A Few Brews & A Banjo benefits school arts programs

The public is cordially invited to spend a sunny summer afternoon meeting and mingling with folks along the north fork of the Feather River under cottonwood trees in Chester Park. Join Plumas Arts on June 23, from 3 to 7 p.m., for the next annual “A Few Brews & A Banjo,” the annual fundraiser for music and arts programs in the Chester schools.

In addition to a selection of tasty micro-brewed beer, there will be musical entertainment, nonalcoholic beverages and Sierra Smoke Pit Barbeque, which will be providing plates and sandwiches for sale.

Featured beers will be provided by The Brewing Lair, Lassen Ale Works, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, Lost Coast, Great Basin and Mad River, with which will also be providing food samplings.

Presale discount beer tasting tickets for $25 are available in Chester at Plumas Bank in Chester and Books & Beyond. At the gate the ticket price will be $30. Music is provided at no charge.

Music begins at 3 p.m. with The Lost Sierra Ramblers & Friends presenting musical styles coming together in a danceable variety, from Western Swing to Eastern European and everything in between.

Brad Peterson and Friends present music bred from family ties in country music that run back three generations and carry his love for country music forward for the closing set.

Plumas Arts has been the events sponsor for many years. The event is staffed by community volunteers who help with the set up, beer serving, clean-up and take-down and all other aspects of the event. Come out to enjoy a great event and benefit local students.

    So everyone can drink alcohol for kids… but we can’t place an ordinance to gain tax money for kids off cannabis? Ridiculous. Vote Yes on Measure B and let’s see some real revenue allocated to these programs instead of fundraisers that undermine the real issues in this County. Alcohol, opioids, and meth have ravaged this community.
