FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Newcomers, the community organization dedicated to welcoming and fostering friendship among Fallbrook residents, recently held a fun and informative Out and About event led by Newcomers member Keith Johnson. The popular Out and About activities are a great way to make new friends while exploring local museums, scenic locations and other attractions.
The San Diego Maritime Museum Tour took place Sept. 26 and included a boat tour of the San Diego Harbor with its stunning views. The Newcomers also enjoyed a delicious meal at the nearby Brigantine Restaurant.
The museum tour was led by knowledgeable docents who provided richly detailed facts and stories about the history of the Maritime Museum’s vessels including the Star of India, HMS Surprise, San Salvador, the 1898 Victorian-era steam ferryboat Berkeley and the 1904 Medea. The below deck tours and exhibits also provided valuable insight into how historical ships operated and the experiences of their crews and passengers.
The Out and About events provide well planned enriching activities each month. In a show of appreciation, Newcomer Carolyn S. commented “Thank you so much Keith for organizing and planning our Maritime Museum tour! We could not have had a more perfect day from morning till night. Beautiful weather, wonderful docents, great dinner and fabulous friends to enjoy it all with.”
Social meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at Christ the King Church at 10 a.m. The upcoming Oct. 12 meeting will feature Tom Harrington from the local fire department along with Carl Sencenich, chair of the CERT Board of Directors and Mike Crain, CERT Public Information Officer. They will give a presentation on CPR and the use of the AED (Automated External Defibrillator).
