Recognition of Lorie Porter
August 2018: Lorie Porter, Director of the San Juan Capistrano Historical Walking Tour Guides and the Apolonia Montano (Montanez) Adobe Docents, met with the Blas Aguilar Adobe Foundation Board of Directors and as a result is being welcomed with opened arms. As said by Lorie, “For those of you who might not know, we have severed our relationship with the Historical Society and will now be a team with the Blas Aguilar Adobe Foundation Board of Directors. The city owns both adobes, and we are hoping that our new association will be beneficial for all of us.”
Capistrano Historical Alliance Committee congratulates Lorie, Walking Tour Guides, and Montanez Adobe Docents! New Adventures for a great group!
