Riverbank News - - FRONT PAGE -

This month’s Mem­o­ries Day gath­er­ing of the River­bank His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety is sched­uled this week, com­ing up Thurs­day, May 12 at 11 a.m. at the mu­seum, 3237 Santa Fe.

“We’ve moved it to the sec­ond Thurs­day of each month,” So­ci­ety mem­ber Paulette Rober­son said of the Mem­o­ries Day con­tin­u­ing this spring.

This month, she added, lo­cal busi­ness owner Will Hecht of Escalon’s Heck of a Deal shop will present a pro­gram on pot­tery. An ex­pert on dishes, pot­tery, crys­tal and china, Hecht will fo­cus his River­bank pre­sen­ta­tion on pot­tery and those plan­ning to at­tend can bring in a fa­vorite dish for Hecht to try and iden­tify and pro­vide some in­for­ma­tion about for the owner.

“He’ll also bring in some of his pot­tery,” added Rober­son.

All are wel­come to at­tend the Thurs­day morn­ing pre­sen­ta­tion.

Also, plan to join the River­bank His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety this week­end, as it hosts its an­nual fundrais­ing

brunch. Al­ways set for the Sun­day af­ter Mother’s Day, this year the pop­u­lar fundrais­ing event has a new name. The so­ci­ety will host a “Farm to Ta­ble” brunch on Sun­day, May 15, at the River­bank Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, 3600 Santa Fe St., be­tween 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

It is hoped it will be con­ve­nient for church-go­ers to par­tic­i­pate. The menu will still fea­ture cus­tom made omelets, fresh fruit and muffins, and in­clude cof­fee and orange juice, with mi­mosas avail­able for an ad­di­tional $2 each. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for chil­dren. You can pur­chase them on the so­ci­ety’s web­site, www.river­bankhis­toric­mu­seum.com or in­side the mu­seum dur­ing reg­u­lar busi­ness hours.
