Open house on Sept. 18 hosted by Indian Resource Center

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.

The Southern California American Indian Resource Center (SCAIR) will host an open house from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at its new location, 239 E. Main St. in El Cajon. During the holiday season, SCAIR provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to tribal participants and their families. SCAIR is currently accepting donations, including checks, gift cards and toys, to help ensure that families enjoy and celebrate the holidays. For more information, call (619) 328-0676, or e-mail,
