Lois Hildenbrand has been a docent for the San Joaquin County
Museum since 1978.
While spending some time at her daughter's house in Fresno in
1990, she attended the Fresno museum's Festival of Trees. She then
decided it would be a nice event for the local museum and went to
work on getting it started.
