The Society's Monthly Program Schedule
The next presentation will be on Monday February 27 at 6:00 p.m.
Our presentations are held indoors at the Little Temecula History Center, which is the "red barn" next to Kohl's, one block south of Temecula Parkway at the intersection of Margarita. They are free and open to the public.
Lori Van Arsdale, formerly the mayor of Hemet, will speak to the Temecula Valley Historical Society about the Ramona Pageant and the upcoming centennial celebration of the longest-running outdoor play in California history. Van Arsdale, also a member of the Ramona Pageant Board of Directors, will share the history of the pageant that is closely related to Temecula history. Helen Hunt Jackson, the author of the book "Ramona" the pageant is based upon, visited Louis and Ramona Wolf at the Wolf Ranch that is now Vail HQ, just a few feet away from the Little Temecula History Center where Van Arsdale will be speaking. Jackson penned the novel "Ramona" shortly after her visit to Temecula and included several people and locations recognizable in the Temecula area.
