Fullerton College’s Centennial Team is recreating the very first day of classes at Fullerton College on the campus quad with “1913 Day,” featuring antique autos, actors representing the first students, teachers and 1913 dignitaries, three musical numbers from Ragtime, games, interactive scenes, and refreshments. There are disturbing reports that there may be demonstrations led by “outside agitators.”
The event will be held on Wednesday, Sep. 25, 3013, from 11 am to 1pm and from 5 pm to 7 pm, at 321 East Chapman Avenue, in Fullerton.
