Chapter 136 exists to advance the art and science of horology (timekeeping). Our club actively serves the public and supports its members by providing educational opportunities, encouraging preservation, facilitating research, providing online venues for information exchange, and sponsoring events. 
We meet monthly at the Vista Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum.

October is Clock Month for many of us. Almost every weekend this month provided us with an opportunity to get involved with our hobby. 
*Oct 7th and 8th we sponsored our Chapter 136 Clock Mart at AGSEM. We filled the Farm House with tables full of clock goodies. Because of the other events at the museum we got to introduce our club and horology to many who past by. 
*Oct 14th & 15th sent us to the Del Mar Fair Grounds for the NAWCC Southwestern Regional many of our members assisted Chapter 59 with registration and setup. The deals were abundant and many treasures were found.
* Oct 21st,22nd,28th & 29th found many of us at the West Coast Clock and Watch Museum as Docents during the AGSEM Fall Show. What a wonderful opportunity to introduce Horology to both young and old! For many it was the first time they had visited the museum or had seen so many clocks and watches in one place. 
* Oct the 28th was our monthly Chapter meeting. New officers were elected, Ernie Lopez gave a presentation on the history of the WCCWM,  Lots of show'n tells were presented.  See the photos below for highlights of our busy month. 

There will be no meetings until January 2018 due to the Holidays. Have a great rest of the year.
