“A Grave Occasion” was such a popular event last year that the Plumas County Museum is resurrecting the fundraiser once again Saturday, Sept. 17, from 3 p.m. till dusk at the historic Quincy Cemetery.
Dignitaries who will be there is spirit include John D. Goodwin, first Superior Court judge in Plumas County; James H. Whitlock, ’49er, county surveyor and veteran of the 1860s Indian wars; Martha and Fenton Whiting, dog sled mail operators and longtime county residents; Marguerite Foley, Quincy dance studio entrepreneur; Cecilia Chamberlain, Hogan family descendant and Indian Valley Bank president; James Betterton, casualty of a mad bomber; John Jenkins and Thomas Elder, the first legally executed duo in Plumas County history; John Boyle, attorney, shot down on Main Street, Quincy, in 1913 by newspaper editor F.G. Hail over the county high school; and Mary Dunn, Meadow Valley native and longtime school teacher in Plumas County.
Patrick and Dee LeCoq will cater dinner, which will be followed by a presentation by Cheryl Nichols on paranormal research and Calin Turcotte on the Chinese burial question. A silent auction and other activities will also be a part of the occasion.
Tickets are sure to sell out — they did last year. To purchase or for more information contact the museum at 283-6320 or plumasmuseum.org.
