Concord Historical Society’s annual meeting offers a thought-provoking evening with presentations on Mt. Diablo in 1760 by Glenn Anaiscourt, and Concord Then and Now. The dinner meeting is at 6 pm March 16 at Oakhurst Country Club. Cost is $45 per person. Prepayment is required by March 10. Phone Louise Turrin 925/685-2497. Non-members are welcome.
