Big Bear Lake, CA, July 22, 2010, 1:39pm – A traditional Old Miner’s celebration continues this weekend marking the 11th anniversary of the History Alive! Chautauqua programs presented by the Friends of the Library. As in the past, a historical character will be featured and acted out so the audience can get to know the character portrayed. This year, the highlight will be on Charles Fletcher Lummis, journalist, Indian activist, historian, photographer, poet and librarian. He will be acted out by Dr. Daniel K. Lewis of Cal Poly Pomona, a San Bernardino native who has presented dozens of Chautauqua programs locally and nationally. History Alive! Chautauqua will be held this Saturday, July 24th beginning at 7pm at the Summit Christian Fellowship Church at 41930 Garstin Drive in Big Bear Lake. A reception will follow at the Big Bear Library. The event is free.
