Yoda, Indiana Jones & the San Anselmo Chamber of Commerce

“Dear Mr. Lucas:”

We imagine that’s how the letter from San Anselmo (CA) Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Connie Rodgers to filmmaker George Lucas, of Indiana Jones and Star Wars fame, began.

Lucas is a San Anselmo resident, and he owned property in downtown San Anselmo that the chamber was interested in acquiring. So, Rodgers wrote to Lucas earlier this month and asked, “Would you be interested in donating the land to our nonprofit organization … so that we could turn it into a park?” The response?

According to Rodgers, “When the chamber approached him he was happy to donate the land to such a worthy cause,” Lucas donated the property to the San Anselmo Community Foundation; the plan is raise funds to help build the town center park, which will feature bronze statues of Indiana Jones and Yoda.
