College Area residents shared vintage photos, memorabilia, documents and personal stories with local historians on Saturday, May 9 at the Blessed Sacrament Church on El Cerrito Drive. Scanned copies and recorded oral histories will be archived at San Diego State University; ensuring priceless memories will be preserved for future generations.

The event was sponsored by the College Neighborhoods Foundation History Project and hosted by the El Cerrito Community Council. Participating communities included Alvarado Estates, College View Estates, Mohawk-Saranac, El Cerrito, Rolando, Rolando Park, Redwood Village, and Oak Park.
