These boys drove all the way down from the dusty roads of Nevada in their ‘73 Cadillac rodeo rig for our small-town rodeo. They parked their one-horse trailer up at the rodeo grounds and decided to come on down to the parade and say hi to all the nice folks. Hi, Y'all!



#39  Visiting Angels, Senior Home Care
2 people Our next entry is Visiting Angels Senior Home Care, located here in Livermore. Rotarian Keith Beck is driving a restored 1966 Ford Stepside pick-up that he has worked on since 2009. This was Keith's father's farm truck, used to haul hay, hogs and other livestock on his ranch in Texas.

#41  Livermore History Mobile LHG
From the Livermore Heritage Guild we have several entries.

The HistoryMobile murals display the established way of life of the Livermore Valley.
Inside, docents talk about the beginnings of Livermore, even before it was a city, all the way up to the present day.
The HistoryMobile visits third grades in all Livermore elementary schools and appears at local events such as the Farmer’s Market, Ravenswood, parades, festivals and wine events.
The goal is to educate the community and instill a sense of pride in our Livermore heritage.
Driver of the HistoryMobile today is Loretta Kaskey.


#43  Liv.Her. 1920 Seagrave Fire Truck
And here we have the 1920 Seagrave Fire Engine.
Livermore’s first commercially built fire engine, a 1920 Seagrave, was purchased for the enormous price of $11,000 in 1916, shortly after St. Michael’s Church burned to the ground.
12 volunteer members of the Livermore Heritage Guild restored the vehicle to like-new condition. Restoration required 3-1/2 years and donations are still accepted to help with maintenance and operation of the Seagrave. Gasoline consumption of this machine is somewhere between 1 and 4 miles per gallon depending on speed.
The Seagrave is being driven by Rotarian Irving Stowers and Will Bolton. Will Bolton is the curator of the Duarte Garage Museum on North “L” Street.
Also riding in the Seagrave are Andrea Loyd, Usha Khulllar, Susan Junk, and Barbara Soules, all Heritage Guild members.

Jeff Kaskey, the President of the Livermore Heritage Guild, is driving and Ron Chaffee is his assistant.
They are accompanied by live music sponsored by the Bankhead Theater's free Evenings on the Green which will be in front of the Bankhead on Tuesday summer evenings 5:30 - 8:30 pm from June 13 - August 15.
