Ramona author and historian Richard L. Carrico will present slides and stories from his book “Images of America: Ramona, California” at the San Vicente Valley Club’s luncheon meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 29.

Who were the first inhabitants of Ramona Valley thousands of years ago? Why was the town first called Nuevo? Was there really a nationally-ranked drag strip at the Ramona Airport? Who was Ramona’s famous female author of best-selling children’s books?

Carrico will answer these questions, with a slide presentation focusing on images and stories from his book. Autographed copies of the book will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Guy B. Woodward Museum.Carrico said the book is a collaborative effort between the Guy B. Woodward Museum and him.
