Live music will be played throughout the afternoon by Susanville band Timeless hosted by Ace Hardware. Guests can enjoy Indian artisans, other crafts and refreshments from a variety of vendors including popular Indian Tacos. Beverages being poured by The Almanor Foundation.

“We are very excited to partner with the Maidu Summit Consortium to launch “the season” at Lake Almanor and what more fitting way than to raise funds to help return our lake to its original beauty,” says Joyce Ruschaupt, board director and events chair for The Almanor Foundation.
