This month’s meeting will feature a presentation on how Bradford Street got its name, and how that ties in with some other street names in Bernal Heights. We’ll have a show-and-tell session as well, so please feel free to bring photos and stories to share.
We will meet on Thursday, February 18, at 6.15 p.m. at the Bernal branch library (500 Cortland at Anderson); please use the side gate on Anderson Street to access the downstairs meeting room. There will NOT be access through the library. As always, it is free and open to all.
