  1. I am thrilled to read this article because of a name held within it.

    When my eyes are open and my brain awake, I will get back to you. I thought all QUIMBY's were deceased some years ago.

    Cinderella Play at Chula Vista HIgh School turned out well. No costume fell off no body ripped a garment or fell and injured themselves.

    It was a really great evening for the youths.

  2. I live on property my grandfather bought from his mother.I'm no relation to families that lived here before us but the history fascinates me.
