Mark Your Calendars for Memorial Day, May 25 at Pioneer Cemetery

January 30, 2015

The San Fernando Valley Historical Society will host a free Memorial Day Observance from 11:00 a.m. to Noon on Monday, May 25, 2015 at the historic San Fernando Pioneer Memorial Cemetery in Sylmar. The hometown, heart-felt tribute to our nation’s heroes will recognize all military branches, and will culminate with the All Veteran’s Burial Squad performing a rifle salute and "Taps" to honor those who’ve perished in the name of freedom. There will be historical displays about some of the cemetery's buried, including five Civil War veterans and prominent local citizens. For more information or to assist with the event, contact 818-970-1286.

April 23, 2015: The Wonderful World of Atlas Obscura

April 7, 2015

Join Obscura Society LA field agents Sandi Hemmerlien and Hadley Meares as they discuss the mission of Atlas Obscura during the historical society’s speaker meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, 2015. In an age where everything seems to have been explored and there is nothing new to be found, Atlas Obscura celebrates a different way of looking at the world. Through their country-wide Obscura Societies, they offer tours of fascinating, unique places. Sandi and Hadley will talk about some of their favorite spots in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. Sandi is a photographer, explorer and writer who runs the popular blog "Avoiding Regret." Hadley is a historical writer for KCET and Curbed LA and wrote a great online article about our own Pioneer Cemetery and conducted an Atlas Obsura event there last December.  You can check out their upcoming events at atlasobscura.com! This meeting is at New Life Church, corner of Chatsworth and Reseda, in Porter Ranch.  It is free and open to the public, although donations are gratefully accepted.  Free refreshments will be served after the program and there will be a free door prize drawing.
