Rummage sale complete, Summerfest next

The first ever rummage sale at White Sulphur Springs Ranch on June 8 was successful beyond all expectations. The community responded by donating a wide range of goods and other members of the community snatched them up in great numbers.

A less tangible, but equally important benefit to the Mohawk Valley Stewardship Council’s efforts to rehabilitate the site was the exposure that so many new visitors had to the interior of the old ranch house. People seemed very happy to become more familiar with the old white house they had driven by so often and were glad to see that things inside are progressing.

There were so many goods of such a wide variety that they had to be spread outside on both sides of the House as well as completely covering the living room, dining room and kitchen of the old building. The hours of the sale were from 8 in the morning till 2 in the afternoon, but bargain seekers got there early and stayed late.

Summerfest 2019


The next event scheduled for White Sulphur Springs Ranch is Summerfest 2019. This is the 11th annual concert fundraiser that helps in the rehabilitation of the historic property.

Summerfest is a tradition in Plumas County. Each year it occurs on or about the last Sunday in June; this year on Sunday, June 30. The entertainment portion of the program will be produced and emceed by Chris David. He will introduce 10 professional musicians called the Reno Bad Boys. They will perform crossover country, from Hank Williams to Jimmy Buffet as well as many other specialty tunes.

Besides the entertainment, there will be burgers with all the trimmings, plus dessert and both live and silent auctions. As usual, this is an outdoor event. Gates open at 3 p.m. and attendees should bring a lawn chair but no pets.
