San Diego Legends exhibit to include Patchett

FALLBROOK – Each year, San Diego Legends are celebrated at different locations all around San Diego County. San Diego Legends is an annual recognition of San Diego Elders who lead by example. Their lives are a testament to the value of hard work, spiritual integrity, and commitment to others.

Fallbrook Library will host the Legends Exhibit from May 7 through June 24. An opening reception will be held Friday, May 13, at 6 p.m.

This year, Jerri Patchett of Fallbrook will be celebrated along with artist Mona Mills, Dr. Joaquin Anguera, Dr. Charles Ross, and Vickie Velasco. Deputy Director Susan Moore will be in attendance to present the portraits of the county's 2016 Legends.

Director Jose Apónte says of the reception, “We are celebrating our cultural community fabric, and our legends' individual health, longevity and common humanity."

The Legends demonstrate that people from all walks of life can, with a clear sense of mission and purpose, positively impact their neighbors, our region, and the world. This is an extraordinary opportunity to honor the elders in our community who have pioneered, changed, and molded the community to be the inclusive and exciting.
