The amazing 3-Day Cancer Walk made it's way through La Jolla and Bird Rock today!

Participants brought their energy, passion, humor and fashion sense to the Breast Cancer 3-Day!
More than just 60 miles over a long weekend. Bird Rock merchants and residents helped celebrate by providing the walkers drinks, food, music and cheers from the sidelines. Signage that included positive affirmations and pink balloons lined La Jolla Blvd and Turquoise St. Supporters provided an inspiring tribute to those walking.

Bird Rock Historical Museum finds a home

Starting out as a history "project" seeking a temporary home has become a full-fledged museum with its own permanent residence. The new address for the soon-to-be community museum is a familiar one: Bird Rock Coffee Roasters at 5627 La Jolla Blvd. - more specifically, the organic coffee roaster's newsstand room, which owner Chuck Patton has offered for use as history museum/exhibit space.
News of Patton's offer of permanent exhibit space for a community museum was enthusiastically received by 37-year Bird Rock resident Philomene Offen, who just started documenting the La Jolla neighborhood's history in January.  Hopefully it will help trigger folks who have old photographs to be willing to share them with us," Patton said.
Residents who have old photographs of Bird Rock area are encouraged to share them long enough for copies to be made for display. For information or photo's to contribute please email Philomene Offen.
The new museum/exhibit space is planned to open by Thanksgiving.
