SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Jay “Sparky” Longley, founder of the San Clemente-based Rainbow Sandals, will be honored by the San Clemente Historical Society for his many years of civic support during a tile mural dedication ceremony on Monday morning, Nov. 15.
The Historical Society will hold the ceremony for the dedication of the historic tile that depicts the Ole Hanson Beach Club at 9 a.m. Monday, at 143 Avenida Del Mar, in Downtown San Clemente.
Longley sponsored the decorative mural with a $10,000 contribution from his Rainbow Sandals Foundation last December. The tile sponsored by Longley is one of 14 tiles planned for the Landmarks on Del Mar project.
The tile program at the rest areas along Del Mar is a coordinated effort of the Historical Society, the city of San Clemente and the Downtown Business Association to memorialize historic structures from the town’s past.
