Grossmont College sets meeting for adults returning to school

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Grossmont College’s Adult Reentry Program will host “Your Passport to the Future,” a free informational meeting from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at Griffin Gate on campus. The meeting is designed to assist adults interested in returning to school after a length of time to complete a degree or certificate, or to upgrade their skills for a new job or career. Speakers at the meeting will include former students who successfully returned to the classroom, along with information on admission procedures, transfer programs and financial aid. Reservations are not required. Grossmont College is located at 8800 Grossmont College Dr., in El Cajon.
