To commemorate this Founding anniversary, Morro Bay BEAUTIFUL has commissioned a painting of Morro Bay by Acclaimed Folk Artist Eric Dowdle. AND - This painting will be made into a PUZZLE.
We will unveil the Original Art for the Puzzle at this party, and:
The town of Morro Bay was founded by Franklin Riley in 1870 as a port for the export of dairy and ranch products. He was instrumental in the building of a wharf which has now become the Embarcadero. During the 1870’s, schooners could often be seen at the Embarcadero picking up wool, potatoes, barley, and dairy products.
1870 to 2020 = 150 years
Morro Bay BEAUTIFUL was started by Warren and Phyllis Dorn in 1981, with the purpose of keeping Morro Bay clean and BEAUTIFUL.
1981 – 2021 = 40 years
People who live in Morro Bay are truly blessed. You are invited to the Birthday Party to celebrate our town and this momentous year (and last year, during which we couldn’t celebrate).
Eric Dowdle, Puzzle Artist
