I Remember When...

Everyone has great memories and these stories should be told, and we would like to capture as many of these stories as possible. Would you like to give a little bit of your time to make this happen? Your story can be as personal as you would like and about 300-600 words in length. We will be doing no editing. These are your words, your stories. We can receive your stories in two ways:
1. If you can type it in a Word document and send it to, that would be fine.
2. If you would like to mail the story to us, please send it to Del Mar Historical Society, 225 9th Street, Del Mar, California  92014.
If you would rather, we can put more photographs in and fewer words. Your choice. We are happy to find the photograph to go with your story but if you have one, all the better! All pictures will be returned to you.
We will not correct or verify facts because this is your story in your words. Hopefully you will not use this for a political soapbox but then again we would like to hear about some funny political stories. So enjoy our articles and recall some stories of your own to share.
