Annual awards ceremony celebrates contributions to Fallbrook

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Historical Society will once again honor two members and a local business during its annual Awards Ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Reche Schoolhouse, 1319 S Live Oak Park Road.

“For the past two years, we have been unable to publicly award these very special honors, due to the COVID pandemic,’” said FHS President Roy Moosa. “We’re excited to resume this event, which is one of the most important celebrations for the historical society.”

Each year, FHS selects a member, pioneer and business for outstanding contributions to the organization and the community at large.

The ceremony will begin with a social mixer, followed by the announcement of winners and presentation of the awards. Following will be a ribbon cutting for the new walking trail and tours of the schoolhouse and the historic grounds upon which it sits.

The Reche Schoolhouse is one of the treasures of the historical society. The original one-room structure was built in 1886 on land donated by Vital Reche, one of the first settlers to arrive in the area of Fallbrook now known as Live Oak Canyon. The schoolhouse was destroyed by fire in 1896, but construction of the current schoolhouse began soon after. The school operated until 1939.

The event is open to the public.
