Landmark Day in Glen Canyon

Forwarded from Evelyn Rose of the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project:

I’m very excited to share that the construction of the concrete footer for the plaque for California Historical Landmark No. 1002 is now being built! This structure will hold the plaque commemorating the first dynamite factory in the United States – Giant Powder Company – that was personally licensed by inventor Alfred Nobel. It is Glen Park’s link to the prestigious Nobel Prizes. You can read more about the site here.

The grand dedication ceremony is being held at the Rec Center on Saturday, April 21, 2018. We’ll begin at 1 p.m. in the auditorium of the Rec Center. The dedication will be performed by the Native Sons of the Golden West around 2 p.m. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy cake and refreshments behind the Rec Center.
