John T. Rickard Airport Terminal Dedication
The Santa Barbara Airport dedicated their newest terminal to Judge John T. Rickard. Santa Barbara native Judge Rickard served the Santa Barbara community in many ways, making valuable contributions to the history and future of Santa Barbara through his roles as a Judge, Mayor of Santa Barbara, lawyer, president of the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, and Old Spanish Days El Presidente. He was a long-time member of the Old Spanish Days Board of Directors and served as El Presidente in both 1948 and 1949. His son, Dennis Rickard, has followed in his father’s footsteps in serving the community and is the El Presidente for 2014.
Thank you all for another year of wonderful Santa Barbara memories! Thank you for all that supported Old Spanish Days Fiesta, it would not have been possible without your spirit and dedication. Please mark your calendars for Fiesta 2014, which will be held July 30th – August 3rd.
Viva la Fiesta!
