  1. Tonight, the public is urged to attend a free concert by the TVCC Summer Jazz and Concert bands. It will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Meyer-McLean Theatre, 676 S.W. Fifth Ave., Ontario (attendees are encouraged to use the campus entrance). The bands will be led by director Carl G. Sorensen. Doors open at 7 p.m.
  2. On this day in 1899, film director Alfred Hitchcock — who helmed many of Hollywood’s classic thrillers including: “Vertigo,” “Rear Window,” “The Birds” and “Psycho” — was born. Hitchcock worked with many legendary performers throughout his career, most memorably, Janet Leigh in a famous shower scene, according to Britannica.
  3. Also on this day, in 1521, Hernán Cortéz, the Spanish conquistador, captured what is now Mexico City following a 93-day siege. This ended the Aztec Empire and secured Mexico for the crown of Spain, according to Britannica.
