Cookie sales to help fund plaque for La Jolla’s Wall Street post office building

By Pat Sherman

The La Jolla Historical Society and Girard Gourmet are teaming up to celebrate the Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force’s  recent, hard-earned victory: having La Jolla’s Wall Street post office officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The historical society must now raise funds to purchase a commemorative plaque to place on the post office building, which could cost upwards of $900.

Beginning Thursday, Jan. 31 Girard Gourmet, 7837 Girard Ave., will sell post office-themed cookies, proceeds from which will be used to help purchase the plaque. The cookies will be available while supplies last.

The La Jolla Historical Society will also sell the cookies from a booth at La Jolla’s Open Aire Market on Sunday, Feb. 4.

Additional donations for the plaque can be sent to: La Jolla Historical Society Preservation Fund/Post Office at P.O. Box 2085, La Jolla, CA 92038-2085
