Museum drama on Pleasanton's advance from its rowdy days to modern times on tap tonight

'From Brothels & Bar Rooms to the City of Planned Progress' takes a look at changes in community

The Museum On Main's Ed Kinney Lecture Series will present "From Brothels & Bar Rooms to the City of Planned Progress" at 7 p.m. tonight, starring long-time residents Gene Pons and Phil Henry.

The dramatic review of the rip-roaring days of Pleasanton will be performed at Lynnewood United Methodist Church, 4444 Black Ave.

Pons and Henry will cover the changing community including the times of wild saloons, prohibition and bootlegging to the time of the city's modern day growth.

Admission is $5 for members of the Museum On Main and for seniors, $10 for non-members, and $3 for students and teachers with ID. No reservations are necessary and tickets can be purchased at the door. For more information, call the museum at 462-2766.

I'm sorry that I missed this presentation but the travel time would be to long (Germany).

Greetings to my friends
Phil and Gene
