Last week I posted my monthly game for readers of my newsletter and my Facebook Fan Page, "Who Can Name This Building?"
Of those who contacted me, 8 people had correct answers so were entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to one of our local businesses.
The Answer: Carrington Hall at Sequoia High School in Redwood City, California
I learned from one of my callers, a music teacher whose husband had served for many years as the Superintendent of Schools in neighboring San Carlos, that the Hall was named after Dr. Carrington, a gifted musician and music teacher at Sequoia High School, and that the Peninsula Symphony Orchestra originally met here to practice and perform.
Another entrant in the contest made 2 incorrect guesses before contacting me with the right answer, saying "I'm as blind as a bat and dumb as a doorpost...it's Carrington Hall at Sequoia High School...I only worked there for 20 years!" We had a great laugh together as I applaud her for her persistence--I had a feeling she knew!
Next month another local building, place or park will be featured, so join in the fun!
