Help Support Lost Parks of Northern California

Phone Cover Display

Not sure what to give your loved one for Christmas this year?

Want to get that amusement park fanatic in your family the gift that says, “I understand how much you love parks!”

Looking to support a worthy cause in the process?

Then do we have the gift for you!

We’ve created several different cell phone back cover designs – all with our local lost parks in mind. From the shores of San Mateo, to the wintry scenes of Santa’s Village – you can be stylin’ and profilin’ with the most unique phone case out there.

  The cases are good for regular duty, bumps and scrapes, and they currently are made for:

-iPhone 4/4s

-iPhone 5/5s

– Samsung Galaxy S3

– Samsung Galaxy s4

We’re offering these functional collectables for the introductory price of $20, plus shipping.You can’t find an awesome case for cheaper than that!

Plus, 100% of all proceeds from the sales of these covers goes directly to deferring the cost of the Lost Parks series.

As some of you know, we don’t make money off the series, but it still does cost money to produce. From gas to food, photo rights and tolls, it adds up quickly.

If you’re interested in purchasing or picking one up, please e-mail: kris@greatamericanthrills.net with your requests. We are currently working on a storefront, but are not quite ready to debut it just yet.

We take all forms of payment, including PayPal, credit cards and cash / check.

So, preserve the past by preserving your phone – get your official Lost Parks phone cover today!

San Mateo County History Museum Presentation a Success

For everyone who attended my “Lost Parks” history presentation at the San Mateo County History Museum last weekend – an immense THANK YOU is in order!

IMG_1039

Over 60 of you attended the event (which was a VERY large crowd for these sorts of events, according to the museum staff). And the feedback we received was universally positive. If you’ve never been to this museum – the building itself is a piece of art, in addition to all of the exhibits!

If you missed the event – don’t despair – we’re already working on a video of the presentation, so you can attend “virtually.”
