Farmer's daughters come to museum

The Museum of the San Ramon Valley tomorrow will host the Kamp sisters - Lois Kamp Compertz, Doris Kamp Morgan and Shirley Kamp Gelreth - whose father farmed in Sycamore Valley and owned the Kamp Dairy on Blackhawk Road. Their Grandfather Thourp was the Valley's long-time boot maker.

The Museum's current exhibit, "Agriculture for a Century: The Business of the Valley," highlights the period of 1850 through 1950 when agriculture was the cornerstone of the economy. It runs through May 10.
