Luncheon Conversations with Historic Women of SLO County
June 28 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This spring and summer, join us in the lush gardens of the Dallidet Adobe for a series of luncheon conversations with historic women of San Luis Obispo County.
Our June luncheon features the story of Jeanette ‘Nettie’ Sinsheimer.
Jeanette ‘Nettie’ Weil Sinsheimer indefatigably led San Luis civic life in the early twentieth century. She convinced Andrew Carnegie to donate $10,000 to build the city’s first freestanding public library, now the home of the History Center Museum. In 1915, Nettie was the local chair of the women’s board for the Panama Pacific International Exposition—San Luis Obispo County’s chapter raised more funds than any group outside the Bay Area! She and her daughters were also instrumental in organizing our local Red Cross.
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKERS: Anne Sinsheimer and Carol Sinsheimer.
Includes a delectable lunch provided by Del Monte Cafe.
Street parking only. Please do not park in the adjacent lot at the end of Pacific Street. You will be towed!
