LIVERMORE -- Livermore's HistoryMobile is ready to hit the road and will be dedicated Saturday, May 25 at 11 a.m. at the Livermore Railroad Depot, 22 S. "L" St.
The HistoryMobile is sponsored by the Livermore Heritage Guild and the Rotarian Foundation of Livermore
The public dedication ceremony will be attended by the mayor and all the volunteers who have worked on the project will be honored. A children's chorus will sing the official Livermore song, and refreshments will be served. There will be tours of the HistoryMobile after the ceremony.
For 20 years, Livermore children learned about their city's colorful history from the Historymobile, a museum-on-wheels operated by the Heritage Guild. Third-graders usually study local history each spring, and the Historymobile's rumbling arrival at schools was as routine as the daffodil bloom on Boot Hill.
The old motor home was retired, but Guild volunteers have been working on this replacement -- a shined up, painted and decorated donated 31-foot, used RV. Volunteers gutted the vehicle, and rebuilt it, rebuilding it with new wiring, walls, ceiling, floor and display cabinets.
