Over 250 people attended the annual outdoor event known as Summerfest on June 30 at the historic White Sulphur Springs Ranch in Clio.
This was the 11th consecutive fundraiser sponsored by the Mohawk Valley Stewardship Council in furtherance of their goal to rehabilitate White Sulphur Springs Ranch. A dedicated group of more than 75 volunteers provided house tours, great food and both live and silent auctions.
Visitors taking the tour of the old Ranch House were amazed at the state of restoration. Volunteers worked hard to clear the decks after a very successful rummage sale was held earlier in the month. Although only partially completed, the bath house represented the first new construction on the site in the last half century.
Local businessman Chris David produced the entertainment and acted as master of ceremonies. A 10-piece band calling themselves the Reno Bad Boys along with vocalist Jackie Landrum amazed the crowd with a wide range of popular musical favorites.
Next year’s Summerfest is already in the planning stage. Residents and guests can expect another great Plumas County event in 2020.
