Rotary agenda includes ghost town and Turkey Trot

FALLBROOK – At the September meeting of Fallbrook Village Rotary, the guest speaker was Robert Peek, a ranger for California State Parks. He spoke about Bodie State Park which is east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and was once the largest gold and silver mining town in the western U.S. (1879 to 1905).

Bodie became a State Historic Park in 1962 and is now considered a “Ghost Town” where visitors can tour the old stamp mill and take photos of historic buildings, old cars, farm wagons, etc. The annual Bodie Day is an enactment of how it was in 1879.

Rotary members also discussed their upcoming fundraiser. All are invited to join them in helping the community and getting healthy at their annual Turkey Trot event at the Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens. Participants can spend Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 23, with family and friends strolling, walking or running for local community charities.

The event will benefit Fallbrook Land Conservancy, Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary and Fallbrook Village Rotary Club Foundation.

The registration fee is only $30 per person until Sept. 30; then it will be $35 until Nov. 11, $40 until Nov. 22 and $45 on the day of the event. For tickets, go to
