pretty good map of where they all were so stay tuned for some fun videos.

The 70th anniversary of Lindo Park School was held on April 25th 2019.
"On April 25th, 1949, Lindo Park School was dedicated and open to the public. The cost of the new school was $139,000, and Sam M. Harnill was the school architect. The school originally consisted of a kindergarten, six classrooms, and an office, however, the master plan called for expanding to two kindergarten classes, 12 additional classrooms, a cafeteria/auditorium. The expansion was completed in 1952."

ANNOUNCEMENT: To piggyback on Billy's earlier post, the Board of Directors of the Lakeside Historical Society met this morning and decided to cancel our March events. This includes the Volunteer Lunch on 3/21 and the General Meeting on 3/23. Bobbie Pogue's family has decided to postpone her memorial which was scheduled for 3/15. We are also closing the Gift Shop and the Wednesday Archives Workshop for the remainder of March. My Co-President, Diane Angus, and I will meet at the end of March to evaluate the situation and make future decisions. The Board made these decisions to protect our membership as well as the public. If you have any questions, you can get hold of us here on Facebook or leave us a message at (619)561-1886. Thanks for your patience and understanding. --Gary Mitrovich, Co-President

In the photo is Lyle Isom, a banjo player for the San Miguel Hillbillys . The group is standing at the old rodeo grounds (originally located at Channel Rd.).

October 28, 2020: 8 AM - 2 PM Covid Testing AND flu shots...Lakeside Library or the nearby parking lot.
A lot of the equestrian entries in the Mother Goose Parade are from Lakeside. These slides offered on Ebay (not by me) show a pair of matching Silver Riders. I didn't start riding in the parade until the 70's so I don't recognize them.
Thanks for providing the polling place!
***Claudia May Gillespie Hall-Campbell-Taylor*** On Saturday, December 21, 2019, The "Meanest Mom in Lakeside" passed away. It was a title that her kids gave her and that she held with pride. Claudia was born in Los Angeles on July 31, 1927, and was raised as an only child. She married our dad, Wyatt W. Hall in 1946. After the typical travels of a Navy family, in 1951 they settled in Lakeside to raise us five precious kids. In her final years, she frequently reminisced about much she loved living and raising kids in Lakeside. This makes sense since like a CIA Spy Master she kept a bevy of spies throughout the Lakeside community, normal-looking people, moms, teachers and shop keepers who were always on the lookout for any Hall kid who was misbehaving. It was from this circle of informants that allowed her to know before we got home what we were guilty of and to have a suitable punishment ready (remember, we said she was mean!). Since daddy was often out to sea, she knew that she didn't have the "wait-until-your-dad-gets-home" option of discipline. She was preceded in death by three husbands, our dad, Wyatt Hall in 1973. Later, she married Gordon Campbell who again left her a widow. Then many years later to John Taylor who admitted to being a little nervous about being #3 and swore to not eat any mushrooms that she served him. After John passed (not from mushroom poisoning) we pled with her not to marry again, citing the simple fact that there was not enough room on the headstone. With the full name of Claudia May Gillespie Hall-Campbell-Taylor that would probably require an extra headstone. As if raising us five delightful kids wasn't enough of a life accomplishment, she went back to college after dad's death and completed her AA degree at Grossmont College. She was a life-long learner, a voracious reader, and an avid traveler, going to Europe eleven times and making a complete trip around the world on her own. She was very active in the Lakeside Farms PTA, the Los Angeles High School Alumni Association, and at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish where she taught CCD and was one of the first Lay Eucharistic Ministers at OLPH and later was active at St. John the Evangelist in Encinitas. Her son Wyatt W (El Cap 1965). and step-son Richard (from dad's first marriage) preceded her in death. Her other children include Cathie Kenefick of Satsuma Fl., Steve Hall of Lakeside, Kevin Hall of Carlsbad, and Ellen Hall of Tombstone Az. In addition, (not counting her second & third husband's kids), she has twelve grandkids, thirteen great-grandkids, and four great-great-grandkids. Having been born and raised as an only child, her greatest desire was to have a large family. In her later years, she would just marvel at the size of our family and it brought her great joy. So, the mantle of "Meanest Mom in Lakeside" is back up for grabs. We will be having a viewing on Friday, January 10, 2020, from 3:00-4:00 at El Camino Mortuary at 340 Melrose Avenue, Encinitas. Her funeral mass will be held at the Holy Cross Cemetery Chapel on Saturday, January 11, 2020. The Rosary will begin at 11:00 with mass to follow. The burial will be directly after mass when she'll be laid to rest beside our dad. 4470 Hilltop Drive, San Diego 92102

My son found Treasure in the crawl space under our house. It looks like it’s been there for many years. Two old tool boxes with tools, an old beer can, First aid kit, and an almost new looking Maniscalco’s Cactis Ranch pencil. (Lakeside Historical Society has the old Maniscalco‘s sign displayed inside)
We still have seats left for both tours! Come explore east county's history with us!
We still have seats left for tomorrow's great program from Sam Webb. No membership required to learn about Alpine history!
The latest newsletter has a photo of an ashtray from Al's Mobile & Garage Service. Al and Lorraine Minchow were good friends of my parents. At the gas station they had a cooler outside full of ice with bottles of pop. That's what I remember most.
My dad Bob Henderson was organist choirmaster and taught piano lessons in the church in the 1950s when Reverend Roberts was there. Does anyone remember him or have any photos of the organ from then? I know he taught a family named Christie. My sisters and I grew up on the hill overlooking the Castle. One sister still lives in San Diego. We are so happy to see what you have done with the church! Below is myself at Lindo Lake 1956, and at our home at Castle Court Dr. 1956 and 1961.

Our Guest Speaker at next general meeting ; Heartfelt write... 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 a undiscovered area of her Daddy's living. She will learn about the huge system that she was involved in as a girl. Her family made everyones life comfortable and prosperous down the line. He 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. Then she will tell first hand accounts, of what it was like, and how wonderful her memories were growing up as the Dam Keepers Daughter. This night is for Beatrice lets all celebrate it with her. With love for Bea ❤️
