OHA 2020 Annual meeting and presentation

We hope you’ll join us Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 6:30 for Oakland Heritage Alliance's Annual Meeting, to be held in the landmark American Bag Company building, 299 Third Street at Harrison. The meeting will be an easy half-hour gathering with official announcements and the election of members of our Board of Directors. Light refreshments will be served. There is no charge for the annual meeting and no reservation is required. If you cannot attend, please return your proxy ballot (mailed to members in December) to vote for new Board members.

The meeting will be immediately followed by a dramatic play-reading with Oakland poet and playwright Judith Offer. Scenes from the Life of Julia Morgan will feature opportunities for ten audience members to interpret characters from Morgan's Life. We request a $10 donation for the presentation, but no one will be turned away. Click to learn more and reserve your seat for Scenes From the Life of Julia Morgan.
