The 2012 Heritage Preservation Award will be presented to Shirley Mitchell before the Tiburon Town Council on Wednesday, May 2 at 7 p.m. Prior to that, starting at 6 p.m., there will be a public reception in her honor in the Community Room.
Shirley is the author with Cathy Debs Epstein of “Both Sides of the Track”, a wonderful series of oral histories of Belvedere and Tiburon natives conducted in the 1970′s and published by the Landmarks Society in 1985. Last year Shirley completed the huge task of creating an index for the book, which will prove invaluable for researchers.
Please join us in celebrating Shirley’s great contribution to our understanding of Peninsula history.
