December Members Share
Saturday, December 17
December Members Share  (Monthly Meetings)
9:30 am to 12:00 pm
First Presbyterian Church, State and Constance
SBCGS welcomes members and the community to the December Members Share Meeting on Saturday, December 17, 2016, at the First Presbyterian Church, State and Constance. Special Interest Groups meet at 9:30 a.m. The short monthly meeting starts at 10:30 and the featured speakers begin their talks at 11 a.m. You do not need to be a member to come!
SBCGS looks forward each year to the December “members share.” This year, the program will feature three SBCGS members: Barbara Hodgden, Connie Burns, and Betsy Green. After a year of intense research and writing, Barbara's children will be receiving a combination photography/genealogy book for Christmas this year. It is that book that she plans to share through a new slideshow and a small sampling of the 27 stories in the book. Connie's presentation is called "The Lake that Grandpa Built — or how I used Google to fill in the gaps about my elusive, enterprising, and entrepreneurial grandfather and his vision.” Many viewers will recognize and remember the results of his activities. Betsy's presentation will focus on her new book, MESApedia, which is the first comprehensive history of Santa Barbara’s Mesa neighborhood, containing more than 400 entries and images, portraying life on the Mesa in the 1800s.
Members are invited to bring some goodies to the meeting to share with everyone. A small plate of a favorite holiday treat, either home made or “store bought,” would be enjoyed by all. If members would like to share their recipe, they can write it on a card and bring it with their treat. Extra cards will be  available so others can copy the recipes.
