Relive the 1940’s to the 1970’s with Jay Topping, who will offer a lively presentation on Scotts Valley in the days of Santa’s Village, Lost World, and Hocus Pocus, the TV clown remembered by thousands of kids.
Jay Topping is the historian of the Scotts Valley Historical Society. As the Ambassador at the Chamber of Commerce he is very active in promoting Scotts Valley’s rich 160-year history.
According to Library Director Susan Nemitz, “History matters. History is all around us. It connects us with sense of place, shared experience, and shared culture. Making local history accessible to the community is one of the most important ways libraries can connect people with each other and the world.”
