Bobby at the Mall

Maria Flumani writes:

“Read the article with interest this morning. Robert Kennedy also visited the Weberstown Mall during this time and I was fortunate enough to see him in person with my very young daughters.

“I remember having moved to California recently, not yet driving – walking to the Mall from our apartment to see him.  So happy I made the effort to do so.

“He was everything you imagine … so handsome (much more so than in photos), so engaging and he, of course, drew quite a crowd.  People just wanting to touch him – to reach out.  It was a memorable occasion.  I couldn’t find any photos of him online at that location..but he was certainly there. ”

Yes, RFK visited Stockton twice in March of ’68 — really working the Valley in the run-up to the California presidential primary. He he is in the mall.
