SAN LORENZO -- A movie documenting the origins and rise of San Lorenzo will be screened Friday night at the San Lorenzo Village Homes Association.
The hourlong movie was produced by the David D. Bohannon Organization, a company that owns 19 acres in the unincorporated community today and is run by the family of the area's original developer.
The film will highlight the beginnings of the San Lorenzo Village community, events through the years and the razing of one of the last San Lorenzo barns. The movie starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed by an hourlong presentation by historian Doris Marciel. A second showing will be offered at 8:30 p.m.
Seating for each event is limited to the first 200 people. Free tickets will be handed out at the door.
Free popcorn will be provided and the Sweet and Mellow food truck will be in the parking lot from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. selling coffee, tea and pastries.
The event, described as a casual gala by organizers, will be held at 377 Paseo Grande next to the library.
Children should be accompanied by an adult. Local fire officials, police, business owners, founding families, homes association board members and county representatives are expected to attend.
