Hello Fellow Marinites and Nostalgia Lovers! I'll be giving a free public presentation in Greenbrae today at 1pm at the Bon Air Center (in the old Verizon store next to Orange Theory). If you're curious to see how our county has changed over the not so distant past and wish to relive some fun Marin memories from the '50s to the '80s, please stop by! There are other fun events happening starting at 11am until 2pm.User
Here's a look inside the Taqueria de Kentfield before they closed down for good a few years ago:
Here's a cool Kentfield Gardens ad that was just sent to me by Sydney Park, one of the organizers of the Marin Villages event I just gave a MarinNostalgia presentation to last Saturday. Anyone have a guess as to the year of this ad? Anyone out there used to own one of these original Kentfield Gardens homes? If you'd like to learn more about Marin Villages, a nonprofit that helps Marin seniors continue living in their own homes and lead an active, connected, and independent life, please visit https://marin.helpfulvillage.com/…/1003 4-marin-villages---a…User
Loud-mouthed rowdies or patriotic defenders of the Constitution, this new documentary unmasks Redwood High School's face-painted warriors of 1987, and answers the question: "Where are they now?"
(Okay, so it's really a spoof/promotion I recently made for The Class of '87's upcoming Thirty Year Reunion. If you went to Redwood during the '70s or '80s you may recognize a few former teachers. And if you didn't go to Redwood but still grew up during that time you may find this somewhat amusing.)User

Hurts to know someone who made us all laugh so hard and so often was overcome by depression. Please, if you are feeling that level of depression right now please tell someone today, even if it seems pointless. http://www.marinnostalgia.org/por…/robi n-williams-on-tunnel/User
