     The Temecula Valley Historical Society would like to invite the public to a very special gathering on Monday, June 27 at the Little Temecula History Center. Following a social time with refreshments beginning at 5:30 pm we will introduce the four students chosen to receive college scholarships to assist them in pursuing careers in history. The society endeavors to foster upcoming young people to perpetuate the work done by the researchers, authors, dramatists and others in this generation. Following the introductions of the awardees there will be an opportunity for a preview tour of the Vail Headquarters or to stay at the history center to enjoy a brief program by Nadia Riley a classically trained violinist.
