Island Icons


The Coronado Historical Association is pleased to announce that it is launching the “Island Icons” initiative as a monthly feature in Coronado Magazine. This monthly column is the product of a special archival project conducted by CHA’s volunteers. True to its mission to serve as Coronado’s primary center for community history, CHA will feature special interviews with Coronado seniors on special occasions, such as birthdays and anniversaries. These historical vignettes feature insights and personal memories from Island Icons who share their life experiences in Coronado, recording the personal histories that may be lost in the near future without this initiative. 


This project is best for people who have an interest in meticulously gathering details from people's stories for our archives, enjoy conversations, can prompt a new question with ease, and is comfortable writing a 500-800 word article by the due date. Volunteers sign up for this project by indicating interest when they apply for volunteering or if you are already a volunteer let us know.
