LO/BP History Picture Book

LO-BP-coverWhat started out to be a Celebrate Los Osos project to create a walking/driving map of Los Osos/Baywood Park by George (Will) Kastner (formerly of LOCO) and Lynette Tornatzky (CLO Board Member) became a book on the history of Los Osos/Bay-wood Park. One hundred and sixty five wonderful people helped to fill the pages with stories and photographs. Whether you live here now or did so in the past, visited here on a vacation, or are curious about an off-the-beaten-path town that resonates on a slightly different wavelength, you will enjoy reading how it got that way. All author proceeds benefit Celebrate Los Osos to continue making Los Osos more beautiful, one project at a time. (And eventually, the walking/driving map will materialize!)

Places to purchase - and maybe a note to shops in LO anyway - call first - they have run out of copies more than once. (Not all of the places have websites that make sense to use, so here are the local telephone numbers.)
