Club Meeting at Fort Mason Center 


Nov. 26, Saturday, CLUB MEETING - San Francisco Bay Area Post Card Club from 11 AM to 3 PM at Fort Mason Center, San Francisco in Building C, Room C-205.  The club meeting will be called to order at 1:00 PM and the program will follow:


This month's program is presented by and is about "Emperor Norton," specifically Joseph Amster in his alter-ego as Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico will present a PowerPoint talk about Emperor Norton. During his talk you will learn about Emperor Nortonóthe man and the myth, his rise and fortune, how he lost everything and became the Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico, how San Francisco embraced his Imperial reign, the truth about Bummer and Lazarus, The Widow Norton, Nortonís relationship to the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus, his death and burial, and much more.


Joseph Amster is a tour guide, journalist, historian, California native, and resident of San Francisco on and off since the Ď70s.  He currently serves as a board member of the San Francisco History Association and is a founder of the Emperor Norton Legacy League.  In 2011, he and his husband Rick Shelton founded Time Machine Tours. Because of their backgrounds in the performing arts, they decided to offer historical walking tours as characters from San Francisco's history. It has received raving reviews.
  HOLIDAY FINGER FOOD POTLUCK:  As every November, the festive board will be groaning under the trays and platters of sweet and savory finger foods that we each prepare. Cookies or cheese, anchovies or chocolateóbring what you enjoy sharing. The club will provide plates, table ware and some drinks. Please remember that we will be looking at postcards; goopy and greasy tidbits will not be in order.  This is the last meeting for 2022.  The next meeting will be in January 2023.  Fort Mason and the SF Department of Public Health have stated that people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 are required to bring proof of vaccination, but are not required to wear a mask, and that people who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask.  Itís recommended that everyone wear a Covid-19 mask.  We will observe whatever rules are in place at the time.  Stay safe.  Please bring cards for Show & Tell, and items for Raffle and Free Tables.  There is an hourly fee for parking within the gates of Fort Mason Center, but upper Fort Mason (enter at Franklin and Bay Streets) and parking spaces along the Marina Green are free.  Parking can be difficult, so come early and enjoy the Goody Cafe, Maritime Library, Greens Restaurant or amble through the community garden, because thereís plenty to see and do.  We often gather before 11 AM at the picnic tables or in the exhibit area in Bldg. B.  More info on directions, GPS, parking, maps, etc.
