4th Annual Archives Month

Roaring San Diego

Roaring San Diego

Fourth Annual “Archives Month” will commence on Tuesday, October 4th at 10:00 AM in the Lobby of the City Administration Building, everyone is welcome to participate in the opening ceremony! Each October, the Office of the City Clerk provides a month-long calendar of events for all to enjoy. This year we will host educational lectures, exhibit, and City archive tours about this year’s theme, the “Roaring 20s.” We will highlight some of the advantages and challenge’s citizens encountered, and how they were impacted during that era, with our wide array of distinguished speakers.

We hope to see many of you there as we explore, celebrate, and learn from our City’s rich history.
