Meet another 'living treasure'

The Living Treasures program will present Bill Harlan, director of the new Diablo Valley College campus in San Ramon, on Wednesday, Sept. 24, at the Danville Community Center, 420 Front St. A wine and cheese reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by the program from 7-9 p.m. with a question-and-answer period.

The presentation will highlight Harlan's great-great-grandfather who led a wagon train to California in 1846 just ahead of the ill-fated Donner Party and the adventures of the family in the early days of California. He will also talk about his contributions to Contra Costa County from 1964 to the present as the founder and director of the new college campus.

The program is sponsored by the Lesher Foundation and the Museum of the San Ramon Valley. Call the museum at 837-3750 for reservations.
