Meet old-timers at Museum

Stop by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. tomorrow and find out what it was like to grow up in the area 80 years ago from Ed and Elaine Moura Donahue, who are both from farming families in the Valley. Ed attended the Green Valley one room school house and graduated from San Ramon Valley High School in 1939. His family's farm was Whitegate where it grew hay and raised cattle and sheep. Elaine graduated from San Ramon Valley High School in 1945; her family owned a dairy on Livorna Road in Alamo.

The Museum's current exhibit, "Agriculture, For a Century, the Business of the Valle," highlights the period of 1850 through 1950, when agriculture was the cornerstone of the Valley's economy. The Museum is located at 205 Railroad Ave., Danville. Call 837-3750.
