The San Joaquin Historical Society and Micke Grove Zoological Society have selected the Bank of Stockton as the recipient of this year's Legends of California Award, in honor of the bank's contribution to and support of agriculture and the wine-grape industry. The award is presented at the annual Legends of California Wine Auction and Dinner, scheduled for April 18 in the Lodi Grape Festival Pavilion.

Bank of Stockton was established in 1867, just two years after the Civil War. The bank celebrated its 141st anniversary in August of 2008, and has been a strong supporter of the agricultural industry since its inception. The bank has 16 branches in contiguous market areas, encompassing San Joaquin County, Modesto, Turlock, Rio Vista, Pine Grove, Angels Camp and Elk Grove and continues to be the largest locally-owned independent community bank in San Joaquin County. Under the leadership of its eighth President, Douglass M. Eberhardt, Bank of Stockton continues in its tradition of unprecedented strength, stability and commitment to the agricultural community.

Held in April of each year, the Legends of California Wine Auction and Dinner is a celebration of leadership-service in California agricutlture, most specifically the grape and wine industry. The event consists of an auction featuring world class wines and dining and entertainment packages. The auction is preceded by a dinner of original foods, paired with featured wines and prepared by chefs and caterers in Northern California. Proceeds benefit the San Joaquin County Historical Society and Museum and the Micke Grove Zoological Society.

For information and reservations, call Judy Rodman at 339-1096 or the San Joaquin Historical Society at 331-2055.
