Caspar Community Meeting: September 2000

Caspar Annual Meeting Scans History

Caspar Bridge and Store Building 1966

The Caspar Community's Annual Meeting, on Sunday, September 10th at 3PM at the Mendocino Coast Jewish Community Center, will feature a showing of historical photographs of Caspar. Organizer Patty Madigan explains, "We hope many long-time residents of the area will come and share their photographs and recollections." The Mendocino Coast Jewish Community Center, also known as the Shul, is located west of Caspar Schoolhouse in downtown Caspar, and all are invited to the meeting.

The Caspar Community has had a very successful year, and is beginning to formulate plans for the next phases of their work. Purchase of the headlands and riparian, long considered the village's "most sacred space",has been fully funded and will be completed this autumn. County-sponsored restoration of the system of pathways along the main streets of Caspar will improve the town's livability for its increasing number of walking residents. The neighbors have worked together brilliantly to achieve these goals, and Caspar is thriving. Caspar's renaissance has spawned a number of new community groups, including the Caspar Grange, Coast Farmers, Caspar Community Sponsored Agriculture program, and several others. "But the formal part of the meeting will be very short," according to Community President Mike Dell'Ara. "I'm looking forward to a neighborly exchange of stories and images as the main event."

Judy Tarbell and Michael Potts will bring computerized scanners to the meeting in order to copy the images, to add to the electronic scrapbook of Caspar's history being assembled at the Caspar website. "We have excellent images from Caspar's early history, published in Ted Wurm's excellent book 'Mallets on the Mendocino Coast', and a good collection from the last few years, but there's a big gap, from 1940 to 1995," explains Caspar webster Michael Potts. "We're hoping that lots of folks will come to the meeting bringing pictures and stories. Already we've gotten excellent new images of the old highway bridge across the log pond at Caspar Creek and the new bridge under construction." The new images can be found at the village website.
