California Writers Club celebrates 100th Anniversary
on November 9, 2009
There’s nothing like a beautiful Saturday to remind you of all the yardwork that remains to be done before the winter rains return in a few weeks. So this past Saturday, members of the California Writers Club, along with Councilmember Jean Quan and other city employees, gathered to celebrate the CWC’s 100th anniversary—and begin the groundwork for a new walkway around the Abbey, Oakland poet Joaquin Miller’s historical home. The two-year project, which will include building the handicap-accessible walkway and a new bridge and reinstalling a creek that was by the house in Miller’s day, is expected to cost nearly $70,000 to complete.
