Dana Point Harbor Celebrates 50 Years!
Fifty years ago, on Monday, August 26, 1966, a rock-placing ceremony sponsored by the County of Orange, the Orange County Harbor District and local organizations marked the start of construction of Dana Point Harbor.  The event took place at Doheny State Beach, during which a time capsule was sealed into a rock chosen from those forming the breakwater.

On May 6, 2016, Orange County Parks removed the 8-ton rock from Puerto Place in the Harbor to the John D. Cooper Archaeological and Paleontological Center in Santa Ana.  Here, the time capsule contents will be cataloged and prepared for the exhibit.  "The Rock" will be steam cleaned and placed at its new location, Baby Beach.

Please join us for the festivities at Dana Point Harbor's Baby Beach when the time capsule's contents will be revealed - exactly 50 years after the signature event.  The unveiling ceremony will begin at 4pm and a welcome address will be made by Supervisor Bartlett

Please join us for a BBQ Dinner at the Time Capsule Ceremony!

Pearl Zimmerman, MD 
Pearl Zimmerman, MD's private practice specializes in Functional and Integrative Medicine.  Dr. Zimmerman explains her approach this way: "Functional Medicine works with the truth that our bodies function as an interrelated whole.  I determine whether you have any nutritional deficiencies that can prevent your body from healing or working correctly.  I work with you to ensure that your rain neurotransmitters, blood sugar balance, adrenal, sex and thyroid hormones are all at optimum levels.  I focus on strengthening your immune system.  I test for genetic mutations, as these can affect whether or not certain medications or supplements will harm you or fail to help you. Functional Medicine means we no longer treat symptoms, we treat you.  Thanks to this approach, I have often been able to successfully diagnose and treat health issues that my patients had previously struggled with for years."  Appointments can be scheduled by calling (949) 328-4817
