A new festival is being organized in Taylorsville for Saturday, June 25, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Jobe Taylor Pioneer Day is named in honor of the town founder.

Organizer Debbie Allen has several activities arranged through different individuals and community organizations.

There will be guided walks of the historic town, a quilting bee demonstration, a dunk tank and vendors of vintage crafts like barn quilts, as well as jewelry, gems, minerals and plants from 4-H kids.

Lots of food will be available, including a hot breakfast cooked up by fire department volunteers starting at 8 a.m., and Indian tacos by the Seymour Smith family later in the day.

There will be games and children’s activities as well.

Two special activities that day are a dedication celebration at the historic Pearce Ranch, and square dancing lessons and fun at the Taylorsville Grange Hall.

For more information about the town celebration, call Debbie Allen at 284-7622.

Pearce Ranch

The Pearce Ranch conservation dedication will take place from 10 a.m. to noon, with some light refreshments followed by brief talks about the history of the ranch and the significance of the conservation easement with the Feather River Land Trust.

Presenters opening the celebration will include Susie Pearce, owner and rancher; Paul Hardy, land trust executive director; Linda Hansen, of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy; and a Pearce Ranch land trust donor.

At about 11 a.m., Pearce will lead the group on a hike through a meadow on the ranch and up to a hilltop where she will share a wonderful view of Indian Valley.

Swinging Squares

Folks from the North State Dancer Association will lead this fun day of square dancing lessons followed by a watermelon feed, a potluck dinner and then some floor-shaking dance action.

Admission is a $9 donation.

Lessons will be from 1 – 3 p.m., followed by the food, then pre-rounds begin at 6:30 p.m., with the main dancing from 7 – 10 p.m.

For more information about this event, call Roger LePage at 605-6068, or Donn Thompson at 872-1962.
