Plumas-Eureka State Park Association will be holding its second annual Dinner at the Park on Thursday, Aug. 22, at 5:30 p.m. in the historic area of the park.
Ticket sales will be limited to 100 attendees, by advanced ticket purchase only; organizers suggest purchasing tickets early. Tickets are $60 per person and include dinner prepared by Sean Conry, of Longboards Bar & Grill. A no-host bar will also be available.
National Park Service Ranger Frank Helling will present a special interpretive/educational presentation on John Muir.
Helling brings John Muir to audiences beginning with his early life in Wisconsin and continuing until he was recognized as the Father of the National Park Service in the early 1900s. His program tells the Muir story in a riveting first-person account. Recent events at which he has presented sold out far in advance.
The evening will also include a fundraising auction featuring works from local artists as well as gifts donated by local merchants. The coveted prizes of the evening will be a painting by renowned local artist Leland Cross, and a dinner for six cooked by Chef Conry at a home of the winner’s choosing.
For tickets, contact Jay Skutt at firstname.lastname@example.org or 836-4135 or Lyn Nafzgar at email@example.com or 836-1182 to reserve a space. Tickets are available for purchase at the park museum front desk or the Graeagle Mill Works.
“We hope that you will join us in our beautiful state park!” say organizers. All proceeds benefit Plumas-Eureka State Park Association and the interpretive and educational programs at the park.
