    Hi Brea Old and New followers! I hope all is well with you! Many thanks to you for subscribing to our local good news! We greatly appreciate it!! Today, I’m writing to give you an update regarding the city of Brea’s 1st young person’s book — Charlie the Rockin’ Clock in Brea History’s Biggest Hits! Click here to read the background of this amazing community-oriented centennial project.

      Pacific Electric Red Cars finally reach what will be Brea in 1910, at last linking the isolated townsite with the wider world.

        This project has been in the making for 18 months now. We have experienced the usual delays in executing a project along with unexpected problems.

          After a major setback, the author, Teresa Hampson, and I will be working together in seeking sponsorship dollars needed to publish the book.

            I’m thankful for all the people who have been supporting this project, in and outside of the community!

              Currently, I have a Fullerton College student who is interested in drawing the dimensions needed to make a Charlie the Clock mascot.

                Charlie the Clock has touched people worldwide on Instagram! People like the cute time traveling historic clock whose mission is to make people smile ☺ while piquing their interest in history!

                  It’s been a long journey to move this project along. Unfortunately, the centennial book will not get published this year. We project that it will be accomplished early next year! Better late than never!!

                    Relative to other cities in Orange County, we are small, yet big enough as I'm always learning that a lot of people don't know about Brea's centennial book yet.

                      I'm doing my best to spread the word about our young person's history book, and ask that you hop-on the Brea train to help raise awareness of Brea's unique centennial book - a once-in-a-lifetime special treasure!

                        Should you have any questions -- do not hesitate to contact me.

                          Thanks again for your support!

                            Wishing you and yours a joyous holiday season!!

                              P.S. Farrell's Brea is naming an ice cream sundae after Charlie the Clock!! How cool is that!! Hint: The last chapter named: Party Time! takes place in Brea Downtown and ends on a high note with special guests arriving to celebrate..

                                Best,

                                  Carolyn Campbell
