New Officers Installed

Dr. Glenn R. Stewart, Professor Emeritus - Cal Poly Pomona

The annual Installation Dinner was held Sunday, March 29th at the First Congregational Church Fellowship Hall. Salmon appetizers followed by Pork Loin and Breaded Chicken provided by Quinn Hawley and his Perris High School Interact students were a big hit. Special kudos to Joyce Kerns for her leadership and her fabulous pork and chicken recipes.

Everyone was entertained by guest speaker, Dr. Glenn R. Stewart, Professor Emeritus - Cal Poly Pomona and grandson of Wilbert W. Stewart, owner of the Bank of Perris. He spoke of his family's migration to Perris and the history of the Bank of Perris. With the old bank building up next on the city's redevelopment plan and slated to be our new Archival Library, it was of special interest to all present. Everyone found the Stewart’s unconventional security measures fascinating. Why would customers stand sideways to the teller windows? That information and much more will definitely be kept in the archives of our historical association.

The association thanks Ralph Keyes for letting us borrow his collection of antique collectable banks. They were a new and unique spin on table centerpieces and everyone had a lot of fun figuring out how they worked.
