Alpine Historical Society’s Annual Italian Feast on October 21st

Back by popular demand, Journalist Jack Innis

Mark your calendar today for the annual Italian Feast to be held on Sunday, October 21, at 5:00 pm. at the Alpine Woman’s Club, 2156 Alpine Boulevard. Dinner will include a choice of pasta dishes, salad, rolls and drinks and the dessert. The cost of the event is $10 for adults and $5 for children.

Back by popular demand, Jack Innis, our speaker is an award-winning local journalist who has made an extensive study of the wonderful, and often quirky, history of San Diego. A long-time surfer, fisherman and boating enthusiast, he is the local media relations representative of the International Game Fish Association. Formerly editor of the San Diego Log, Mr. Innis is a freelance editor and writer who lives in San Diego with his wife and daughter. His interest  in writing the book, San Diego Legends, began when he came across the story of a man hanged for petty thievery—after all, as Innis writes, “few cities may lay claim to hanging a man for stealing a rowboat, but San Diego can.” The story of James “Yankee Jim” Robinson, who was hanged in Old Town on Sept. 18, 1852, after a jury trial that included two of the boat’s co-owners, is just one of the many quirky tales that fill this fascinating book.

This evening, in honor of Halloween, Mr. Innis, will be telling weird and exciting San Diego County ghost stories.  He promises us a delightfully scary and fun filled presentation.

The Italian Feast is one of the major fundraisers for the Alpine Historical Society and is always enjoyed by all who attend.

Please RSVP to Carol Morrison at 619-445-2544 or e-mail at  info@alpinehistory.org if you plan to attend this worthwhile event. Come at 5:00 pm for the dinner or at 6:00 pm for just the speaker. The Italian Feast dinner is sponsored by Viejas.

Our museum at 2116 Tavern Road is open the last Saturday and Sunday of each month from 2 – 4 pm or by appointment.  Group tours are available. No charge.

    it’s about time we have other nationalities recognized. From past years you would think there were only one or two nationalities that existed in San Diego.

    The small coal mining neighborhood I was born and raised in southwestern Pennsylvania, we had the Irish, Italians, Polish, German, Croatian, Slovak, Ukrainian and some I may have forgotten. And what was so remarkable about all these different nationalities–we all got along.

    So I’m glad to see Alpine is having an Italian Feast.
    Perhaps, October would also be a great month for a German Feast.

    Take pride in your nationality.
