On Saturday, October 27th, The Men’s Club visited what is now known as Oakridge Estates.  Some 80 years ago Barbara Stanwyck purchased a piece of property in the San Fernando Valley.  The property bordered on the north by Devonshire Blvd, on the east by Reseda Blvd, on the south by what is now Lassen, and on the west by what is now Wilbur.  On this property Ms. Stanwyck and Zeppo Marx, her agent and one of the Marx Brothers, built separate homes.  Additionally, a thoroughbred training track and ranch were added.  During this time period, Barbara and Zeppo called this the Marwych Ranch.

On Saturday, February 17, 2018, The Men’s Club visited the Santa Susan Depot Museum and Model Railroad display in Simi Valley.  Our docent, Curt, was very outgoing and added so much to the tour.  We were limited in time to two hours, but, I’m sure Curt could have gone all-day with the history and stories about the depot.

Menís Club at Murphy Auto Museum

On Saturday, July 22, The Men’s Club took a field trip to the Murphy Auto Museum in Oxnard. Not the largest collect of older vehicles, but what a variety of well maintained and perfectly restored rolling stock.  The collection of miscellaneous garage items was extensive; signs, 3D pictures and statues, go-carts, bikes, tools, motors and old Sun Tune-up rolling equipment.  The collection included trailers for the campers and motorcycles for the daredevils.  In the middle of all this was an H O train layout the size of which was truly amazing.  It was built and maintained by a club of true train enthusiasts.  The detail of the entire display was unbelievable to say the least.  If you enjoy cars and would like to see a massive H O train layout, this is the place to go.   The group enjoyed a seafood lunch at Andria’s on the Ventura Harbor.  The view of the harbor form the outside patio was spectacular.  The cool weather and slight breeze made for a nice break from our triple digit temps.
